    I have a Gaggia Evolution which I bought from ebay a while back. The seller said that she noticed that there were problems with the water getting hot enough when she was getting it ready to send, so I ended up paying almost nothing for it and thought it would be a repair project. When it arrived...

    I've just won a Gaggia Evolution on ebay. I was really pleased, its the red version which should fit in perfectly with my kitchen and the machine has had very little use (a shot a week over 2/3 years) in a soft water area. However, the vendor has just contacted me to say that they tested it...

    As per forum rules, I am starting a new thread to indicate that I am now willing to split the lot listed here http://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?26727-FOR-SALE-Gaggia-Evolution-Auber-PID-steam-wand-upgrade-%A390 since there was some interest in the PID alone. Since the PID is still...

    hi all This machine (about 7 or 8 years old) has been leaking water while brewing the coffee, making it very hard to get only coffee in the cup rather than hot water too! I imagine this is some seal or other I need to replace? Thanks Mark

    Gaggia evolution, is it basically a classic in a different case? Any major differences? This would be a project/spare so what to look for? ok it seems it doesn't have a 3 way solenoid valve but how does this affect it, I get how the valve works (I think) but not how a machines works without it...

    Hello, I love a cup of good coffee. I have been working as a barista in popular coffee house in Manchester. I now live in cambridgeshire and can't find anywhere that takes coffee seriously. Have to resort to making acceptable coffee at home with my Gaggia Evolution. Looking to upgrade to...

    Hi everyone, I've had my trusty Gaggia evolution for a good while now, and try to look after it pretty well with regular descaling and the like. recently, however, the brew handle (? the spouts where you put the basket) seem to be rather clogged. The coffee only comes out of one side now and...

    Hi, I've had a Gaggia Evolution for a few months now, but only recently bought myself a MC2. So I'm now really getting into timing and trying to perfect my espressos. I'm pretty sure my machine isnt working properly, it seems to be pouring too slowly. Heres a link to a video I've just made...

    I have found that the gaggia evolution is considerably cheaper than the cubika and classic. Is this a reflection of the quality of coffee it can produce? I havent found many, if any, helpful reviews so far. Does anyone have any experience with the evolution?

    I have a Gaggia Evolution, which I believe is the Gaggia Baby? Never Descaled Before... In the four years that I have owned her, I have never descaled her until the other day and purchased a new outlet valve from gaggiamanualservice.com as mine was so seized up with scale the inner screw split...

    I recently bought a second-hand Gaggia Evolution from eBay, having previously owned a Gran Gaggia. I didn't look after my Gran very well, but it worked well for a couple of years until it fell on the floor and broke during a move. Oops. I have vowed to learn more about my new machine, and to...

    Hello all, Afraid I'm very new to this, but I have a Gaggia Evolution that over the last few weeks has produced less and less water, to the extent where I'm down to drips. However, the pump seems to be working fine as water will come out quite happily from the steam wand. I've been looking...
  15. Gaggia Forum
    Hi, I don't steam milk often but i'm not sure if i'm doing it right! Basically, i press the button to get up to steam temp. When the green light comes on indicating it's hot enough i start steaming. But the light doesn't stay lit for long. I assume it's now not hot enough. So do i stop...

    Last week my pump started rattling and smelled burnt after several shots from it in a row. Then it stopped pumping water altogether! I left it for the day and switched it back on, the electrical burning smell still there but now pumping water. For the last few days i've switched it on, pumped...

    I am looking at a Gaggia Cubika or the Evolution, as a recon machine from Gaggia. I'm not a coffee geek, I just like an espresso in the morning. I also want to use it to froth up the odd hot chocolate. I have had a Krups machine for a few years that has just bit the dust. Any info greatly...

    Hi, So, my first week with my new gaggia evolution has gone ok. I've been using some gaggia ground coffee that the shop gave me and is ok, just a little bitter. Problem is, when making an espresso 9 times out of 10 i cant get the shot to run out into the cup. It normally just drips out. I use...

I make a stove top 'Bialetti' fresh coffee each morning but I'm thinking of taking the plunge and going for a proper espresso machine for an Xmas gift for my wife. I've a budget of around £100-£150 but I'm really struggling to find solid reviews and independent...
