    Hi, I've just refurbished my last Gaggia MDF grinder (2001). It is white in colour and has some storage related scratches, and some light stains, what I couldn't get rid of, internally it was immaculate even when I opened it up. It comes with the rubber seal stepless mod, for £110 posted (via...

    Good evening, I am trying To convert my Gaggia MDF grinder to doserless. I think the rancilio rocky chute looks useful to the conversion. Could anyone who owns the rocky grinder provide me with the internal dimensions of the plastic chute which is on the grinder output. I'm hoping it is a...

    Hi guys, Selling my Gaggia MDF as I upgraded to an Iberital MC2. This Gaggia MDF produces a good grind for espresso. I've recorded a video of me pulling an espresso shot with coffee beans ground with the Gaggia MDF, and then pulled with my new Fracino Piccino - the video will be posted below...

    I recently bought a Gaggia MDF online - when it arrived the handle to release the dose was broken off. In case return shipping proves too expensive, is there any way I can fix this? It would need to be a replacement part I think - it seems to have snapped clean off and I don't think superglue...

    Hi all. I think I need to replace the burrs on my MDF. I have found them from a Gaggia spares site for £22 each...not the pair!!!! This does seem rather steep to me. Can anyone suggest a good supplier of burrs at a slightly more reasonable price?
  6. All Grinders & Hand-Grinders
    I am currently grinding on my MDF at minimum setting of 1 & 2. Most forums, videos and other places of advice suggest the MDF be set approx 6-8 for espresso. I feel that my shots are still running a little fast even at that low grind setting. So my question is, does it sound like my burrs need...

    Finally decided I'm after buying a black Gaggia MDF to go with my little cubika - does anyone know where I can get the best deal on one? I just missed one on the for sale board here, and don't really want to spend £200 on one, have seen them at about £180, but often with Euro plug so probably...

    Hi there I have a 2003 Gaggia Classic, Gaggia MDF grinder and Gaggia base for sale. Also included is a milk jug. This was bought by me second hand in 2006. It has been in daily use since then. Regular descales and occasional back flushes. Reason for sale is I have splashed out on a new...

    Hi everyone I just joined the forum to learn more about pimping my Coffee machine. I ordered a £12.99 PID+SSR+TempProbe off eBay (from China) and am hoping to improve my shots on my Gaggia Coffee Deluxe + MDF grinder that I've had for around 5 years:)

    Hi, Steve here (squarehead....because I have a square head and am proud of it). Had a Europiccola, sold it along with my soul and quite incredibly bought a Gaggia Baby Class (no research). Finally sat down and did the research and now just bought a reconditioned La San Marco 85 16M Prac. and...

    Something has happened to the spring (presumably) on the doser handle on my Gaggia MDF grinder. The unit still grinds and dispenses coffee but the handle doesn't snap back into place making a bit awkward to use (first world problems eh?) Is this something that can be easily fixed or is this a...

    Can you help me identify the grinder? It looks like the MDF but I couldn't find it in red anywhere so I'm not quite sure:

    Howdy! I've been attempting to get something close to reasonable out of my combo for a little while now, but i'm beginning to suspect that there might be a problem with the kit. I've managed to bring my shot pull time up to about 25 seconds and I'm getting something resembling an espresso...

    Hello fellow coffee drinkers, Just subscribed to this forum. I found out about it when I read the comment on this youtube video. I would be interested in the comments on this vid, but I can't find a thread about the vid. Frothing the milk is something I'm still struggling with. I saw a lot of...

    Hi, I have a Gaggia MDF which is okay, but not real crazy about the grind settings. For instance, I normally have to use between a 3-5 (mostly 4) setting. I really need either a 3 1/2 or a 4 1/2(depending on the beans). What about a Cunhil Tranquilo or a Lelit(is it?) Pl-55? Anyone? I don't...

    OK, nothing new to report to the seasoned coffee enthusiasts here, but new members might find this of interest. The Gaggia MDF is probably the most widely known of entry-level 'serious' coffee grinders - it has a professional standard burr mechanism and is very solidly built. It produces good...
