    Selling this vintage la Pavoni professional in amazing conditions. Bought this Machine in working conditions, but modified the machine to create amazing speciality espresso.

    What? This easy mod is to re-rout the water discharged from the over pressure valve (OPV) so that instead of being dumped in the drip tray and wasted, it will get reused in the machine. The mod is easy, cheap, invisible and completely reversible. Why? One of the very few complaints about the...

    Dear all I have recently re-entered the espresso world after a hiatus where I lost both my CMA one group and my Super Jolly (stolen from storage). I acquired a Mazzer Major by mistake (didn't check the photos carefully enough - thought I was buying a Super Jolly!!!) for an absolute steal...

    I wanted to try and figure out whether it's better to do a v2 vs. v3 wand install, given the differences in performances, costs, installation, etc. This post serves to collate some information around the boards, and also to get your opinions or updates on what you would recommend. First off...

    Hi all Thank you for welcoming me into the forum. My coffee background is probably going to be frowned upon, but here goes anyway: About 12 years ago I replaced instant coffee with french press. I then got into using stove top coffee makers, thinking that I was drinking espressos. I then...

    Hi, I posted this in the best german coffee forum already, so this is something like a english version of it to this nice forum. I would like to introduce my Gaggia Classic Mods to you today (a bit detailed, sorry): My goal was maximum comfort in the smallest possible space. In the...

    I've finally completed the install of the REX C-100 PID on my Gaggia Classic 2019. The OPV mod made my shots drinkable, this PID mod made my shots enjoyable. I must say I've noticed huge improvement in the cup. Coffee taste is much more balanced and I have more control over it. I was not...
  9. Mahlkönig Grinders
    I got my hands on a Guatemala and got a bit carried away modifying it. So far I have -cut the body down in size (sits around 10cm shorter now) -stripped down and polished the clear acrylic top section of the body -painted it matt black (of course!) -replaced the burrs with SSP Red Speed...

    Hi guys, I'm a complete newb and am working with a 1425w Italian Gaggia Classic and a Krups GVX2 burr grinder. I currently have no budget left but want to get my sights set early on my grinder upgrade. I have a Nemox Lux in my sights and intend to carry out the steppless mod once I've got my...
  11. Mazzer Grinders
    Today I had a real fun with this mod. It took me about 3 hours to prepare the funnel, which is really nice Chinese stuff actually, no worse than original one. I don't have a plate for the motor so I put a piece of self adhesive paper to cover it temporary. Here I am attaching some pictures...

    I've been watching eBay for a suitable Baby as a project, and the model I wanted was the one with 4 square buttons across the front, which should date from around 2004. So bought one and waiting for it to arrive. I wanted a Baby since the top comes right off and it's easier to work on than a...

    Hi, Appologies if this has been covered, I tried having a look and the majority came up with info for Mazzers grinders etc. I have a Eureka MDMCA 65mm burr grinder which I believe is the same as a Simonelli MDX. The opening that the existing hopper fits into is 52.5mm, which size lens hood...
  14. Gaggia Forum
    Hi, First post here and first Gaggia machine. Loving the machine so far even though it did highlight that I need a new grinder, the Bodum Bistro just wasn't good enough even with the 0.8mm offset top burr holder - ROK manual grinder does the job though. Anyway, I notice a lot of folk are...

    Hello folks, for today I upgraded the ugly sticking out stock shower bolt and screen for RS. I think it is worthwhile. Cheers
  16. Quick Mill Forum
    Hi there, just for the fun of it - here's my office unit. Lately did a little service, it's such a neat and fun piece to work on. Very accessible despite its compact footprint. If anyone has questions about the 0835 (or other Quickmill-specific groups) just let me know...!

    Hi people, I own an old 9x Gaggia classic which has some spots of surface rust on usual places. What should I do in order to renovate it. Option 1 Powder paint coating Option 2 Finding a new ss body Option 3 I don't have such The tricky part is that it is gold coated so I don't know how...
  18. Gaggia Forum
    Hello folks, this seems to be my first mod since I have entered this realm. I bought my Gaggia classic with missing pipe for excessive water after 3way-valve as a result I had lots of water around after shots. My Gaggia is gold plated and even I order a ss one, I will end up with an ugly working...

    NEW PRICE: £100 if picked up by the end of this weekend! I am moving to the 120V USA, so I'm selling my beloved Gaggia Paros. The Gaggia Paros is effectively a Gaggia Classic internally with a built in grinder, in a compact unit. It was a perfect starter kit for me in terms of price and...

    I have a Mazzer Mini, and I'm OK with the doser for convenience but there is retention to think of (the clean sweep mod is on the back burner). So in idle moments I research all the Mazzer mods to go doserless. I've looked at the octopus funnel but that needs work on cutting stainless steel...
