  1. I don’t, I have just ordered one though. Do you know if there’s a different grind level I could choose from when ordering online? Seeing as a grinder isn’t an option yet.
  2. I’ve tried without tamping and it’s slightly quicker, but still very slow. I’m thinking it’s the grind that is too fine, is there any way around this?
  3. Hi guys, iÂ’m new to making fresh coffee and have just bought a used Gaggia classic. I bought fresh pre ground a few weeks ago and have tried that and it came out really good, nice flow and good taste. However I received an order from Rave coffee last week and came to try it today (espresso pre ground) The flow was extremely slow and the taste was quite bitter. I did what I did with my last batch and used the small black valve in my portafilter, filled up my basket and tamped it down. Is there something IÂ’m missing? Sorry that itÂ’s a noob question!

    Hi guys

    Not too sure at the moment, is buying fresh pre ground not good for the time being?

    Hi guys

    Thank you, I’ll have a look around next time I’m in town. I haven’t bought a grinder yet, that’s on my list. I’ve just received my first rave coffee order and it’s pre-ground.

    Hi guys

    Hello everyone, just wanted to introduce myself. I’m from a small town from just outside of Liverpool. I’ve recently just bought a second hand Gaggia Classic after much deliberation, I see now why everyone loves it. Anyway, good to meet you all!
