  1. Thanks for your responses. Would full fat milk be better?
  2. So I've just got myself a second hand Classic, model 18161/40, and managed to pull my first shot - yay! However, I've not been able to create any foam with the Rancilio steam wand and now I've run out of milk. The milk warms up but stays the same consistency. I was using cold semi-skimmed and probably had about half a pint in the frothing jug. Anyway I'm off to get some more milk and look for another tutorial on Youtube but any pointers welcome.
  3. No problem - will probably be buying one myself soon, but I need to get a machine first!
  4. May have already been mentioned but The Sopranos is very good as is Breaking Bad.
  5. Hi, found this on Amazon? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gaggia-Espresso-Filter-Basket-Pressurised/dp/B004Z7GR1A/ref=asc_df_B004Z7GR1A/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=241136735217&hvpos=1o9&hvnetw=g&hvrand=515391174844562770&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006622&hvtargid=pla-647454426391&psc=1
  6. It was only a couple of days for me once I saw how much the forum had to offer.
  7. Hi, I've just joined the forum as I've decided to have a go at making espresso & cappuccino at home after many years of using a french press. Thought I'd start easy with a 2nd hand Gaggia Classic using a pressurised basket and move on from there when I have got the hang of this. No doubt I will be calling upon your experience at some point! Cheers
