  1. Thanks Phil. I guess it will the a great endorsement if nobody wants to sell!
  2. Haha I wouldn't. I think my Gaggia Classic is ugly but it's what I could afford!
  3. Ah I think it looks amazing! Especially in blue.
  4. Don't suppose anyone is interested in selling one? Would equally like to hear feedback of people who use them? I have a ridgeless 18g VST and I believe these fit nicely.
  5. Ah, the old 'Grey Market'! Unlikely, but a possibility.
  6. Looks like an absolutely perfect solution! Great that Niche will let existing customers have it for the cost of postage too. I think it's good of them not to hold this back until the release of a follow up grinder. Out of interest, do you know if they are planning to make any further models or will they just continue to make small modifications/improvements?
  7. Do you reckon they would send an entry level electric grinder in a replica Niche shell, or nothing at all?
  8. Ah, I've just taken the plunge and bought the £50 Stainless Steel Gaggia version. Now he's done one, is it relatively easy to run a batch of them? There are quite a few here who'd buy one I reckon? £15-£20 would be a good price I reckon. What do they cost to make and do they take hours to print?
  9. I've never had a coffee out of a Moka Pot. Am I missing out? Currently I use a PID 9bar Gaggia Glassic with a Niche. How will a stovetop compare - is it simply personal preference?
  10. Not at all if it's the return pipe from the OPV. Some Classics (& my the as it happens) don't even have one fitted & just have the water pouring back into the tank from the exit in the case. Great, thanks for your help
  11. Great. So it doesn't matter if one of them isn't fully submerged in the water
  12. My Gaggia Classic has two transparent plastic tubes that dangle into the water tank. I'm presuming (possibly incorrectly) that one is for water and one for steam? Or is the other one to return water into the tank? They are not of equal lengths.
  13. Just answered with the below on your other thread. I think it's a bit OTT for most (even on here!) I would be interested in seeing such a machine though! Personally, I'd buy up a few old used classics and modify them to 9 Bar, install a pressure gauge, install a Rancilio Wand, install a PID, put the brass shower head on. 3D print the thinner drip tray and essentially sell the 'perfect' starter machine. Get a good rep for doing this and you'd likely become the 'go to' guy when people ask for a starter machine. When I did my reading, it appeared the Gaggia Classic with 9 Bar and PID was the ideal machine, but there was none available at the 'for sale' section and there was no real go to guy. I reached out to GaggiaManualService and he couldn't help with PID. I paid approx £340 for a Classic with PID, Pressure Gauge and Rancilio Wand. I don't know your margins but I reckon people might pay £380-£400 for the 'ultimate' Gaggia Classic. I guess you'd make it work by buying broken machines for about £50-£70 on Gumtree etc as the base?

I'm also keen on seeing you develop the Dual Boiler Gaggia/KitchenAid!
  15. I love this. Really like the idea of turning an unpopular machine (KitchenAid) into an amazing machine by changing a few of the internals and pimping it up! Any pics?
