    HELLO ALL; I HAVE DECIDED TO SELL MY OWN ACTUAL CLASSIC FROM JAN 2003. I HAVE HAD THIS BEAUTY FOR MANY YEARS AND SHE HAS BEEN LOOKED AFTER LIKE A QUEEN. I HAVE INSTALLED MANY UPGRADES OVER THE YEARS TO MAKE THIS THE ULTIMATE CLASSIC. BEING OF THIS VINTAGE IT HAS THE THICKER WALLED STAINLESS STEEL CABINET WHICH WAS INTRODUCED CIRCA 2002,WHEN THE PREVIOUS CABINETS WERE RECOGNISED HAS HAVING MAJOR ISSUES WITH RUST AROUND THE INTERNALS/UNDER THE DRIP TRAY AND UNDERSIDE OF THE MACHINE. THIS CABINET IS TOTALLY IMMACULATE AND IN THE RARER ‘MIRRORED’ FINISH MAKING IT VERY COMPATIBLE WITH MOST MODERN KITCHENS. IT HAS THE BRILLIANT AUBER PID INSTALLED TO GIVE YOU THE ULTIMATE CONTROL IN TEMPERATURE,WHICH IS ESSENTIAL IN MINIMISING FLUCTUATIONS IN THE BREWING PROCESS. THE BREW TEMP CAN BE SET FOR DIFFERENT BEANS, FROM LIGHT FRUITY ROASTS TO VERY DARK FULL BODIED BEANS ACCORDING TO YOUR TASTES; IT CAN ALSO BE SET AND FORGOTTEN ABOUT IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO EXPERIMENT. A SUPERIOR PID LIKE THE AUBER, GIVES YOU CONSISTENT AND POWERFUL STEAM PRESSURE WHICH IS ESSENTIAL IF YOU ARE INTO YOUR LATTES OR FLAT WHITES ETC. WITH THIS MACHINE COMING FROM THE BEST PRIOD OF GAGGIA PRODUCTION(2002-2004) IT HAS THE MORE POWERFUL INVENSYS PUMP, ESSENTIAL IF YOU WANT TO ADD A DIMMER SWITCH. THE STEAM VALVE/OPV/SOLENOID VALVE ARE ALL BRASS, AND THE PRESSURE IS SET AT THE REQUIRED 9 BAR, BUT CAN BE SET EVEN LOWER ACCORDING TO TASTE. A BRAND NEW RANCILIO MK2 STEAM WAND HAS BEEN FITTED TO ENABLE PROPER STRETCHING OF YOUR MILK TO CREATE LATTE ART(I’m not very good I’m afraid)!. A BLUE CAFELAT SILICONE HEAD GASKET IS FITTED ALONGSIDE A SOLID BRASS FILTER HOLDER TO HELP MAINTAIN TEMP AT THE BREW HEAD; AN IMS PROFESSIONAL SCREEN FILTER IS ALSO INCLUDED. SO UPGRADES AND EXTRAS AS FOLLOWS:- ORIG 58mm DATE STAMPED TWIN SPOUT P/F. A NAKED OR BOTTOMLESS P/F WITH TRIPLE SHOT BASKET. ORIG DOUBLE COFFEE BASKET AND AN ORIG SINGLE COFFEE BASKET. A BRAND NEW CAFELAT BLANK FLUSHING BASKET. AN ITM PRESSURE GAUGE WITH FITTINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR EDESIA GAUGE. A NEW RANCILIO MK2 SINGLE HOLE STEAM WAND. A BRITISH CRAFTSMAN MADE SOLID OAK STEAM KNOB WITH GRUB SCREW AND ALLEN KEY(this is so much nicer than the horrible black plasticky thing). THE OEM KNOB AS ABOVE. A SACHET OF PULY DESCALER TO START YOU OFF. 240v MAINS LEAD. IT WILL ALSO COME WITH AN EXTRA LONG EXHAUST TUBE TO ELIMINATE SPLASH BACK INTO THE DRIP TRAY. OK I THINK THATS IT. IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT THIS MACHINE IS IN EXCELLENT ORDER BOTH COSMETICALLY AND FUNCTIONALLY. IT HAS BEEN RUN ONLY WITH BOTTLED WATER AND HAS MADE ME THE MOST OUSTANDING ESPRESSOS AND LONG BLACKS WITH THE OCCASIONAL LATTE FOR YEARS. IT WANTS FOR NOTHING SAVE A DECENT BURR GRINDER AND SOME NICE FRESH BEANS!! I WILL NOT COURIER THIS MACHINE!! TOO MANY OF MY TOTALLY REBUILT MACHINES HAVE BEEN DAMAGED BY SOME DELIVERY CHAP WHOSE OBVIOUSLY PLAYED RUGBY WITH THE PARCELS!! I WILL HOWEVER DELIVER WITHIN AN ACCEPTABLE RADIUS OF MID STAFFORDSHIRE; OR MEET HALF WAY WITH A BIT TOWARDS FUEL. YOU ARE ALSO WELCOME TO HAVE A BREW FROM IT SHOULD YOU COLLECT!! AS THIS IS MY OWN PRECIOUS MACHINE ITS NOT GOING ON EBAY. SELLING ON HERE TO ANOTHER COFFEE ENTHUSIAST. NB. Please note the MOTTA tamp has already been sold and is NOT included in the sale.

  11. View Advert GAGGIA CLASSIC 1425w 2003 REBUILT/UPGRADED. HELLO ALL; NORMALLY SELL MY MACHINES ON EBAY BUT BEING A FORUM MEMBER THOUGHT I’D GIVE THE FORUM A WHIRL!

    HELLO ALL; NORMALLY SELL MY MACHINES ON EBAY BUT BEING A FORUM MEMBER THOUGHT I’D GIVE THE FORUM A WHIRL! THIS IS A STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL AUGUST 2003 MACHINE, THE PERIOD WHERE POSSIBLY THE BEST CLASSICS CAME OUT OF THE GAGGIA FACTORY(2002-2004).THE REASONING FOR THIS IS THE CABINETS WERE MADE OF THICKER GAUGE S/S, INSTEAD OF THE MILD STEEL CASINGS OF PREVIOUS MACHINES WHICH TENDED TO RUST AROUND THE DRIP TRAY AND INNER SHELF. THE BOILERS WERE 1425w SO QUICKER WARM UPS, THE INTERNALS WERE ALL BRASS INCLUDING THE STEAM VALVE ; IT HAS THE LARGER PARKER OR OLAB SOLENOID VALVE/COIL, THE PUMP IS THE MUCH BETTER 65w INVENSYS(essential when using a dimmer switch), AND THE OPV IS INFINITELY ADJUSTABLE WITHOUT THE NEED FOR SPRINGS ETC. THIS MACHINE HAS HAD A COMPLETE STRIP DOWN AND TOTAL REBUILD FROM CHASSIS UP. THE BOILER WHEN SPLIT WAS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH LITTLE SIGNS OF SCALE; HOWEVER WHAT SCALE EXISTED HAS BEEN CAREFULLY REMOVED MANUALLY WITH A DREMEL, CLEANED WITH A NEW GASKET FITTED AND REASSEMBLED WITH NEW BOLTS. ALL THE INTERNALS HAVE BEEN THROUGHLY CLEANED AND POLISHED BEFORE REASSEMBLY WITH NEW O RINGS WHERE NEEDED. THE OPV HAS BEEN MODDED TO 9/10 BAR; A BRAND NEW SILICONE BLUE GROUP GASKET HAS BEEN FITTED WHICH WILL NOT CRACK AND BECOME BRITTLE AND IS MORE HYGIENIC; A NEW RANCILIO MK2 SINGLE HOLE STEAM WAND HAS BEEN FITTED TO ENABLE PROPER STRETCHING OF YOUR MILK FOR LATTES/CAPPUCCINOS ETC, AND A NEW CAFELAT BLANK BACKFLUSHING BASKET IS INCLUDED. THIS MACHINE IS NOW RUNNING JUST HAS IT SHOULD WITH NO ISSUES. ALL THIS MACHINE NEEDS IS A GOOD BURR GRINDER AND SOME NICE FRESH BEANS TO GET THE BEST OUT OF HER! I HAVE ALSO INCLUDED ONE OF MY BEAUTIFUL SOLID WOOD STEAM KNOBS, WHICH I THINK REALLY COMPLIMENT THE CLASSIC, AND HAVE A MUCH NICER FEEL THAN THE OEM PLASTIC KNOB ALTHOUGH THIS IS ALSO INCLUDED. SO COMES WITH:- THE ORIGINAL DATE STAMPED 58mm P.FILTER. A DOUBLE UNPRESSURISED COFFEE BASKET. A SINGLE UNPRESSURISED BASKET. A NEW CAFELAT BLANK BASKET FOR BACKFLUSHING. THE ORIGINAL USER MANUAL. ORIG OEM PLASTIC SCOOP AND TAMPER. A NEW SOLID OAK STEAM KNOB WITH FITTINGS. A SACHET OF PULY CLEANER FOR YOUR FIRST DESCALE. THE REMOVED PANERELLO WAND AND FITTINGS. 240v MAINS LEAD. THIS IS NOW A PROPER ENTHUSIASTS MACHINE. DESCALED REGULARY AND BACKFLUSHED WEEKLY WILL LAST A LIFETIME. ALL PARTS ARE SERVICABLE AND IT IS A TESTAMENT THAT THIS MACHINE IS NEARLLY 20 YRS OLD AND IS STILL PRODUCING TOP QUALITY ESPRESSO. PREFER COLLECTION STAFFORDSHIRE AREA, BUT WILL COURIER AT £15 DHL NEXT DAY. FROM A VERY CLEAN NON SMOKING HOME, AND SANITISED FOR YOUR SAFETY.
