  1. Awesome news! how come no one here mentioned this solution! I'm just waiting for my pressure gauge to arrive so I can start cutting down some rings! one more question, are these spring can be bought separately if I mess mine up ? or maybe if I decide to have multiple springs to switch between multiple pressure settings
  2. Hello Two months ago I got my first espresso machine and it is the Gaggia Classic 2019 RI9480/11, And it was a let down for me to know that there's no way to lower the factory default bar pressure of ~14 bars, Then I stumbled upon this Bulgarian fellow showing how he managed to lower the bar pressure by shortening a spring inside of the OPV, and he explained it very well with pictures and videos here: https://coffeeforums.bg/viewtopic.php?t=97 I googled around for someone else who has tried the same solution and I couldn't find any, even here, so I wanted to ask before trying it myself, because it is irreversible. I don't speak Bulgarian and I used google translator, but it failed to translate the whole page since it includes some weird HTML tags (I suppose) so here's a rough translation of the post (refer to the original post for pictures + videos)
