  1. Hmm! I’m actually on quite a tight budget... looking at the GC2019 or MAX RS2020. What do you think abt the Lelit PL42TEM that has a PID and Pressure Guage?
  2. Hey guys! I'm considering between a brand new espresso machine- Gaggia Classic Pro 2019 OR Rancilio Silvia V6 2020 Any significant benefits to take a Rancilio Silvia? I've always been a Gaggia Classic 2015 user. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hey guys! Would an 18g Ridge VST basket fit the 2015 stock Gaggia Classic spouted portafilter? Will it significantly make any difference in flavor and taste compared to the standard basket? Thank you!
  4. Hey guys! im looking at these 3 grinders which are about the same 1) Eureka Mignon Manuale (the new manual version) 2) Macap M2M 3) Compak K3 any recommendations? Thank you!
  5. Hmm! Haha okay I’ll work the grinder. Looking at an eureka manuale now. Will it make a lot of diff to change from the GC 2015 to 2019 model?
  6. Just curious... When we say.... ——— does 15g output weight 30g in 30s ——— Because I’m doing a double shot, so I need to have two shot glasses to take the flow from each spout of the portafilter. Should each glass be 30g output? (Ie. total output for 30g ground is 60g espresso) or does it mean, both spouts flow into 1 cup, and the total output from both spouts should be 30g from 15g grounds? thank you!
  7. I feel I can’t get the consistency with the 2015 Gaggia Classic, especially now that I’ve started weighing it. Just thinking of getting a 2019 Gaggia classic and a PID. I know I can get a pre 2015, but I really don’t know the condition. So I thought a new 2019 Gaggia classic would be safer.
  8. Hi all! I'm currently using a Gaggia Classic 2015 with a Gaggia MDF Grinder. I’m looking to upgrade to something about Gaggia Classic price range or slightly higher? I’m also looking to get the Eureka Mignon Instanteneo (Mk2). Need your help to recommend a good coffee machine? Or should I just get Gaggia Classic Pro 2019?
  9. One question, will the PTFE Tape breakdown and get into the grinds on the longer term?
  10. Yup! No leak at 4,5,6 settings. However, at setting 4, the flow was faster. I could try to tamp 16g harder at setting 4? Would that slow the flow down?
  11. Yeah! I took out the gasket, cleaned the inside till there’s no coffee stains or powder. Looks perfect. Then inserted one of the two new gaskets I ordered from gaggiadirect (specifically for my model). I thought it was the installation problem, then I replaced it with the 2nd gasket after a few days and after cleaning it as well. could it really be that the grounds are too fine at 3? At 4, it flows ok
  12. I'm using a scale up to 0.1. I used the same grammage- 16g. This time I tamped a little. But it still chokes. I noticed that my machine doesn't choke from Gaggia MDF Setting 4 and above. This process i roughly got about 35g (started at -0.9g), espresso in 33s. (stopped too late) One possibility is I reduce the grammage to 15.5g to solve the leak? Here's the videos: My process Portafilter Leak angle 2
  13. Hey guys! I have been using the Gaggia MDF for about 2 years now. I have not done the stepless modification. I have been reading that the 2018 Macap M2M (with the new worm-adjustment) that is stepless is quite good at its price point. Do you guys think it's a good upgrade? I'm heading to Australia, so i'm thinking of buying the Macap M2M there. Or should i just make my Gaggia MDF stepless and save the money?
  14. Okay got it! But how do you keep the portafilter from choking/leaking ? I just changed the gasket so it’s new. Only happens when I use setting 3 (I have not tried 1 or 2 yet)
