  1. Those of you who saw my post in the new members section will know that I recently returned an Delonghi "Automatic" coffee machine as it was rubbish and ordered a Gaggia Classic and MC2 grinder. Well, I spent an hour today dialling in my grinder and playing around with the Gaggia. I've just made my first "proper" coffee with the classic, an Americano with a double shot (24 seconds extraction time ) using Happy Donkey Brazilian beans. All I can say is, OMFG!!!!! How *good* does that taste! That is all.... Oh and big up to Happy Donkey (where I got my MC2 from) for bundling in 2 free bags off beans.
  2. Welcome! I'm a newbie too and have just taken delivery of a new Gaggia Classic. Looking to getting it fired up tomorrow.
  3. Welcome to the forum (from a fellow ex-lurker!)
  4. Thanks everyone for taking the P*** out of where I live! Anyway, old machine has been returned and a classic and MC2 are on their way!
  5. Looks like you've got to your magic 10 now! (and mines just gone up too )
  6. Thanks everyone. Classic has been ordered and I'm just off to to Happy Donkey for an MC2 - bring on the coffee!!!
  7. Thanks for the welcome. I can definitely send it back (got it from Amazon and they are very good on returns) so think I'll get the box back out and start packing. I've just noticed that I posted this in the wrong place (should be introductions) so I've re-posted over there. Good start to joining a new forum! Oops!
  8. Just thought I had better pop into the new members section, say hello and introduce myself! (And this time I'll post it in the right place!) I love coffee and I live in a small village called Wetwang that is in East Yorkshire. I've been using a Krups GVX2 until recently for making cafetiere coffee. However I've just bought myself a delonghi EC850 automatic machine for doing Espresso (well, Americano's really) and found that the GVX2 doesn't really work well enough for espresso. And so a Google search for a better grinder has brought me here! I think I may have been bitten by the good coffee bug (obsession???) and looks like I'll be ordering an MC2 very shortly. I think it also looks like I'll be sending back my Delonghi for a refund as reading on here I don't think I'm going to be happy with it. So, I think a Gaggia Classic purchase may also be on the cards (unless anyone thinks the Delonghi will be OK?)! Cheers.
