  1. The porlex produces a good quality grind and will go fine enough for espresso. My main gripes were the adjustements wide so sometimes just couldn't get it right for a particular bean and after a while it does become a drag to hand grind.

  5. Hi, Which size for standard gaggia classic double basket? Is the 58.4 designed for VST basket and will it be too snug for the standard basket? thanks
  6. ordered beans yesterday (first time user) and arrived this morning. Packet states only roasted yesterday too..that's fresh!
  7. I've just bought some Sainsbury's Tanzanian moshi peaberry beans (taste the difference range) and they are pretty good!
  8. Thanks for comments/advice. I've now got a Porlex ceramic hand grinder and 25 second shots are no problem. I'm really impressed with the porlex performance. ..produces very good,consistent grinds. It's so easy to use too, the bean holder section has an inner sleeve which marks the amount needed for a double shot. It's mess free too as the cyclindrical container can be 'knocked' or shaken to reduce any clumps and it fits inside the portafilter for an easy transfer. I love the gaggia classic too. Warm up times are a lot quicker than expected and I swapped the frother for the one shown here: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=1195559137727 and using the inner as shown in the video I'm getting some nice, thick microfoam. Together the Porlex and the Classic are producing excellent coffee and for £280 new (£250 classic and £30 porlex) I think it's pretty good value too!
  9. Yep, thanks to this forum I became aware of the pressurised basket issue and asked the shop to swap them when I bought it, which they happily did (thanks Gaggia uk at Elland ). For some reason I get a much slower shot with the single basket but a gusher with the double, even though the preparation is identical.
  10. Hi, does anyone know if new gaggia classics have a high brew pressure as the factory setting. I'm having trouble getting a 20-25 sec shot, despite some heavy tamping and a fine grind. I'm wondering if the factory setting has been increased recently in line with gaggia now supplying pressurised baskets only. I've just got a new classic and the shop swopped the baskets so I'm using the non-pressurised ones. I read some posts suggesting some are as high as 11 bar and that reducing the OPV makes a big difference. Before I start tinkering I wondered if any knew for sure whether classics are 11 bar (ish) by default. thanks ps I'm currentky using the gaggia pre-ground coffee (until my grinder arrives). It seems pretty fine but this could also be contributing to the fast flow rate although I'm tamping as hard as I can!
  11. I think £300 was a lot for the particular machine this thread was referring to. Your £300 got you the latest version and a base so yours seems a pretty good deal.
  12. I agree, worth the extra £100 for brand new, latest version with 2 yr guarantee. According to the seller it was 3rd hand at least.
  13. Hi, comparing a few machines and the Silvia and Classic both seem to be very praised machines. Classic is £200 cheaper but the only concern I have is the aluminium boiler. I've heard this is prone to corrosion (as it's coupled to the brass brew head) particularly in soft water areas, which I live in. Anyone have any experience of this either way? Also, other than the boiler, the Gaggia classic seems to pretty much match the Silvia (except for frothing) but is a heck of a lot cheaper. Are there any significant differences in performance? thanks
  14. Come across the ascaso arc stainless steel at fairfax for £199. Macine specs look really good: brass boiler & brewhead plus solenoid valve (I think). Anybody have opinions on this machine or Fairfax? I was looking at a Silvia, but for £200 less, this seems a very good machine. Fair fax also has a La Pavoni at £335, which again seems a good price/machine. Thoughts/opinions welcome! thanks
  15. Hi Glen, can I purchase from Hasbean at the moment then, or wait till Steve returns from travelling?
