  1. Hi, I have a secondhand Gaggia Classic that I have been brewing with for about 2 months without any problem. One day the pressure fell to only 3 bars, something I fixed by dismantling it and cleaning out the dispersion plate. The pressure is back to normal and I can brew a good cup with a bottomless portafilter. However, when I try using the standard portafilter it seems as if there is not enough pressure. I do not pack the coffee very hard (same pressure as before), but it can still take up to two minutes to get enough water through for an espresso. Any idea what the issue can be? Thanks
  2. Put it in vinegar over night and managed to get it loose prying it off with a screwdriver. Now its clean and pressure is back. Thanks
  3. It is acting if it is welded on. Are you sure this should be able to come off?
  4. Hi, I have taken apart my Gaggia Classic and I see that water is only coming out of one of the holes in the picture below. Is this normal? If not, what is the best way to unblock these? Thanks
  5. Drewster, Since you are breaking the machine, would you be able to send me the portafilter to use for gauge, the switches (one of mine is broken) and the lid for the water tank? Thanks!
  6. Could you please explain why it is so important with an unpressurised basket? tnx
  7. Central London. What is wrong with it?
  8. The chassis mainly. Looking for models that can be repaired.
  9. This is quite great if you use chrome translate plug-in.

  11. You can get them for 10, but always looking around for a better deal. That's why I posted here first
  12. Anyone selling a good bottomless naked portafilter that fits the Gaggia classic?
  13. Hi, looking to get some mods for my Gaggia classic. Anyone looking to sell their v1 v2 steam wand?
