Hi I have noticed something strange. When I make a coffee with the Gaggia classic + Compak K3, I feel sometimes lightheaded. This only happened when I did the coffee (based on 16g or 18g ground) with the Gaggia. My friend had the exact same experience but when I go to my fav cafe, it never happened there (and I go there often - I use the same beans they do and try to replicate their coffee/taste to enjoy at home during WEs).

I've already changed the shower head to a brass one but the water sits in the boiler and so is in contact with the aluminium for much longer. Let's be honest I've had my moments of brain glitches and I don't want to make it any worse.
