Hi everyone. What a great source of information! So my current gear is a Gaggia Classic (like a lot of you on here) and I've got an Ascado i-mini grinder. I'm always a sucker for a bargain so generally buy everything 2nd hand and as cheap as possible. Gaggia I bought for £30 with a blocked solenoid valve and took it all apart to find out what the problem was and the i-mini I found on gumtree for £80. Really trying to get my coffee closer to that of the coffee shops I spend too much time in. Coffee is freshly roasted and stored in a vaccum jar and put into the grinder 18g at a time. Pull a shot with a 2:1 brew ratio in around 30 seconds but my setup lacks consistency despite me weighing every step of the way and temp surfing. Gaggia runs out of steam with the silvia wand before it can get a good swirl going so latte art is generally terrible. Really looking to upgrade for around £1000 spending. The best gear for the money. Found the Fracino gear through this site and am in love with the Ariete with the wooden handles but can't find it 2nd hand anywhere. Looking for a HX machine manual fill with good looks and stable temperatures. Cherub perhaps? Looking for a grinder again with good looks and small size. Anyone know much about a La spaziale astro 8A? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
