  1. ..almost all my coffees taste almost identical in my Gaggia Classic. That is to say really pretty good, very good in fact in comparison to my mokapot, but, unlike my mokapot, there's very little difference in taste from one coffee bean to the next: for eg Ive just used some expensive Monmouth espresso beans and the shot tasted no different at all to my std fayre/ most days/ co-op cheapo espresso beans.. and these no different to shots from other beans either even if a milder roast: all taste consistantly good, same crema. I am talking cappucino/ 1/3rd milk ish so there's obviously going to be

  5. As per the title, for sale here is a Gaggia Classic (pre-Phillips takeover) in very good condition. Work done this week: Group head seal replaced Boiler seal replaced Boiler descaled OPV mod (OPV adjusted to 10 bar - ideal pressure for brewing espresso) Brand new Rancilio Silvia steam wand fitted - this is seen as a sensible & must-have upgrade for the Gaggia Classic to produce decent microfoam The chassis in in VGC, i've given it a quick polish with Brasso this evening - with a little more effort it will be spotless!
