I've got a Gaggia Classic that I've had for about 10 years I guess... still going strong and being used for a handful of shots every day. I've modded it slightly (pressure reduction mod, and silvia steam wand) but am now thinking that I might treat myself to something newer and better... So - any thoughts? I've got just under 18" of worktop height, which any new machine MUST fit under, and I guess around 10" or so of width (so single group) - and it needs to use tanked water and a standard 13A wall socket... so serious commercial stuff is out (this time ). Just to complete the picture, sat next to my Classic is a Mazzer SJ (sans hopper, so it fits into the 18" of height!) and my lovely wife bought me an Espro tamper for Christmas (so ideally any new machine should use 58mm portafilters - otherwise I'm right in the mire!). I only drink espresso.... though on the odd occasion that I prepare latte and cappucinos for people I'd like quick and easy access to a good steam wand... Budget....? Don't really care... (ideally Any and all help or advice appreciated. The choice is huge, but I'm not really sure what to even start looking at... Many thanks Shades PS The Rancilio Epoca ST1 looks ideal.... but it's just slightly too tall at about 19"! Damn thing...
