  1. Can anyone help me?? Ive seen bottomless filter holders around and I'm curious as to what the beenfits of using them are as apose to the standard one with a pressurised basket in that i use with my gaggia classic. If anybody has one and thinks it creates a vastly better espresso i'd like to invest in one and if anyone knows the best one to get with a limited budget i would appreciate the help. They also look really cool when pulling a shot! Thanks.
  2. Dear all, Hello, I am finally back on track, after having a cup of cappuccino, I felt that the caffeine is working on me again. I am no longer immune to caffeine and I am a normal person now =D. But sadly, I was wondering what's wrong with my gaggia classic at the moment. If I remove the portafilter from the group head, the gasket tends to slide out of its supposed position when the machine has been warmed up. And sometimes, if I didn't lock my portafilter tight enough, there will be a leak of water during extraction from the side of the portafilter lids. Does this mean that I need to change my gasket? How frequent should I be changing my gasket? It has been 4 months since I have this machine and according to the seller, the gasket has been changed to a new one. And one more technique that I am still confused with. Doesn't gasket (rubber) harden when exposed to heat very frequently? And if I am to turn on the machine in the morning for a warm up, is it better to turn on the steam switch as well for a longer period of heat engagement within a short period of time? Or should I only be switching on the power button and let the machine warm up itself slowly one at a time? And while this warming up procedure is going on, is it wiser to leave the portafilter locked up in the group head or should I remove it and place it at a side? Advices needed please, I am still a novice although I have been trying hard for practice ever since the first day I got the whole setup, which is about 4 months ago. Thank you very much if you guys could help. =D
