Delighted to have discovered the Forum after three years living with a Gaggia Classic and an associated frother problem. I have always used Illy Espresso - great quality and a bargain buy at Costco. But, they no longer stock it and at £5.66 a tin from the supermarkets out of my price league. All alternative recommendations gratefully received. New Year's resolution - to descale more often!

Welcome Peppers

 

Do you have a grinder (or are you planning on buying a grinder?)

If not, then a number of UK roasters sell their beans pre-ground, with prices starting from as low as £3 for a 250g bag (plus postage)

 

A quick search on the forum will reveal a number of threads containing their details.

Much appreciate the reply and advice. You are obviously an enthusiast - do you have any recommendations that come close to Illy quality and, yes, I do have a Braun grinder although I'm not so sure that it will produce a fine enough product for my machine.
