Searching for various brew techniques or querying issues on google more often than not let me here.

Coming back to here when I'm again stuck overhauling abused Gaggias, or now Le'Lit Combis. Initially some search engine sends me to the middle of some thread, and from there it's down the rabbit hole... (been lurking forever)

I drink about 6 to 8 espresso's per day. Went to Naples to visit my mum and I had some of their Cafe Garibaldi espresso. Tried my best to source some beans here in the UK( no joy with the usual online websites), this is how I came across the forum and how everything started.

I've been directed here from the LFGSS (cycling forum) coffee thread, primarily in answer to my question there about buying/selling, but I'm learning a lot already. I did have my hopes pinned on a barista express, then a Gaggia Classic, now I'm not even sure, but I'm pretty sure I probably want something more substantial/reliable for the grinder, quite possibly a Mignon, not sure about the machine, maybe a DTP, or a 2019 Classic if my budget can stretch.

Recommended by a colleague to the forum. I have bought a La Pavoni Europiccola, looking for a grinder to go next to it. Will update with details when I receive it. I also have a La Pavoni PUB 1 alongside an Ascaso Imini. Hopefully my Europiccola will be more fun!

found via Google - in search of interesting bits and bobs around the Gaggia Classic.

Currently in the middle of an overhaul of the whole machine - living as i do in a very hard water area

spent the weekend descaling - managed to get a superb shot of espresso out the very next day.  goes to show, a little work brings great rewards

Got the IMS brass showerhead and screen coming this week - looking forward to getting that fitted.

figure i may need to loosen up the grind a touch - getting some water feeding back into the main reservoir during brew..

I aim for the OPV to open when I pull a shot. Without fitting a manometer, it's the only way to know what pressure your shot is running at.

Ok so as I quietly suspected, nothing to concern myself with.  As it is I'll just coarsen the grind a fraction to help get the water through the coffee a little bit faster.  Having great fun learning :)
