Upgraditus

During your coffee making journey the urge to upgrade your equipment may strike you

 

The lists below act as a reference guide to popular machines owned on Coffee Forums UK in each category

 

It is important to note that not all machines are listed

 

These lists are biased towards espresso extraction

BLOODY HELL!

How many Mythos!? Have you had a Mythos One amongst that lot?

 

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't you have a GS/3 at one point?

I have only listed items I bought to keep as opposed to trying out. I have had a GS3 and a Vesuvius, and also a Versalab but did not keep them. Never had a mythos One as I am firmly of the opinion now that the levers are more suited to conicals. I will amend the list though as I do not have an L1 now but a Veloce

Has anyone started their journey with anything other than a Classic?:)

 

Sure have - Had such bad experience with Gaggias in my business I never wanted to look at them. More recently in past 8-9 years have been drawn towards a Classic which has given me more faith in Gaggia.
