What would be a good upgrade from a Gaggia Classic if I want to get more power for steaming? I already have the Silvia wand upgrade.

IMO, Fracino Cherub or better still Fracino Classico

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

I’m looking to “upgrade” to a machine from my drip/Aeropress and knock grinder. Is the Lelit Mara too much for my first machine? I’d be aiming for mostly milk based coffee

It was my first machine, had it for a couple of years before upgrading. Thoroughly recommend it.

Also my first.... make sure you get a grouphead thermometer with it.  Makes life much easier.

I borrowed one for a while but didn’t feel like I’d gained a lot in its use. 

In what way does it make life easier for you?

It has taken me a while to really get to grips with using the boiler pressure gauge on my lever to know when to pull the shot, but I am now finding this incredibly useful. Presumably the same with a temp gauge?

Helped me with knowing when to stop flushing so that I can get certain temperature while pulling my shots.  Taught me the dynamics of a HX.

I've got the chance to buy a secondhand Baratza Sette 270W from 01/2017 for 175€.

The seller says, that it was in repaired once 4 months after he purchased it (motor) and has been running without issues ever since - though, he has not used it in 9 months.

General usage included grinding 3x daily.

 

What do you guys think? Should I get it as an upgrade to my Mahlkönig Vario Home (v3)? I'd turn the Vario to a filter grinder then.
