Welcome to all new members who have received a Gaggia Classic as a gift for Christmas or who have bought one to replace an old coffee machine


If you have tried to use it and ended up with little jets of coffee everywhere (up the walls, all over the bench etc) then it is likely that you are using the Pressurised Portafilter Basket that comes standard with new Gaggia Classics


We have recently had a few enquiries from members with this problem and in all cases have solved this by purchasing a new standard basket for the machine


The new baskets replace the pressurised basket (remove the basket and insert the new one) and then tamp the coffee as you normally would


The coffee should then disperse evenly through the bottom of the portafilter into the spouts and straight into the cup (and not all over the walls)


A quick search of this forum should throw up several answers to this problem but feel free to start a thread for further discussion


Pictures or video is also helpful
