Gaggia G106/La Pavoni Professional


Recommended Posts

Can't remember the last time I added a thread in this section!

 

Been using a converted Gaggia Classic for many years (since around 2011 I believe) and still have it.

 

However a fortnight ago I was trawling eBay and came across a Gaggia G106, a machine I had the pleasure of owing a few years back. Apparently made in the same factory as the La Pavoni and is essentially a La Pav Professional with a tin man hat!

 

My coffee area is below, we bought our first house just over a year ago and the cupboard is my coffee and general storage area which is great as it's self contained and keeps the rest of the kitchen coffee-free.

Few pics of the machine below - will hopefully be upgrading the Ascaso grinder after getting married in April.

Got some new seals and group head items on order to give this the spring refresh that it needs - haven't used it since November! Should hopefully have it back up and running for the weekend :)

Hi, I’ve got one of these to sell but I’m afraid I don’t know it’s value at all...can anyone help please?

All depends on the condition of the chrome, the base and also any leaks/rust etc?
