Hello from Scotland

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Recently joined the forum after reading loads of posts following internet searches taking me here so decided that I should really become a member. Maybe some of you experienced fellows can help me too. I spotted a 2015 mk2 Gaggia Classic-the one with the push buttons and no solenoid valve, locally. I have heard that this is not really a model to go for but the price is good £120. 

Will I just be giving myself a bit of a headache if I go ahead and buy it? Should I just look for a pre 2015 model instead? I know they are going for quite a bit more than £120!! Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi Like Medium Strong Coffee

Thanks for the tips there. I had a look at the sales section and there are indeed some interesting machines there. It's a bit tricky trying to work out what's best in the Gaggia Classic line up of models and years. Hopefully I will get there eventually!

Thanks for the tips there Dallah. I have managed to source a Gaggia Classic and Sage smart grinder pro from the Gaggia Facebook group since I last posted. It was just luck really. A guy posted that he had dug out his Gaggia classic and was wondering how much it is worth as he has had a higher end machine for a little while. I jumped on board and bought it together with his Sage grinder! 

Obviously in the future I may well be looking for things on here too. I currently have a Delonghi bean to cup machine which can produce some very nice coffee but there are times it just produces mediocre coffee-hence the Gaggia classic purchase!
