I spend way too much money at the coffee shop and I want to buy a fully automatic model (which grinds the beans for you and makes your espresso with the push of a button).
I looked at several models online but there aren’t any testimonies from people who actually own these machines. Does anyone out there own a Gaggia or any similar brand they would recommend? Thanks!

If you’re looking for a lower cost, I’d suggest buying a decent burr grinder seperately. One that has a hopper and grinds at a push of the button — without holding the button down.

Here are a couple of links to check out. Krups and Gaggia both makes some good machines.

Krups XP4050 Coffee maker?

by admin on October 7, 2010

A was thinking of buying this make/model for a friend. I am not well up on coffee so need some advise. Does anyone have one and if they do are they any good and how does it compare to a Gaggia?

It’s a very good coffee maker and yes, I would compare it to Gaggia.
That’s a nice gift! ;o)

Gaggia Classic, weak pump? (solved)

October 6, 2010

Yesterday my Gaggia Classic began to sound different as I made my espresso shots. The sound you hear uccurs when the espresso is made ristretto style, meaning the pump gets to work a little bit harder, but coffee normally begins to pour within 5 seconds.
