      Disadvantages

      Fantastic machine

      Liven up your kitchen with this version of Gaggia's espresso machine in a deep shade of red which looks classy and stands out as a fine piece of kitchen equipment.

      This is ideal because these machines not only do ground coffee but coffee PODS/ Teabags whatever you would like to call them. There are a choice of three baskets for you to change in order to suit the ground.

      This is very easy to set up. All you need to do is fill the water tank and this last all da. Of course, it is more ideal to draw fresh water. I fill up the whole tank of water because it doesn't last long and can make up to 15 espresso's. With this, you can make a single espresso or a double if making for a friend or you need that extra shot!.
      If you are wanting to measure the perfect amount of espresso out and not an ounce more this will not add a single extra drop because of the anti-drip system installed.
      The steam arm produces exactly that steam but a tip to remember is to release the steam in an empty stainless steel jug first because 2-3 teaspoons of cold water or sometimes hot is released as is the slight build up of pressure produces and you don't want that to water down your coffee after all this effect!
      This delivers the best part extremely well by producing a golden, delicious and thick cream that seals your coffee and heat in nicely until your ready to drink.


      What is brilliant about Gaggia is they give you the whole experience by thinking of what you need before you do!

      Altohugh you can buy coffee market with 'this is ground for any machine' but it really is best to go for espresso ground coffee or if purchasing frehsly ground coffee from bean that let them know it s a machine not a pot as there is a slight difference, machine is more coarse and you don't want those pesky grinds coming through.
      If you decided to buy flavoured coffee grinds it is vital this is clean well possibly with Milton's steriliser because the grease from the oil of the favour tends to remain for the next coffee we unfortunately found out.

      Also, another great feature is the silver tray at the top is self-warming so you can warm your mugs or espresso glasses up being adding coffee, what a splendid idea!
      We found to separate the milk we use daily from the coffee milk to buy individual single pints and not open until we needed it to keep the milk as fresh as possible which really helps gives you an amazing froth for your cappuccino or hot choc! Yes my friends, add powder to the jug [prefeably stainless steel.] foam and steams the milk and would you believe it! Hot chocolate, gorgeous.

      This is currently £100 through Amazon and to get all that and a 2-year warranty is brilliant and the Gaggia website is pretty handy with great tips and advice for beginners or advanced coffee baristas.

      The paintwork is more durable than we expected as well, no scratches, or peeling in the overall appearance. Over two years it clean well and looked as good as when we first brought it but you need to maintain this and I would also recommend not using the Gaggia descaler as it doesn't seem as efficient as Milton's . x Enjoy x
