Posted Mon Sep 2, 2013, 3:04am Subject: Returning from an auto machine, will a Gaggia MM do?
I used to have semi-auto machines for a long while, and used a variety of OK Gaggias (last I had was a Tebe) and with that I had a Gaggia MM grinder, which i still have (well a friend has been using it but i can reclaim it). I then moved around a lot and ended up with an super-auto Gaggia, that to be fair did pretty well and was of course very convenient. It died and now I am looking at going back to something a bit more hands on, but i wondered if a Gaggia MM was going to be realistically good enough to go with a decent quality semi-auto machine?
Obviously this affects my budget, if i need a new grinder too i can spend less on a machine. On the other hand if the MM will do for a while i can get a better machine and upgrade the grinder later.
Machine-wise I was looking at the £1000 range i guess, so a grinder to suit that.
