Subject: Used Gaggia Baby Twin
 

Hello, I am new to the forum as well as to wanting an espresso machine and have never owned one.  I have never had a Latte or Cappuccino but had Americano on a cruise that I had taken recently.  I am not that fussy about my coffee but do like a good cup.  My question is that I think I am in the market for a used espresso machine and have one in mind but do not know if this is a good deal and one that would be good for a new person.  The machine is a Gaggia Baby Twin going for $250.  I have seen review on the machine but they range from people who love them to people that state that it leaks and breaks quickly and state that the steam pressure is a joke.  I know that I will need a good grinder but do not want to invest in one at this time.  So I guess I would like to know if this is a good/great deal and if so is it a good machine for a beginner.  Any help would be great appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Pease read the following links then ask your questions.


"How to Buy an Espresso Machine"
"First machine - 300-400$"
"For $200-$300 price range is the Gaggia Espresso Pure the best choice?"
"Decent Espresso Machines for $300"

Twins are prone to leak.  See Partsguru comment.
