Subject: Gaggia Classic Vs evolution
 

Hi,
thanks for having me here. so i used to have a delonghi and smart grinder. then i moved countries and now im settling in. So what i found out here that the espresso machines are kinda limited, so are the grinders.

Yes, the grinder is more important than the machine. so that is ill keep in my mind. when doing the purchase and budgeting.

I'm faced with a dilimma, i found the following with these prices.
Gaggia Classic : 800 USD
Gaggia Evolution: 500 USD
Silvia V3: 900 USD.

I'm tight on budget. so what is the best bang for my money.

1)  What kind of drinks do you like/want to make?
Espresso, maybe latte or cappuccino occasionally
2)  How many drinks, on average, do you see yourself needing to make at any one time?
one drink, max 2.
3)  How many drinks, on average, do you see yourself making in any given week?  
7-8 per week
4)  Can you plumb a machine directly into the water supply, or do you want/need a pour over machine with its own reservoir?
cant plumb
5)  Do you have a 20-amp circuit available, or only a (standard) 15-amp circuit?
no sure
6)  What is your budget for a new machine?  Does that also include a grinder?  If not, what is your budget for a grinder?
i still need to find the grinders they are selling here. but ill figure out the total budget later.
7)  Are you willing to buy used or do you need new equipment? Do you or family member have the skills to repair used equipment?
New
8)  Do you have the essential accessories (decent tamper, knockbox, the works), otherwise budget about $100 for these.
nope, but i guess ill get them.
