Detailed Commentary

I have been looking for a good companion to my LP for a while now.  Was eyeballing a Sylvia and Gaggia Classic when this came up for sale locally.  After reading what people thought here I decided to pull the trigger.  This is a well built, straight-forward machine that pulls fantastic shots and makes great froth.  I was stunned by the strength of the steam compared with my previous machines.  The warming tray is large, the portafilters are very well made, it is very easy to clean and maintain and, did I mention, it makes amazing espresso.   As others have mentioned, the case is plastic and not aesthetically the nicest but at least mine is grey and looks metalloid.  Not a big concern for me and franlly it cleans up in  a jiffy.

Buying Experience

great local vendor
