Bottom Line: Outstanding espresso, construction, and operation. Looks good too.
Positive Product Points

Absolutely outstanding espresso.
Reliable, solid operation, seems to be built like a tank.
Quieter than many.
After quick 5-6 minute warm up, can make back-to-back double shots of espresso.
Classic, professional appearance.
Oh, did I mention the wonderful espresso quality?

Negative Product Points

Question the operation of the "ready" indicator.
Not for those wanting "one-button" espresso.

Detailed Commentary

After the initial drops of espresso, the Gaggia Classic dispenses pure crema. It is a good value for a machine of this caliber. Because it gives you complete control over the espresso making process, it took a few weeks for me to begin producing good espresso. Now that I have refined my tamping skills and honed the grind fineness, outstanding espresso is guaranteed. The Gaggia MDF grinder is an excellent complement.
