Detailed Commentary

I love my Gaggia Classic Coffee. I bought it in 1999, and 15 years later it still makes beautiful espresso with beautiful crema.
I'm very pleased with how it has performed. It heats up in 3 minutes - and though I know how the Rancilio people love to berate this machine, I'm happy I don't have to wait 20 minutes for the machine to heat up in the morning. This was one of the first machines to have a backwash ability, which is probably why it has lasted so long.  It has been used consistently and daily during the last 15 years, in hardwater and softwater areas. It's been all over the place. Great machine. Thanks Gaggia!

Buying Experience

This was my first machine. It would be nice if it were also my last!
