Positive Product Points

Ectualy, I have Gaggia Baby Class. Just bought it. Very good mashine, good look, solid, make great Capuccino, but...

Negative Product Points

I have promlems with the creama. There is not enough of it. I used o have a Breville "Caffee Roma", cost - $200, and it was making great esspresso, with planty of beautiful foam (creama). Gaggia Baby makes great tasting esspresso, but unfortunately very little creama barely covering the top of the coffee. I tried different grind, different amount of ground coffee ( mashine doesn't take a lot of it), different coffee holder cup, but resalt is the same - very little creama in my cup. Any recomandations please?? I appreciate the help. Enjoy coffee everybody. Cheers

Detailed Commentary

This is my first espresso and only machine and I have to say it's very easy to use, easy to clean and requires very little maintenance.  There are some things you buy in life that you look back on and think - good decision, i'm so glad i bought that and this it in my top 3!
It is uncomplicated, has an understated quality look and feels solid.
It's also the right price for a serious coffee lover like me - the better models with brass boilers were just too expensive to justify and I am happy with my decision.
The brewhead is substantial, weighty and hasn't chipped or got damaged.
I give it a full clean and descale every 6 months .

Buying Experience

Bought it from "Bad, bath..." Good deal, good price, speedy delivery
