Very good product by a good name that does the job better than most, at an affordable price.
Positive Product Points
This product has served me WELL for almost six years. Solid build and even better results.
Negative Product Points
Looks leave a little to be desired. Just makes you want cooler stuff like more steam volume or taped in water supply.
This is the only machine I own for use at home. I have looked into buying something newer but I always end of looking back at the Gaggia and not being able to justify the cost of a new machine, because it brews one dam good cup of coffee.
The build is solid but the looks arn't that great. I've never had a problem with the machine. The plastik adapter for the steam wand is useless because with it you always end up foamming the milk way more than heating it. It takes a while to do your milk but it is a home machine.
I can not remember the specific name of the store in Seattle where I purchased this Coffee Gaggia. But I didn't go there to shop, I knew what I wanted at the time and this vendor had both black and white to chose from. I got black.
