Other than that, once you've mastered how much to compact the coffee in the brewing head in order to produce a nice cream on top, the machine is very good.
The other thing I was a bit disappointed with was the fact that Amazon did not mention the colour of the machine. On the picture it looked like the black Gaggia Evolution, but when I received it - it turned out to be the GREY one. The grey is dark, almost black, but not good enough if all your kitchen appliances are black and chrome. However, I decided to keep it because I couldn't be bothered to send it back all at my expense.
Hope my experience would be of help.
On arrival, I unpacked the machine and was initially very impressed. Gaggia UK had put a service contact number sticker on the back, a nice touch I thought. However, I noticed that the case did not fit properly at the top back of the machine, something wasn't clipped in correctly inside. I actually had to open the machine up and bend a plastic clip back into position inside to get the case to fit properly, it wasn't a major issue, but their quality control can't be up to much if that got though, as I spotted it right away.
The general feel of the machine is quite nice, reasonable quality bearing in mind the price. Nothing felt cheap or shabby, but you canï¿½t expect solid stainless steel either. Overall, a nice machine.
The looks are good however, very nice, but that may be a personal taste thing. The black plastic casing is actually like a metallic paint finish on a car, black with silver speckles in it, nice. It looks simple, not fussy, which I like.
The user manual. Good luck, itï¿½s awful. Takes a few reads to know what to do and even then I wasnï¿½t totally sure. Iï¿½m no fool, but it had me scratching my head. However, essentially the machine is very easy to use, once mastered.
The water tank. A bit fiddly to take out but does look nice. Manual recommends using filtered or purified water to prevent scaling inside the machine. Personally, using bottled or filtered water is one extra hassle/expense too far. Iï¿½m sure it would improve the taste of the coffee and extend the life of the machine, but I just canï¿½t be bothered. Itï¿½s already quite a lot of effort making coffee with the machine anyway.

Just bought this so my rating is provisional. The only thing is that it no longer comes with the Perfect Crema Device. Result- little or no crema. Really disappointing. Read morePublished on 14 Jan. 2007 by Suz
