5.0 out of 5 stars
Very good espresso maker, 24 Dec. 2012
I upgraded from my first machine, a DeLonghi with pressurized filter. The espresso that I make with the Gaggia cannot even be compared with what I was making before! With a selected, freshly-grinded coffee the result is better than what I get in most coffee shops but there is a big difference with commercial supermarket brands as well. They all tasted the same with the DeLonghi, but now I can finally tell which ones I like better. I regret not having bought a Gaggia Baby from the beginning.
The only drawback I can mention is that the on/off button is at the back, which often makes me forget to turn it off after I make an espresso in the morning before going to work.
For the price I bought it (100 pounds, best offer ever), I can't rate it with anything less than 5 stars.
