This review is from: Gaggia Classic RI8161 Coffee Machine with Professional Filter Holder - Stainless Steel Body (Kitchen & Home)
I got one of these @ Xmas and after using it for a fortnight I can safely say it is one my most cherished and frequently used material objects!
First off it looks as good as it runs. Beautiful simplistic design. It's a wonderfully solid little machine, nuggety and robust design and build. The tip is to master the basics with it and the coffee you will get from it is outstanding. Give it a good 10 mins to warm up, tamp well, use freshly ground fresh coffee.
I find semi-skimmed milk works perfectly with the frother. Key is to leave the forther just submerged below the surface of the milk.
Buy one, you will wonder how you got buy without it!!
