Summary: We have owned this machine for a long time. I would buy nothing else. I've tried cheaper, more expensive and comparably priced devices. Nothing compares. My husband brags to everyone that he makes "the world's best cup of coffee," and it's true. The 12300 is his secret.
Summary: Wow they have made the machine much more streamlined sine my original machine maybe 10 years old. I learned my lesson and will use the tamper and run lean water through much more frequently. When reading the troubleshooting gude i realized what had gone wrong with my old machine.

Summary: I was advised that for something I used every day, even for one cup of good coffee, I shoud get a quality machine. This is perfectly that. My barista son approved, and gave me some tips for best extraction, how to properly use my burr grinder, and I roast my own coffee so it's my top o' the morning...
Summary: poor quality. Machine has zinc pest due to poor manufacturing quality. It's a pity because the machine makes great coffee. Baby Gaggia's used to last 20 years, the paint on mine came off after a year, it looks terrible now.
Summary: I've had for 2 months now and I am very happy with the machine. Replaced a Saeco that I wore out after 6 years. Like the form of this machine. As would be expected, there are a couple things I think could be improved.

Summary: I've had the Gaggia Baby Class about a month and so far so good. Initially I was curious how much of an upgrade this would be from my Saeco Poemia, another concern was that the Gaggia is shipped from Italy and I couldn't find it in any stores to check out.

Summary: I used Gaga when I live in Italy. I was hoping it primed the coffee to give you a richer thicker head but it doesn't. You can do it manually. Overall a great machine. The steamer for frothing to make cappuccino rocks. Best I've seen. Has a lot of pressure.
