Great machine. Amazon sent TWO defective returned ones

Summary: I am familiar with this machine and got a wonderful deal on a refurbished one from the national servicer for Gaggia, Whole Latte Love (WLL). I wanted another refurbished one, WLL was out of stock, so I bought a total of two used on Amazon.
Summary: This is singlehandedly the best espresso machine for this price range... Ive done the OCD researching for you! Positives: The Gaggia New Baby has all the internals of its big brother, the Classic - only exception is an ABS plastic shell. The brewhead and portafilter are plated brass.
Summary: Purchased this machine with high hopes. It is horrible - I sent it back to the manufacturer twice within the first two months. It is now a year old and totally broken. The manufacturer will not honor the two year warranty because I don't have the original receipt, even though the product is...
Summary: This machine is a very good starter machine and the guts of the machine are the exact same as the highly regarded Gaggia Classic. That is why I paid as much for the Rocky grinder as the Gaggia espresso machine.
Summary: I was extremely disappointed with this machine. I received the machine and began to set it up. When I went to run the water through once, which is one of the first steps, it started pouring water out of every crack of the machine. I put it away and let my husband make sure I was doing it wrong.
Summary: I have owned several Espresso machines. I bought the Gaggia Baby 2 1/2 years ago. The first year it was awesome. Very good espresso, and nice thick foam. The second year leaks started to develop. Then the push button kept sticking when I made the espresso. Now I have to hold in the button.
Summary: I bought this to replace my older Baby Gaggia, which I used almost every day for 4 years. This machine makes the best cup of cappuccino; Gaggia has introduced a new crema perfetta filter, which produces an thick, rich, almost caramel-colored crema.
Summary: This is a great home machine! I love the commercial portafilter and there is enough steam power to make microfoam milk for latte art. While it is a simply machine to operate, it will take practice to make a proper shot of espresso and steam milk with the right consistency.
