2 Gaggias Dead in 4 years

jnet, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: This is my 2nd Gaggia machine. The first was a slightly different model but operated and looked nearly the same (the red one). Both started dying after about 1.5 years. This one, purchased May of 2013, is now on it's last leg. Water is leaking out from area above the portafilter and my shots are muddy and awful (it use to make a decent-to-good crema).

Great budget machine

  • Summary: I've had this machine for several years now - I've lost track of exactly how long. I get consistently good results from it. Pros - Removable water tank, 3-way valve, good internals, commercial style portafilter and brew group. Makes consistent, quality espresso shots. Price. Not the nicest machine, but at this price, I don't think you can beat it. Cons - some parts feel cheap.

  • Summary: At $300.00 this is a fantastic machine. I roast my my own coffee and grind with a Rancilio rocky.

Good machine but use caution when cleaning.

Billy Ledford, Amazon

  • Summary: Makes a great Espresso. Fast. Simple to use.The reason i didn't give 5 stars is because of the use of so many small plastic parts. If one is not very, very careful they can easily be lost. Down the drain for instance as I found out with the filter pin. It does not seem possible to order these parts as separate items and the entire assembly of which they are a part must be ordered instead. Not a deal killer for me.

This machine is only fair in quality

Barry L. Chooljian, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: I think this machine is over rated. I should have been more skeptical in reading the praises of the baby Gaggia. My chief complaint is that my cup of expresso doesn't come out hot enough. I have tried over and over to improve the quality of my cup of expresso without much success. Overall, I am disappointed.

  • Summary: I'd love one of those $2000 machines, but will never buy one. So, for about $300 this is a pretty good machine.

Great machine if you can get a deal

  • Summary: If you are researching this machine, you have probably already read about its downfalls - mainly steam pressure. It is true that this machine's steam is on the weak side, but I would recommend this machine to anyone that wants a cheaper alternative to a double boiler or heat exchanger machine. I also have a Gaggia Classic with a PID. I really like it, but having to wait for the boiler to heat up to steam milk after brewing (or vice versa) was really getting to me.

Gaggia New Baby

yili guo, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • 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. The downside is the steam wand is really short(I don't use the enhancer) and it will clog if you use whole milk.

could be better

Mikeyguy, Amazon

  • 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. Then the solenoid valve stopped working. I cleaned the solenoid and it worked for 3 weeks but stopped working now. I have owned many machines.

Love it!

  • 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. I got rid of my regular coffee makers years ago, I've been spoiled by this machine to the point that I no longer buy cappuccino in restaurants or stores (except in Sicily!) because I'm always disappointed in the taste.
