The only thing i don't like is the noise of the grinder or tamp
17 January 2016
Summary: Not sure when i bought mine (+8years) but I have not had any issues with mine. I just checked and I have a little shy of 13k shots of coffee on mine. The only thing i don't like is the noise of the grinder or tamp. my friends Jura 9 is quieter. It still makes a great cup of coffee crema to this day.
Summary: Just received a new Titanium last night; filled with non-oily (light roast) beans, and the unit grinds for ~45 seconds then says out of beans without making a coffee. WT...??? After 5-6 attempts, I discovered that the ground beans get stuck above the brew unit; A little door/hatch above the brew...
Summary: I bought this machine for a much higher price from a vendor in New England about 7 years ago. I researched many machines before deciding to upgrade my manual espresso maker from Starbucks and landed on this one.
I had it serviced a couple of years ago but other than that it's been perfect. A real workhorse

Summary: I had one of the original Titaniums which I purchased back in 2005 for around $1,400. It's served ~20,000 espressos over the years. I had it serviced a couple of years ago but other than that it's been perfect. A real workhorse.
Summary: The good news is as consumers we have an outlet now to write reviews on products and services we receive. As a consumer today I am writing a review about the Gaggia Titanium Espresso Silver SKU: 9754165 that I purchased from Best Buy on January 2, 2014 for roughly $900.
I've had this machine for 4 years now and still love it. Yes, it's temperamental.

Summary: After I sold my coffeehouse I really wanted to get a serious but not crazy expensive espresso machine for home use. Home machines cannot compare to professional machines, so don't get your hopes up.
Summary: I've owned this espresso maker for over five years. It's very consistent and reliable. You just need to clean the brew group under hot water once a week. The steamer takes about 15 seconds to prime and in the process wastes a bit of water before turning into steam.
Summary: Today I lost my temper with this unreliable machine. I purchased a refurbished Gaggia Titanium less than 12 months ago but cruelly more than 6 months ago - during this time the machine had to go back to Whole Latte Love twice.
