    I know the one, Used to own one. Biggest problem with it is the boiler size... and no 3way valve....

    Hi Janine

    The Gaggia is a great little machine imho - simple to operate and work on, though the panorella on the end of the steam arm is pretty awful and might be able to be replaced with a silvia steam arm.

    New - around $450.

    Would probably need a service to clean and backwash and descale the boiler, replace group seal and shower screen (around $70-75)

    Good luck!

    Pic here too!

    Its a great machine and pulls excellent shots provided the grind is good IMHO. The problem I find is the lack of a three way valve so a bit of patience is required before removing the PF otherwise I get a minor explosion of grinds.
