Gaggia Carezza part supplier
Hi there good snobs just wanted some info from the cognoscenti on a recent purchase. I managed to pick up a Gaggia Carezza and Saeco Mac1 grinder for $60 which seemed a decent price. The chap demonstrating it didn't know a great deal about it (auction job lot) but I noticed a moderate amount of water dripping from the brewing head during and after use. Found a gasket kit online which could cure some its ills but appreciate that the valve in the centre probably needs replacing additionally etc etc. It came with all its bits and pieces including the Perfect Crema disc but unfortunately not the "peg" as the Parts.guru describes it. I may invest in the Perect Crema 2-cup filter basket they sell which has superseded it but am tossing up whether do do that or just buy a pack of 3 of the "pegs".
Anyway long story short, I've been attempting track down a local Oz supplier of these parts but my on-line trawling hasn't thrown up many leads, I would rather buy locally rather than a US or european-based supplier if that is possible both out of patriotism but to get around the extortionate postage. Has anyone else got one of these machines and if so where do you source parts?
