  • Gaggia Classic with decent grinder or Breville BES920?

    Hi experts,

    I had a power surge blow my Gaggia Classic up in a recent storm so am looking to replace. Insurance will cover cost of new Gaggia, since I have the chance to start afresh I was wondering if I should replace Gaggia Classic new & spend around $300 on a decent grinder (recommendations greatly appreciated) or use the grinder & insurance money to buy a Breville BES920 (which seems to be getting good reviews). Any advice? Thanks

    No advice at all? Am I trying to compare machines that aren't compatible?

      Yes they are not really in same boat, I went from PID classic to BDB and it was great. Heaps more fun to use, great bang for your buck machines especially if you treat them with some care.
      Yes I would definitely get the breville over another classic.

        Do you currently have a decent grinder?

          No I don't, which is why I was wondering if the Gaggia with a decent grinder will give a better cup than the Breville with the included grinder. I can't afford to upgrade to Breville AND buy a decent grinder so it's one or the other.

            The smart grinder pro that's included isn't too bad at all

              Agree...

              JB HiFi seem to have the best deal going at the moment for this package at under $1200. Worth checking out...

              Mal.
