  • Own Gaggia Classic & Sunbeam Cafe Series grinder -> Want to upgrade grinder

    Hi All,

    I was lucky enough to receive a Gaggia Classic and a Sunbeam EM0480 Cafe Series grinder from a friend.

    I am thinking of actually investing now in a superior grinder, such as the Baratza Sette 270wi at around $600. Later on, when I have a bigger place, I'd upgrade the coffee machine to something larger, with dual boilers etc..

    Does anyone have an opinion on this? I think my coffee machine is superior to my grinder, so the grinder would make more sense to upgrade at this point?

    Cheers,
    Friz

    Hi Friz. There’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to get good results from a Gaggia Classic with the Sunbeam 0480 as long as the grinder is in good working order and properly set up (ie. the right number of shims in place). So don’t upgrade just for the sake of it. However if you’re ready and keen to upgrade then I’d agree that the grinder is the place to start.
