Subject: Mahlkönig Vario purchase in UK
 

Hello, I'm a "noob" looking forward to my first purchase so that I can make some great espresso, americano, cappuccino and iced cap.

I've decided that the combination of equipment I would like is a Mahlkönig Vario grinder and a Gaggia Classic espresso machine.

Next step is to find a supplier. I'd like to buy new, and I'm about to order the grinder from Coffee Italia.

So, the question is.... any tips, advice or suggestions (particularly if there are any good offers - in the UK - on the Vario that I haven't seen) ?

Many thanks!

Check out Bella Barista in the UK, they are a proper Bricks and Mortar as well as online reseller and properly support the stuff they sell. Remember with these machines the Warranty is with the retailer NOT with the company that makes them! They are based in the UK and probably have machines that will be better than the Gaggia for only a little more. They sell the vario, but also the Eureka Mignon (IMO a better grinder and cheaper).

Try not to buy a Gaggia, get something a little better to pair with that class of grinder.
