Posted Sun Mar 30, 2014, 8:03am Subject: Sold: Gaggia Baby
I've outgrown my starter machine and so it has to go. It's a Gaggia Baby that was more or less new when I got it. The original owner pretty much gave up on it instantly and it sat in his basement for years. I made a few modifications that made learning with this machine a little easier. First off I used a hole bit to drill out the portafilter and make it bottomless. It's been filed and smoothed to a very reasonable finish. Second, I replaced the steam wand with the Silvia V2. This made a huge difference in the quality of milk I was seeing out of the thing.
I've learnt a lot from this beast and would like to pass it on. I'll consider shipping it, but I'd prefer to sell it in Toronto.
