Positive Product Points

I am a newbie.  Why do people think the Gaggia Classic is inferior to the Rancilio Silvia?  Brass boiler, OK, Why?  What is that brass boiler going to get me?

Negative Product Points

Detailed Commentary

I am new, I love the Gaggia Classic!  What am I missing?  I had a crappy 6 bar machine for a year before it blew up, before that I had a steam machine, didnt realize that was Americana and not Espresso.  The Gaggia Classic delivers perfect shots of espresso!  i am not into Lattes, Cappuchino, I just like good espress with a sugar.  Raw Black espress!  23 seconds with the proper tamp and grind and this is barista quality!  

Why is the Ranchillio Silvia such a legend?  The Gaggia Classic makes the same shot!

Buying Experience

love it
