Positive Product Points

This product has served me WELL for almost six years.  Solid build and even better results.

Negative Product Points

Looks leave a little to be desired.  Just makes you want cooler stuff like more steam volume or taped in water supply.

Detailed Commentary

This is the only machine I own for use at home.  I have looked into buying something newer but I always end of looking back at the Gaggia and not being able to justify the cost of a new machine, because it brews one dam good cup of coffee.

The build is solid but the looks arn't that great.  I've never had a problem with the machine.  The plastik adapter for the steam wand is useless because with it you always end up foamming the milk way more than heating it.  It takes a while to do your milk but it is a home machine.

Buying Experience

I can not remember the specific name of the store in Seattle where I purchased this Coffee Gaggia.  But I didn't go there to shop, I knew what I wanted at the time and this vendor had both black and white to chose from.  I got black.
