Bottom Line: Poor design gives me to much trouble.
Positive Product Points

Small foot print sharp design

Negative Product Points

High levels of coffee dust at coarsest setting clogs my expresso brewing head.
Ground coffee collector difficult to clean.

Detailed Commentary

This machine is noisy.. Produces so much coffee dust at the course setting that my expresso machine gets regularly clogged up.
The coffee collector is difficult to clean due to its W type shape
Coffee grounds drop every time the collector is pulled from the machine due to the ground coffee delivery orifice being vertical.
However the machine has a 'sharp' design and small footprint.
The hopper is easy to use as is the grind selection.
On balance I would not recommend this machine to anyone, it realy is
too much trouble. Gaggia designers realy should evaluate usability
before marketing such a product.

Buying Experience

Satisfactory, staff helpful.
