Good Points
Makes GREAT coffee if you learn how to use the machine

Bad Points
Manual is confusing

General Comments
I'd echo other comments on the Gaggia Classic - the bad reviews are very probably from people who haven't learnt to use their machine.

I've had mine for over 7 years and it's fantastic. I can make espresso, cappucino or latte at least as good as any coffee bar in Leeds. There's certainly enough steam pressure to froth the milk!!

Good coffee beans (Whittards for me) and a decent grinder (ascaso for me) are needed to get the best out of your machine. It's a manual and a single boiler so you need to learn how to get the best out of it.

Just plugging it in and expecting perfection is unrealistic at this price level, the right input and it will produce to rival any machine.

It offered an explanation as to why some reviews were so bad. I can understand that if someone is like me, a complete coffee making novice then I am not to expect a rival to my fav starbucks latte overnight.
