"Superb Style & Espresso for £140!"

Trust Gaggia! This trendy little machine is built as well as the Classic, Amante, Espresso, Cubika and Baby versions from Gaggia in my opinion. Its not steel, granted, but sturdy and quality never the less. It doesn't feel like most Delonghi's (for example) or usual household economy brands. Kind of like a Honda (if you get my drift!). Not as good as a Mercedes etc, but better than a Fiat! :-) Most Gaggia's are Honda's - great products, reliable, do their job - but Not quite top of the range.

It makes just as good coffee as the Classic for example. It heats up really fast and froths/ steams well and reliably. For a starter machine that doesn't break the bank - this really ticks all the boxes. I get a great shot every time with a superb crema - better than £200-£250 machines! The design works very well in a small area - so ideal for most standard kitchens.

Bottom line is....Get good beans, and a quality grinder & this will serve you well.

If you're looking for a professional espresso, obviously spend £1000 on (for example) the titanium machine which is simply amazing. I own both and use this in my office about 4-5 times a day. Got to give it 5/5 within its price range (under £300) - as it works VERY well on all fronts, looks great - AND it only costs £140!!
