Gaggia classic coffee machine real Italian Espresso fully rebuilt. I've had this machine for over ten years and rebuilt it from scratch this summer after the boiler broke. New boiler, new bolts, new gaskets, new pump, new silicone grouphead gasket (they feel much better). After rebuilt it I noticed the steam tap was dripping when I ran water for Americanos.
It's not a serviceable part. There is a mod but its quite involved.So I replaced the steam tap. The brass coloured one is the original and the light coloured one is the new one. Note when not in use fold the steam wand over the drip tray as they all do drip a bit, this is normal. Other upgrades everything but the 2020 steam wand and a pid... Brass dispersion plate (much better temperature stability and it doesn't corrode like the aluminium ones) -- Rancillio steam wand with aggressive 3 hole tip -- Uprated 155c steam thermostat - basically this thing steams like a b1tch -- Bottomless portafilter with triple basket - see photo but you'll want an IMS basket to get it that smooth, the standard one may spray, I'm keeping the IMS one sorry! -- Wooden handle double spout with double basket. I rounded off the standard one oops.
If any question on the extra t'd in plumbing or how it works just ask but for me 9 bar works perfect. I'll chuck the pressure guage in the box.Pro tip: get a set of barrista cloths, you always need to wipe up some coffee or spray and they're ideal, look pro and better than paper towels. I live in a soft water area. When I changed the boiler there was hardly any limescale. So I never had to descale but I always backflushed with puly caff every weekend and never had any problems. This thing steams brilliantly and is very fast for single drinks. A worthy upgrade would be the new model steam wand and a pid! But I changed the machine before doing this. Like classic car restoration this was a labour of love. There is some corrosion on the plate holding the pump because its mild steel and could use being replaced but it doesn't impact performance. Replace the rubber supporting the pump if you do do it. Both are cheap parts bit I'd have to take it all apart again to do it! This is a 2002 high wattage no sleep model, the real deal. It's basically as new, makes superb coffee and is a reliable, easy to live with Classic.
