I have a problem but I don’t know if it's the grinder (Infinity) or the espresso machine (Gaggia evolution).
To be able to even get a shot (2oz) from my machine I need to set the grinder to the last course. ans this is with a tamping pressure of 30lbs.
I guess since some of you have the setting in no less than fine that the problem may be with my machine water flow through the group head and not the grinder.
I just ordered the decalcifier to clean it up and see if that helps.
I've read all the specs for both the Evolution and Pure....in your opinion is the Pure a more updated version of the Evolution and which would you recommend?
Help! I just bought this machine and have tried multiple grinds, but the espresso always comes spewing out! About half of the shot goes into the cup and the other half all over my counter. What am I doing wrong?
Subject: Gaggia Evolution problem, HELP!
1) After i steam the milk and wan to continue to brew espresso but when i press the brew button a lot of steam come out from group head it is normal? What happening to my machine?
2)I spot some black tiny thing in my reservoir n sometime at the hot water i make out from steam nozzle, what happening?
3)The retailer tell me that i can't making the hot water from the steam nozzle, it is true? because i saw at instr
Two issues with my Evolution:
1) First shot is always overextracted despite that I prime the machine and let it "heat up" well after the green light turns on (probably 6-7 minutes in total)
2) I bought the gaggia pressurized basket and so far the crema it produces is underwhelming and a normal basket seems to work better; is there a trick to get the pressurized basket to work well?
I purchased a Gaggia Evolution Xmas 2008 (i.e., about 3-1/2 years ago), and have loved it. However, a few months ago, the espresso started coming out much slower, and more recently water is flowing over the top of the portafilter while brewing espresso, making for watery coffee. I have descaled (many times, but it only makes the slightest difference), removed and cleaned the shower screen. Time to replace, or can it be fixed? Is this the life span of a Gaggia?
can this coffee make 4 cups at a time and what container do you use
I have a Gaggia Evolution but I bought it used without a drip tray or single shot filter. Are these parts available?
I have the Gaggia Evolution Silver and it is being returned for repairs or replacement. I do not see the Gaggia Silver machines on your website anymore. If my machine has to be replaced because it cannot be repaird, will I get a new Evolution Silver machine? It was more expensive than the others and therefore I want it to be replaced with one that is Silver and not Black.
I have a Rancilio Silvia that has stopped heating the boiler for the espresso pull. The steamer element still works though. Do you have a suggestion for the part I need to fix it?
