James asked:

loing frothing.


Answer by mbrown205:

At the top of the wand, where it would be submerged if you put the entire panello head in the milk/froth, there are some or at least one horizonal slot open about as thick as a fingernail.  Kind of hard to see in the black plastic.  Also if you dissasemble the wand (I take mine apart regularly) on the cylinder there is a pinhole opening.  Gaggia USA has an excellent step by step with pictures for how to clean it.

Answer by James:

I have a background working with commercial machines, so this was a whole new experience for me. I like being able to control all the aspects of the brewing process, especially steaming the milk. The Gaggia Classic has become a staple, and for good reason. It's a great way to break into the world of home espresso machines at an affordable price. It features a single boiler, meaning you can either pull a shot of espresso or steam milk, but not both at the same time. There are pros and cons to which you do first, so really it's up to you. Milk steams at a higher temperature than espresso brews. So if you pull a shot first you'll have to wait for the boiler to heat up for about thirty seconds before steaming the milk. If you steam the milk first, you'll have to flush the steam out through the grouphead and wait for the boiler to refill. In each instance it takes about thirty seconds to either heat up, or cool down and refill the boiler.   In general it's recommended to pull the shot and wait for the water to heat up for steaming, but I preferred the other way around. Here's why: a shot of espresso is smaller in volume, so to me it makes more sense to steam the milk first, because it can retain its heat longer than the espresso. Try it out both ways and see what you think!   Now as far as steaming the milk goes, the Gaggia Classic features a pannarello wand, which makes it super easy to just place the milk pitcher under the wand and let it go. If you do you'll get really great frothy cappuccino milk. Personally, I like to have more control over how much air is added into the milk (more air = more froth), because I don't prefer froth. So if you're like me don't worry, there's a secret! If you remove the wand and use the tip that's left you'll be able to add as much or as little air as you like. Now, this is a little more advanced of a technique, but if you're feeling adventurous give it a shot. With this method you'll want to submerge the tip in the milk. To add more froth simply lower the pitcher until the tip is slightly above the surface until you have the desired frothiness. It takes some practice to get the balance level you like, but hey it's fun to play around anyway. So it's easy to use, and there is a good amount of flexibility with this machine, plus it makes a great cup of espresso. The only thing I didn't really prefer is the lightweight aspect of the machine. It's nice and small, which saves on counter space, but it moves around a little when you're tightening the portafilter to the grouphead--so you'll have to keep it steady with your other hand. There is a base you can buy for the machine, or if you're feeling resourceful and crafty I'm sure you could create a little base of your own.
