Issues with the Gaggia Espresso Pure machine: steam is coming out of the filter basket when the machine is making coffee (the steam button is not pressed). In addition, the basket handle tends to turn itself loose again and coffee grounds come down as well....what is going on? What should I do to fix it? I miss my morning espresso :(
I purchased the Gaggia Espresso Pure about 6 months ago and I love it. However, recently my coffee is not coming out well. Steam is coming out of the filter basket and coffee grounds comes out as well (probably from top of the filter basket) . What is going on? What can I do?
I'm looking to purchase my first espresso machine. Whats the difference between the Gaggia Espresso and the Gaggia Evolution? Which one would be better.
Super fast shipping - arrived in a just a few days, even with free ground shipping... packaging was three boxes thick (no skimping, which was good because outside box was gashed open on one side). Assembled, cleaned and tested. Filter basket impossible to lock one-handed, but that I anticipated with a lightweight unit. I'll have a more extensive review as my Gaggia Pure and I become acquainted, but it immediately seems like an excellent value for the price. To be continued...
Hello. Everyone seems to love this machine, so I'm wondering why I hate it. I have been brewing espresso and lattes at home for over 5 years, so I am not a beginning. I use high-quality coffee for a local coffee shop that grinds the beans for espresso. However, every time I brew espresso with the Espresso Pure, the coffee tastes bitter and nasty. I thought maybe I had just purchased a bitter coffee, so I tried a different variety. Same results. I do not fill the brew basket to the top, so the coffee is not coming in contact with the heating element. What am I doing wrong? I was also going to complain that by the time the machine warms back up enough to steam milk, the espresso is not only bitter but cold. But I did just read that steaming the milk before pulling the shot may solve that problem. I am also unamused that I paid $249 for this machine about a month ago, and now it is selling for $199. :( Thank you.

Please help me figure out filter cup is for what. I have the gaggia pure espresso. They are so much alike. When do i use the little black thing. My filters are not marked. Thank you
I've had my machine for almost a year with at least a drink a day and I'm pleased with it. I do get a bit of leaking when the machine is heating to steam temp but its not to much of an issue. One thing I didn't like was the steam wand was letting way to much air into the milk. There is a small...
