Great machine if you value speed and simplicity over quality.
I've been using the machine over a year now and it does well at making good to very good espresso. Even using the same beans as your favourite coffee shop, I haven't been able to quite match the body and crema, but it's still quite...

Does this machine have an option that allows auto or timed shut-off?
We have thisvmachine and it continues to leak from underneath.. There is. Always a puddle under it so theater tank runs out fast it seems.. Any way to fix this?
I get much better coffee if I grind it separately and brew using the "pre-ground" option. Is there a way to clean this machine's burr grinder?
Fyi, using the built-in grinder, I get a very short flow of dark espresso, followed by very clear, weak liquid - especially noticeable if selecting coffee. Using coffee I grind in an external grinder, I get a nice flow of crema throughout the extraction. I've tried the two finest settings of the grinder.
Thanks for any suggestions,
I have the Gaggia Platinum Swing Up and the original filter is an Aqua Prima; you only list the Mavea Intenza filter for this machine. I just want to be sure it will work on my machine,
We recently retired our Capresso C3000 which served us well for several years. Our preferred coffee brand is Illy which we use to make cafe crema. Will the Gaggia Platinum Swing Up make as good a cup of Cafe Crema as the Capresso did or should I look at other machines?
How tall is this machine? Thanks.
My steam wand drips water while coffee is being brewed, how do I troubleshoot the problem?
What cleaning product is best for descaling this machine?
