[SOLD] OT: Gaggia Classic [Cambridge]

Posted on
  • -- NOW SOLD -- 2014 Gaggia Classic. Looking for £80 ONO.

    Full disclosure: this has been used in an office, so it's made more coffees and has not been treated as well as a home machine would have been. That said: I've completely taken it apart, deep cleaned it and replaced:

    1. The steam valve assembly (the old one had a leak and they're unservicable)
    2. The boiler to grouphead gasket (Silicone, should be more durable than the original EPDM one)
    3. Portafilter gasket
    4. Steam wand O-ring

    It's got the Rancilio steam wand instead of the stock one, and the OPV has been adjusted to ~10 bar static pressure (see photo), which is generally assumed to deliver ~9 bars against a coffee puck. It comes with a portafilter (it's a bit banged up, see photo. But 100% functional), 2 Gaggia baskets (same size, so...maybe no point in having two), and a few spare steam wand O-rings and shower screen screws.

    I'm based in Cambridge. Collection preferred of course, but I could deliver to the Greater Metropolitan Area (i.e.: the villages around Cambridge) if you don't have transport.

    Any questions, please ask!

  • Good price. I have a 2011 one - paid a lot more than this for it too (2nd hand) and it still required a full strip and descale when I got it.

  • can I dibs please and see if my bro can collect (he's Cottenham) and let you know later today? Can't see why he couldn't/wouldn't sort promptly. if cool please pm your collection address area and best time(s) to collect. cheers

  • Second dibs here please (St Neots) - can collect one evening, when kids are asleep.

  • @Pasty_Spumante OK I’ll PM you now. Can deliver if needed, so I think it should work out.

    @c00ps 2nd dibs duly noted.

  • Yeah I noticed the eBay prices have gone a bit bananas over lockdown. Given the amount of money and time I’ve spent on the machine, I decided in the end that the most important thing is to get it back out in the world delivering tasty coffee. This way, someone on here (who is by definition a Good Person) gets a good deal with some cash left for a tamper and basket and what have you.

  • Can’t see this hanging round for long glws

  • pm'd mate - he can collect no probs just a matter of when passing/you're about but lots of opportunities so shouldn't be too hard for the moons to align. Cheers
