Looks like something to avoid.

and the seller does NOT have much in the way of experience.

shop around -- locally, or from a local UK ebayer.

From the looks (large selector knob front and center) this is a thermoblock
and should be avoided. The portafilter looks small and light as well. Gaggia
seems to be spreading its name a little too thin now.


The cheapest good Gaggias that have the usual Gaggia boiler and full size
(58mm basket ) portafilter are the "Espresso" and "Carreza".

Don't forget to budget for a high quailty grinder such as the Gaggia MDF -
the grinder is more important than the espresso machine.

Even if you think you're not after excellence, it won't be long before any
shortcuts come back to bite you - you'll spend more in the long run if you
buy something inadequate.

Also the 25 GBPs for shipping on a 49 GBP item, think he could do a lot
better.
