Subject: Gaggia Coffee parts question
Does the Gaggia Coffee have one or two water intake lines leading into the
water tank? Is there a connection for a second water line, or is the
connection for use with the Classic's pressure release valve?

My Carezza has two, though I've never given much thought to the
function of the second one.

Howdy Harry!

The answer is - Yes.

Some Gaggia's do have a second tube into the water reservoir. It's part of
the 'self-priming' feature. Some machines have a tube from the boiler
mounted PRV to a fitting above the reservoir (with or without a tube into
the tank) & some have release valves attached to the pump & these vent
directly into the reservoir.

Are you talking about the Coffee or the Classic? As far as I can see my
Classic has two plastic/rubber/whatever pipes into the watertank, one
of which reaches the bottom (presumably water in) and the other is
shorter (or I may just have it positioned wrong) which I might guess
would be a return from the pump side. There is of course a separate
metal pipe to relieve pressure from the brewing side of the 3-way
valve.

I'm asking about the Coffee, not the Classic. I'm wondering if some of the
parts aren't the same on the two machines? My Coffee came with only one
tube, unless one was misplaced in the packing. I'm asking if there should
have been two tubes.

My Gaggia Espresso has only one tube (which is for water intake). The
pressure release tube is apparent on the inside of the machine, but it runs
to a little plastic nozzle (not a tube) that aims down into the reservoir.

So you should at least have a nozzle (part of the chassis, I believe) aiming
down into the reservoir. Saves the hassle of a second tube.
