Does anyone know anything about this machine. It looks like a Classic,
but I'm a little suspicious because of the low price. On special offer
in a UK department store for =A3135 vs the usual =A3200+ for real
Gaggias.

Could it be a lesser coffee machine put in a more expensive housing as
a one off special for a department store?

TIA - Rufus.

Thanks just ordered one. From what I can make out it is the internals
of a "Coffee Deluxe" put in the casing of a classic. So no 3 way valve
and a silly want to boot. But at least a grown up boiler and pump for
less than a reconditioned coffee from Gaggia uk.

Made as a one of special for a European chain, with excess stock having
found its way to the UK as a special purchase item.

Should be with me within a week, then all I need is a passable burr
grinder (prob the Dualit) and I can retire my Krups and cans of Illy!

Rufus.
