If anyone uses the Gaggia MDF grinder with Silvia, what is a good starting
point for the grind? I generally use #6 for my Gaggia Coffee machine.

It is difficult to say as each MDF seems to differ.

I use the following:

1 or 2 for espresso pulls, depending on bean

5 for cafe crema

Howdy Harry,
There is no 'starting point' since every MDF produces different size grounds
at a particular setting. If you're getting good results with a Gaggia there
is no reason that grind wouldn't also be ideal for a Silvia.

For those needing to 'dial in' their new espresso machine here is what
someone passed along to me. Grind & test at different settings. Work down in
coarseness until you choke the filter then back off one or two settings &
you should be set.

Good luck!
