The Gaggia Classic Pro Home Espresso Machine packs a real punch for a budget home espresso machine. There is no other machine at the price point that will perform quite as well. Nevertheless, the Gaggia Classic's punch can sometimes be more than you're looking for, as out of the box, the pressure at the group head can be higher than the industry-standard 9-bar.
If you want to really perfect your espresso extractions, then dialling down your Gaggia Classic's pressure at the group head to 9-bar should be helpful. Thankfully this is a relatively easy thing to do by replacing the factory-fitted OPV spring with this slightly modified one.
This is a relatively easy modification to make, but it will invalidate your Gaggia Classic Pro warranty if it is a new machine and you perform the modification yourself. As such, we are happy to perform the installation for you, for a small fee, at our HQ in Claremont, Cape Town. If we make the modification, your warranty will still apply. Please just make sure that you contact the team to make arrangements, and please note that it may take us a couple of working days to do the modification.
If you're buying a new machine, with the spring, we can fit it for you before dispatch. Please mention your preferences on the order notes (on the cart page) and we can let you know the cost of fitting. If you're buying the spring alone, to fit into an existing machine, we'd suggest you mention in the order notes (on the cart page), if you'd like us to deliver it or if you'd like to bring in your machine for the modification (bearing in mind that we will not be able to do it on the spot).
If you're outside the Western Cape, we can make arrangements to courier the machine to our HQ and back to you, at a quoted price. Please just get in touch!
