    Gaggia Classic ''crema'' problems

    Anyone got any tips on how to get a better crema from the Gaggia Classic?
    I''ve lost the tiny little component that comes with the crema perfetta fitting, so can''t use that - but I''ve noticed that other machines produce the crema without using anything like that.

    Any tips greatly received.

    You surely don't need any type of artificial crema enhancement on such a great machine. The first thing in question would be your bean freshness. Anything older than 2 weeks from roast date won't give great results. Another thing is what grinder you use. Another thing to keep in mind is making sure to grind only before each shot, never in advance. Send me an e-mail if you'd like to chat more about this. Later!
    I'm a legend among my own kind... you my friend are just a legend in your own mind. Later!

    The secret is in the grind! GET a great BURR GRINDER and you should be off to the races! I have a Rancilio Rocker and it does the job!

    Once you decide on the grinder a little experimenting and voila the crema will magically become a reality.
