Gaggia Cubika v Baby v Classic
I’m thinking of getting an espresso machine and the 3 above all seem to be within £40 of each other so does anyone know if the classic is really £40 better than the cubika? There’s lots of mixed reviews about the cubika as well, a number saying there’s not a lot of space for an espresso shot cup underneath but it might be manageable. Someone on here posted recently about success with it though.
I’m coming from a point of no experience but enjoy a tasty coffee/cappuccino and espresso and the machines above for approx £150 seem to be worth investigating.

Classic has the chromed brass group head and portafilter as does the baby class(check that though) the cubika has an alloy group head, a friend’s cracked after a year or use.Posted 5 years ago
You don’t want the ‘crema device’ but a normal double basket.
I would get the classic as spares are readily available, I have a baby-dose as a work machine but can’t get a spare lid or over pressure right angle hose for the drip tray.molgripsSubscriber
Whilst we are on the subject, I complained about my incontinent Dose leaking tons of water out of the shower head all the time. Most online sutff tells you that it’s the three way valve or a diaphragm in the shower head that’s at fault. Well I have neither, but I gave it a good long descale and it’s much much better now. Still leaks a bit when moving to steam mode though.Posted 5 years ago
TT -thanks for the offer (i’m not far from Yate) but I went out today and bought a catchily named Delonghi ec710 for £89 and apart from buzzing from drinking badly made espresso I like it. The most recent cappuccino was more of a success so I’m on the path to caffeine fuelled nirvana.Posted 5 years ago
