I had a Krups too wasn't up for much

Then I bought a baby gaggia from campberwell market and my espresso journey began !

Since then I've owned a gaggia classic, a bezzera bz 40,  a bezzera domus Galatia,  a la cimbali s20, and now a rancilio epoca

Must say my preference is for the semi commercial machines - they just seem to have more grunt and cope better with catering for larger numbers

Still to each their own and I know preferences are unique

Owned a bunch of commercial machines through my cafes but my favorite would have to be the kees van der westen mistral triplicate - beautifully designed with great functionality - it just seemed to ramp up to meet demand -  the busier we were the better it seemed to perform often coping with 10 to 12kg on a busy day no problem !
