These Gaggia Classic accessories must be replaced


Unfortunately, the Gaggia Classic ships with two items that will prevent your barista training and must be replaced:

  1. the pressurized filter basket, identified by the singular hole on the bottom. Buy a new filter basket for $15.
  2. the plastic “turbo” steam wand. Replace it with a Rancilio-style wand for $30.

I purchased both my replacement parts on eBay.
