Hello from Washington DC
« on: August 07, 2017, 10:29:15 AM »
Northern Virginia really, but thanks for having me! I own a Gaggia pure that I bought new in 2013. It's been reliable and very enjoyable to date. I use it strictly for pulling shots. I joined to connect with fellow Gaggia owners, which seems to not be a problem here. I use a Baratza Preciso grinder which has been solid too.

I recently ordered a bottomless portafilter which i'm excited to try.

Welcome to GUG Jared - you'll find most people here are Classic users but there are some who use Pure/Colour models and the stainless steel boiler in those models has been incorporated into the so-called "New Classic 2015" model in Europe.

There was a thread a while back about the variability of the water temp in Pure/Colour/"New Classic" stainless boilers - you might like to search for it, someone had developed a routine which guaranteed a good consistent boiler temp at extraction time - always good to establish a consistent temp so you can compare one shot to the next and see the impact of any changes.
