Ok, so my deal on the Silvia fell through. That's fine. It was too good to be true.

I want a good home machine without a pressurized portafilter. Something that will allow me to take my skills to a whole new level.

I've narrowed it down to two machines. Either the Gaggia Baby or the Gaggia Espresso Pure.

The only big difference I can see is the solenoid valve (which to me sounds more like a convenience thing than anything else). Will it really improve the espresso? I'm doubtful. Enlighten me.

For a grinder, I've settled on the Baratza Maestro Plus. I can't see much tangible difference between it and the Virtuoso, so I'll save the $50.

What I'm wondering is, is there a noticeable difference in the quality of espresso between these two Gaggia machines?

Are you able to pull the fabled \"god shot\" with these things, or am I going to get upgrade-itis again in a few months?

Any help is appreciated.
