I recently won this older Proteo Grande espresso machine (Starbucks brand). It's very solid, all metal except for the drip tray and water reservoir. It has a beautiful enamel blue finish. I've heard it was manufactured by Gaggia.
I have a proteo grande and fyi it's made by Saeco. Since they came out with the Barrista it's hard to find anyone to help repair the proteo.
That's why I'm writing: I'd like to find someone who has current information and referrals to anyone who knows how to repair them and get parts.
I have a Barrista and it's not as good. I need to replace all the gaskets and seals in the Proteo. And I'm looking for a new or good condition "portofilter"; or someone who can repair them.
