Aromia, sl70 ro Gaggia baby was created by g8trwood
I'm looking for my second home machine. I have a solis bur grinder.

My needs are for 2 cups a day, one espresso and one with steamed milk for my wife.

the Rancho is out of my price range and I am looking at the Saeco, Solis and Gaggia. Any recommendations of the three? Looks will probably matter to my wife, but I would prefer better coffee.

Thanks.

Well...

The SL70 has the biggest boiler and it is brass... marine brass.

The Gaggia Baby has a alum-composite boiler and a 3-way solenoid.

The Saeco has a S-Steel boiler.

I would tolerate the slightly smaller portafilter on the Solis and get the SL70.

It represents the best value of the 3 suggested.

There is some conversations about replacing the filter basket on the Solis, can you point me towards the recommended replacement?

There is a non-pressurized replacement that you can get from Baratza, QualityCoffeeSystems.Com, EspressoTec.com (possibly) and WholeLatteLove.com

I just received my sl70 in the mail. On the outside of the box it says \"thermobloc heater with solis brewing system\". Did they change from a boiler? I haven't unpacked it yet as I am trying to see if they changed the model.

The SL70 has always had an 8-ounce Marine brass boiler -
