TURNING A $450 MACHINE INTO A $3000 ESPRESSO MACHINE!: Gaggia Classic Pro FRANKENSTEIN

 Youtube

Detalhes do Vídeo

EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE THIS MACHINE, the video is a fun one. I'm quite proud of this one and hope you enjoy it, even if not in the market for a new machine!

Over the last few weeks since my first GCP video, I have been sourcing and implementing a few different mods for the GCP to epitomize performance. Check bottom of caption for list of prices and time spent on each mod!

Special thanks to PWEB and Anarcho on Espresso Aficionado Discord for helping me with the dimmer mod. They were super helpful as I navigated this not well-covered modification.
Special thanks to Mr. Shades for the prompt responses to questions on the PID install (the fix, I'm sure a sigh of relief to him, was the buffoonery of the misplaced decimal haha!)
