The Best of the Best
Sici Republicano
Have had a Pavoni since 1973. Unfortunately a couple of years ago I forgot I turned it on, burned the heating element, On my visit to Sicily I purchased the EPC-8 (120 V) and have enjoyed ever since. It makes the best Cappuccino according to my lady-friend. I use Kimbo 100% Arabica with my La Pavoni EPC-8.
Great espresso Machine
A machine for the espresso purist
simply the best
Mine was bought in Italy in the 1970s...I burnt it out a few times but there used to be a neat store in Swiss cottage in London that sold parts. Then it was taken for a complete overall, in a tiny store in Little Italy in San Francisco where they drooled over it, replaced gaskets etc. since then it has been spurting out my.morning cafe ever since, a little steamy and noisy but one of the worlds great espresso machines.
Great Machine
I second everything that Nikos and Michael posted and add, that mine was thrown from a second story balcony and survived without any repair. Dents yes.. Damage to performance=NONE! Still working after 30 years. last ten of which it never saw the light of day and emerged...working but in need of TLC.
A timeless piece of craftmanship
I bought my La Pavoni over 3 decades ago and still brew my espresso every evening. I replaced a couple of gaskets about 10 years ago, which were readily available, and inexpensive, online. The chrome still shines. Its a wonderful machine and once you discover the perfect grind, you'll have years, decades of great coffee making. Nothing mechanical to break down. Planned obsolescence hasn't affected this great old design, like so many of the new machines that rely on too many complex systems, this machine just pushes steamed water through the filer basket, so simple. While the price has climbed substantially since I bought my machine, its still a deal given its longevity.
Wouldn't have another espresso machine
I have used the La Pavoni Europiccola for a little over a decade now. The machine looks and performs today exactly as it did out of the box and shows no signs of slowing down. It costs a lot, is a little inconvenient, and requires some practice to get a cup right. But it's worth it when you see the perfect crema forming in the cup. The process of making espresso with a La Pavoni, the quality of the results, and even the way it looks on the counter raise the ritual of making and drinking a cup of coffee to an art. The money spent to acquire the Europiccola is long forgotten, and I have never regretted my decision.
