La Pavoni Europiccola Manual Espresso Machine Open Box is a mechanical wonder to behold. In your hands the espresso machine can respond to the smallest variation in timing and dosage. Although it is not an easy machine to master, the shots can be some of the best you can get.

Features & Functionality of the La Pavoni Europiccola

  • 20 ounce Boiler: With the 20 ounce boiler capacity, this espresso machine can make 8 - 2 ounce shots of espresso.
  • Steam and Piston: Shot extraction and milk steaming are powered by steam pressure and pistons.
  • Internal Thermostat: La Pavoni's internal thermostat will continuously monitor the pressure to ensure proper extraction.
  • Stainless Steel Heating Elements: Stainless steel elements are very durable and last a long time.
  • Nickel-Plated Brass Boiler: This sold brass boiler plated with nickel maintains an even temperature, which is essential to a quality extraction.
Pros
  • Superior Shot Quality - You have the ultimate control over every aspect of your shot.
  • Iconic Design - The Europiccola is as beautiful in form as it is fabulous in function. It's reminiscent of an antique you might find from the 1920s.
  • Heats Quickly - You'll be ready to pull a shot and steam your milk in about five minutes.
Cons
  • Learning Curve - Because this machine is manual, it does take some time to learn the specific grind of the coffee, tamp pressure and pulling technique required to produce an amazing shot. Some users thought it was too difficult to use, while others felt it only took a few tries to master it.
  • Body Temperature - It heats quickly, therefore the entire structure is hot, so be careful when handling.
  • Steaming Temperature - Some people have reported a lower steaming temperature than they prefer, so begin the steaming process with warmed milk (though this will not allow you to produce microfoam very effectively).

A shopper asked: Hello, I am doing research on espresso machine before purchasing one. I love espresso but a good cup of espresso is hard to find in Atlanta. The last time I had a good cup of espresso was in Italy. I have never made espresso before but would love to learn how to. I have read about many different brands and types of machine from fully automatic to manual. I am drawn to the automatic machine. I also read that you must have a good coffee grinder for the la pavoni manual machine. I have a kitchen aid proline burr coffee grinder. Is that efficient for the la pavoni manual espresso machine? I'm thinking about purchasing a la pavoni manual espresso machine. Also, is there a video that comes with the machine that teaches you how to use it? Nov 30, 2013

Teri KStaff: This La Pavoni machine is actually the most difficult machine that we offer to learn how to use, since it is a manual machine without a pump. This means that in addition to dialing in the grind and tamping with 30 pounds of pressure so that your shots extract in the 20-30 second timeframe, you are also responsible for pressure on the lever for proper water flow through the grounds. Anyone can learn how to use a La Pavoni, but it does take lots of time and lots of bad shots and wasted grounds before you will be pleased! It requires a very fine grind, and unfortunately I think you will need to upgrade from the KitchenAid Proline grinder. There is not a video that comes with the machine, but we do have a variety of videos online that will be helpful. Check out our YouTube channel and search Pavoni. I have included a very helpful video below as well:
