Features & Functionality of the La Pavoni Europiccola

  • 20 ounce Boiler: With the 20 ounce boiler capacity, this espresso machine can make 8 two 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).

Jeremy H: I just ordered the espro tamper 51mm and it is to large for the La Pavoni portafilter. I'm sending it back for the 49 mm tamper. Feb 27, 2014
Teri KStaff: Sorry- I should have clarified! The older machines made before 1999 use a 49mm portafilter. I assumed you were looking to purchase a tamper along with a new machine, and the new units that were manufactured in 1999 and after use a 51mm tamper. Feb 27, 2014
