If only builders of the Tower of Pisa had a La Pavoni Professional PBB-16, it may have stood a little taller today. How much espresso do you need to really get going in the morning? One shot, two shots...sixteen shots??? With classic construction that gives you complete control over your brew, you'll love the quality espresso shots you can craft with the Professional PBB-16. Solid good looks come from shiny chrome and a heavy duty black base. Extra control comes from an easy read gauge. Master this manual machine to pull up to 16 two-ounce shots thanks to the large 38 ounce boiler.

Features & Functionality of the La Pavoni Professional PBB-16

  • Large Boiler: Pull up to sixteen 2 ounce cups of espresso with the 38 ounce boiler.
  • Steam Wand Functionality: Use the manual wand to steam your milk.
  • Internal Thermostat and Mounted Pressure Gauge: Easily monitor and control pressure with the internal thermostat and mounted pressure gauge.
  • Varying Brewing Capacity: You can select to make one or two cups at a time.
  • Nickel Plated Boiler: The nickel-plated solid brass boiler provides improved temperature regulation.
Pros
  • Exceptional Espresso - You'll love the shots you pull from this machine possibly more than you have loved any other.
  • Large Boiler - The 38oz boiler will give you the ability to pull up to 16 two-ounce cups of espresso — great for parties.
  • Small Footprint - Maximize your counter top space with the PBB-16's small size.
Cons
  • Temperamental - Users report this espresso machine can be a bit on the temperamental side, requiring a high level of maintenance and care.
  • Slow to Warm Up - If you're in a rush, this machine takes more time than perhaps you'd like to get up to steaming temperature. The manufacturer says five minutes, but we've heard reports of up to 15 minutes.

Sort by:
Mike C asked: Aside from the color of the base, what is the difference between this machine and the PC-16? Is the base durable? Is the portafilter, group-head and all the main parts that brew the shot the same as the PC-16?

Thanks,
