I bought my La Pavoni after using a Baby Gaggia for about 10 years. The lever machine seriously raised my home barista skills. Each lever pull offers an adventure in learning and the espresso is usually a joy to drink. I've had the PPG-16 for about a year now and it still puts a smile on my face when I see it waiting for me in the morning.

Pros:
Warm-up time is always less than 10 minutes.
Froths milk beautifully although I switched to a single hole tip.
User serviceable machine with no problems.
The best espresso I have ever made. (Mazzer Mini helps, also).
Unmatched sculptural beauty with a small footprint.
Easy to keep clean and maintain.

Cons:
Don't touch the boiler when it is turned on.
Wait 30 seconds for the pressure to dissipate before removing the portafilter.
This is not a machine to make repeat cappuccinos at a party, unless you are the entertainment.

In summary, this is not a machine for a casual relationship. I'm small-batch roasting the beans and using a bottomless portafilter with various tampers. I'm still working on latte art and the "God Shot". I believe La Pavoni, or maybe another quality lever machine, offers the perfect path to coffee perfection.
