Product Description

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.

This product is an Open Box product.

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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
How Does it Compare?

Unlike the PC-16 and the PPB-16, this model does not come with an auto frothing device, and it is not available for purchase as a separate accessory.

so for this pavoni buying pre ground coffee what would you recommend to get started? I don't have a grinder at the moment to play. If I can buy it ground for my pavoni what setting do I have them grind it at?

I like espresso that is chocolaty and nutty not bitter.

Best Answer: We do not recommend using pre-ground coffee for a manual espresso machine like La Pavoni. When you do get a grinder, I recommend Zoka Espresso Paladino if you like chocolate and nutty, not bitter espresso. You can certainly try pre-ground and experiment, Lavazza Crema e Gusto pre-ground is chocolatey.
