Greatest machine everReview by Joe mama
I have had this machine for just over 3 years now, and still love it. It took me a couple of weeks in refining technique, but love my morning ritual. It takes about 6 minutes to heat boiler from cold to ready to go. I live in Oregon and the down side is if you did need any sort or repair you are sc_ _ _ ed. Just expect that the machine is going to be gone for weeks up to a month.
I love my machine, just hoping to never have a problem. (Posted on 11/22/2014)
great espressoReview by somewhereinla
I have 20 years experience with making espresso. I have an E61 Izzo Alex, the La Pavoni is a second machine. The La Pavonie is a great machine and has been very consistent with producing great espresso shots but it is a very unforgiving machine. the grind must be perfect and very fine, so to get good results you will need to invest in a very good espresso optimized grinder — think Mazzer or a Rancilio Rocky if you are on a budget... I have a Baratza Vario and I can't get a fine enough grind that's consistent, a problem I don't have with my E-61. The setting on my Vario is at it's finest setting and I wish I could go a little finer... I gave it 4 stars because steaming milk and get micro foam for cappuccinos is not really possible in my experience so far. (Posted on 5/27/2014)
A Legend for good reasonReview by Pontiac
I have had my Pavoni since 1990. It has been around the world with me and has performed faultlessly for over 23 years. The keys are to use fresh beans ( in Seattle I prefer Middle Forks' Full City Espresso) a good burr grinder and never use ultra- pasteurized milk. This beautiful machina is a bargain at twice the price and with a little practice you will make perfect espresso and lattes for a lifetime. (Posted on 2/28/2014)
Espresso successReview by CK loves her coffee
This is our first experience with a home espresso machine, and we are very happy! It is a lovely presence in our kitchen, all shiny and mechanical looking, and the shots we have made are delicious! It does take a bit of time to heat up the boiler, but once this is accepted, no big deal. We have received many compliments from family and friends, and we LOVE our machine! Steaming the milk is a bit challenging, but practice has improved our frothy lattes. A bit pricy, yes, but the machine should last several lifetimes!
