Inspired by the elegant designs of Antonio Stradivari's violins, La Pavoni carefully crafted this sturdy Stradivari Manual Espresso Machine in a bright chrome casing. The ESC-8 edition features a classic construction and complete manual control over your brew, giving you the chance to brew the ultimate espresso shot. But a word to the wise: Just like those iconic Stradivari violins, this manual espresso maker takes time to perfect your technique and fully master.
Features & Functionality of the La Pavoni Stradivari Works

Exceptional Espresso - You'll love the shots you pull from this machine possibly more than you have loved any other.
Large Brew Group - Compared to other La Pavoni manual espresso machines, the Stradivari has a larger brew group, which has solved some of the temperature quirks of previous models.
Heavier Components - The Stradivari is a weightier espresso machine than other models, so while it still has a tendency to move a bit during extraction, it is heavier and remains more stable than other models.
Learning Curve - You're going to have a few up close and personal dates with your Stradivari before you can really get to know it. But once you've figured out how to pull shots from this machine, you'll wonder why you ever dabbled with any other espresso machine before.
Requires Burr Grinder - Consistency in coffee grinds requires that you invest in a high-end burr grinder in order to successfully extract great shots with Stradivari.
Second Shot's the Charm - It's often said that the first shot on manual espresso machines are not that great. Therefore, you'll probably end up throwing out your first shot of the day.
