Da Vinci, Botticelli, Stradivari, all Italian masters in their own right, they were focused for years on perfecting their art and ideas. Enter La Pavoni Stradivari ESW 8, a harmonious pairing of art and ideal. High style Italian chrome and curves meets carefully crafted rosewood knobs and lever handles for the exacting performance that is La Pavoni's trademark. La Pavoni Stradivari engages all the senses with tactile pleasure for the barista pulling shots as well as the beauty of the machine and always the wonderful taste and aroma of espresso. Remember before you can become a master there is an apprenticeship, La Pavoni manual espresso machines take more time and effort but the results are worth it!
Features & Functionality of the La Pavoni Stradivari Works
Professional-Grade Boiler: With a 20 ounce capacity, you can make up to 8 two ounce shots of espresso in a row.

Quality Shots - You'll be pulling the best shots you've ever tasted from this espresso machine and will have the opportunity to truly perfect each aspect of espresso extraction.
Sturdy Design - The weight and size of this espresso machine could lend itself to improved stability during the extraction process.
Beautiful Design - The Stradivari is both elegant and functional, allowing you to pull a large quantity of espresso while maintaining its grand aesthetic appeal. You can go commercial without looking industrial.
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.
Stability - Since you're manually extracting the shot, the lever does require some level of force on your part and the base of the machine isn't super heavy. While it is heavier than other La Pavoni manual espresso machines, it still isn't as stable as we'd like it to be.
