I like the manual work

hoosier_grad, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: Joy of my day. I not only enjoy the espresso it makes, but also admire its simplicity and elegance. After five months of heavy use it still works like a charm and looks good as new. I have a thing for the simpler espresso makers. I am currently using a MyPressi at work, and Presso as a backup at home. La Pavoni is the holy grail for me. Not only does it make great espresso, it also heats up pretty fast and can quickly make many servings when you have guests.

Fantastic shots!

  • Summary: I'm a new owner of this machine, so here are my initial thoughts: This machine does take a little "getting to know" but it's not nearly as frustrating as some people say. Pros: -great shots!!! just make sure you have a good grinder and know how to adjust it properly. also fresh roasted coffee! -relatively fast warm up for this quality of shots. anything with a pump that can pull these kind of shots would take longer.

Hands down, best manual espresso machine and a beautiful work of art.

  • Summary: Hands down, best manual espresso machine and a beautiful work of art. Don't let the simplicity of the machine intimidate or fool you, this is one easy machine to use and you will never spend $$$$ at the local $t@r&ucks or coffee shop for an espresso or cappuccino. Maintenance is super easy also and this thing should last for years. Buy a used one first to test out your skills and step up to a new one if you want to spend the extra $$$.

Professional quality espresso

rangoonsm, Ebay

  • Summary: Excellent espresso for the coffee fanatic. And better, faster, more cost effective than Starbucks. Professional quality. These machines are built to last. My first was built in 1976, and it's still going strong.

Better than expected.

ron mangas jr, Amazon
10 May 2013
  • Summary: I love this thing. into my 2nd month now, and I am getting better with it every day. It is a very cool machine, and clearly capable of making excellent espresso. It is also very easy to get wrong. Pay attention to every detail, measurement, the bean, the grind, the tamp, etc etc etc..

Great espresso

jgoode, Amazon
28 March 2013
  • Summary: I have now owned my La Pavoni PC-16 for a bit over two years. I researced this machine heavily before deciding to purchase it. I was well aware that it would take lots of practice and time to perfect. Getting the right grind was every bit as challenging as learning to operate the machine itself. However, once I did, I have not been disappointed.

best ever!

  • Summary: i bought this pavoni to replace a machine i bought in italy in the early 80s and have used nearly every day since! the old one is now relegated to providing parts when needed, and the new one is just the same quality - i love the mechanical machines - no noisy pumps, nothing to break...

A Member Of The Family

Bob Toddler, Amazon
30 December 2012
  • Summary: After 15 years of near daily use, I thought it was time for me to relay my experiences and opinion on the La Pavoni PC-16. This review is for the pre millenium model. The current production model does have slight differences with the group being slightly larger I was a bartender and barista for about 3 years in a high volume cafe and bar, and believe that this gives me a reasonable level of proficiency in making espresso and espresso based drinks.

La Pavoni expresso machine

grandma of six, Amazon
13 August 2012
  • Summary: I was totally unhappy with the coffee maker as it leaked upon the first use and was then told by the seller when I returned it that they were not sure it was even the one they sent me since it had been "used". We only tested it once to see if it worked. After all of this the seller held 15% of the total cost (over $150.00 was not returned to me).
