    Hi all, New member of this forum and a big fan of espresso, although quite new to home brewing. I'm lucky enough to have a great little coffee shop across the road but they aren't open before I go to work, I like to tinker with stuff so I'm restoring a classic espresso machine to make my...

    Hi All, I am using Smith Alan food grade grease on the LA pavoni group head and the piston etc. On paper this grease is superior but within 2 days of greasing the group head the piston gaskets become really sticky and makes it hard to pull the lever. What grease do you use and how long does...

    This is the second of two concurrent topic threads I'll be doing to account for the two machines that arrived today! After two weeks in Portuguese customs I finally received my La Pavoni P67. I was specifically keeping an eye out for this model after missing one on sale a few years back, and I...
  5. Wanted
    As the title suggests I am looking for an old and preferably vintage La Pavioni Europiccola that can become my next project and I can strip down and restore. I don't have any experience restoring espresso machines but I am looking for a new project, I prefer lever machines (I already own a...

    I am currently looking to purchase my first espresso machine and I'm hoping you guys could help. If you could go back and have your first coffee machine experience again, what would you do differently? What machine do you wish you'd bought? I should note I'm open to any machine, I just want a...

    Having had a discussion in the New Members section, I'm interested in a well cared for La Pavoni Lever Machine. Being new to this, a model with the relevant modifications already done would be preferable if anyone has one available
  8. Sold
    2008 La Pavoni Professional along with many accessories, too many to list, £220, buyer must collect as I am a Disabled guy and it would be impossible to pack and send. The machine has had extras put on as you can see from the pics, the only thing wrong with it is that some of the chrome has...

    Don't know what I was thinking, sold the La Pav last week and got the Silvia back in the kitchen, really regretting it already, so will most likely get another lever, I don't think there was anything I disliked about the La Pav to start with so probably going back to another La Pav. Now that...

    So up for sale is my lovely pre-mil La Pavoni Professional. Bought 6months from Joey it has had fairly light use for about 5-10 coffees a week. Every few weeks I've popped the shower screen and piston out for cleaning and a light re-grease and its been descaled two or three times if I remember...
  11. Valuations (What's it worth?)
    Just throwing this out there as to what people think it might be worth and I guess someone might show some interest. Due to current financial reasons I'm thinking about selling my lovely La Pavoni that I bought in December last year from Joey who had serviced it and done some of his magic with...

    Following an abortive coffee van venture, I am disposing of everything i gathered a few years ago, as I need the room and they're sat, unused: LaPavoni Lever LPG Dual Fuel 2-group This may not be the best place for a full pro machine such as this, but I'm a long-time member so thought I...

    Does anyone know where there are description/pics/videos of how to take an old Europiccola Professional boiler off and replace it with a new one, I have trawled the internet that I know and can't find anything, so does anyone else know, I have never done it before and not being the best at...

    Having purchased a 49.5mm Pullman tamper from @coffeechap I was sadly excited to finally get a chance to use it today. To my dismay it's too big for the microcasa basket I use. I could use the original basket but that only holds 12-13g where the microcasa holds 15g. Does anyone know where I...

    My old faithful Gaggia Classic had got far too scaled up. A lesson learned, use bottled water. It was time for a new coffee machine, but what to get. After much dilemma about whether a lever machine would be suitable or not, especially when I had guests, I decided against it. My wife...

    So, now that I have both, both made on the same year of 2012 and only months older than each other, I can compare them all. I get that the Pro has a bigger boiler and in theory better steaming ability. But, am I the only one who finds steaming milk on the Pro awkward? The boiler having a...
