La Pavoni Professional Espresso Machine
The La Pavoni Professional Espresso Machine was introduced in 1975, following the introduction of the original in 1968. Hand-made with the best materials, this is an iconic work of art. Available in chrome, gold or brass finish. The gold model is infused with real 22 karat gold during a 3-step process, which bonds the gold pigment at 350 degrees. A protective lacquer coating is then added. The combination of a beautiful finish with wooden accents makes a bold statement, reminiscent of old world coffee shops.
It features a 16 cup capacity, making 1 or 2 cups at a time, a steam wand and an additional automatic frother. Discover what makes the La Pavoni Professional one of the best selling espresso machines in the world.

The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because the arm is very wiggly and at this price point, there should be no plastic whatsoever on the machine. The inlay of the tray is made from plastic and while nit picky it bothers me. The instructions aren’t very good, but comiso has EXCELLENT a service. I mean they answer the phone and they help you. It’s incredible. The machine itself if beautiful and produces the most flavorful and frothy espresso.
We had this copper/brasss machine and made thousands of excellent cups of espresso. When it was with problems, I repaired it completely with piston, gaskets, seals, and all you imagine is inside! Finally going out in a few more cups (ho ho, a few?) we got the chrome machine and it was just not as good overall, probably the boiler components/metal? Tried 2 Brevilles, a Musica (bad news) and now will get another of this model in copper/brass. It allows control and feedback with any blending you want to do, is fun to use, no electronics to go &^%$^&*$$$...even (did you know?) you can if you dare even adjust the thermostat for temperature? Pressure gage is accurate and another indicator...what else could you want? Someone to pull the shot??!! Go for it!
This firm is EXCELLENT and can be trusted....travel elsewhere at your own risk but take a stove-top moka cheapie for the interim!! Dave.
Our household gifted this machine to ourselves for the 2020 holidays and we look forward to years of espresso enjoyment from it. The machine arrived securely packed and included the steamer cup and espresso shot glasses packed in the main box. We are pleased with the quality of the machine and the clarity of the instruction manual. After cleaning the machine according to Comiso Coffee’s La Pavoni care instructions, we were able to pull a decent first shot (we are novice baristas). There’s a lot of nuance to learn and we look forward to getting better at using and knowing our machine. Thankfully there’s a world of supportive articles and videos on the internet. That said, our first few tries have been the same quality we’ve had out at coffee shops around town!
If you like the challenge of mastering control of all of the variables that contribute to a great espresso, this machine will delight you. It works great, very fun, and makes a cup faster than I expected
