La Pavoni manual espresso machines, also known as lever espresso machines, are among the first models to have the pressure capable of making what we know today as espresso. That is espresso produced by forcing water through coffee grounds with high pressure, not steam power.
The popular La Pavoni Europiccola lever coffee machine has a steam pressure, piston operated lever, which makes creating espresso as easy as cocking the bar into position. The Europiccola espresso machine can make up to two espresso shots at a time and comes with two stainless steel filter baskets. This model also incorporates a heat diffuser to help manage unwanted heat buildup.
One of the most popular features of the lever coffee machine is the ability to control something that many other espresso machines cannot control, the steep time of the coffee grounds or how long the water sits over the bed of coffee before it is brewed. In the espresso making industry this is called “pre-infusion.” It is a variable that can be interesting to play with and can truly help you create a cup espresso specifically to your liking.
