LA PAVONI Europiccola EL
Europiccola, designed in 1950 and Professional, in 1970, are a sort of mirror of a part of the Italiandesign history.
A combination of style, quality and reliability. In addition to making an espresso “just as you want it”, this machine is equipped with the new “Cappuccino Automatic” attachment, which ensures the perfect cappuccino every time.
The classic lever machine continuously evolving since its introduction.
This machine is largely constructed of cast brass and is built to last.
The large boiler ensures that limescale deposits have minimal effect, meaning minimum maintenance is needed. This model enables to deliver 8 cups of espresso continuously.

Lovely!!! Review by James Lubitz
I got my machine from a friend who had it in her basement unused for 15 years. She bought in in 1981! I spent an hour or two on line to find instruction manuals. Then, with some trepidation, I made my first cup. I had read how complicated the process is, how you need to get the grind and the tamping just right, or else. But, viola, a great espresso the first try. And, it only gets better with experience. (Posted on 3/16/2016)
30yrs & still going Review by Petrusso
I've owned one of these since 1985, used it steadily (though not daily) , and it's still going strong. This is a design that has not needed improvement since the 1920s. Do yourself a favor, and get one of the great eagles that attaches to the top from Pavoni. While it is true that the lever allows you control over the output, the temperature is automatic, with two settings, basically for steam and coffee. You should heat it to the high setting then come back to the lower before brewing. Mine takes a good while to heat up.
One caution: Be sure to left out the plastic tray and dry thoroughly underneath after use, as water can get under there. I didn't always do so, and developed a rust problem, which I fixed with navel jelly, sanding and finally epoxying the bottom section of the tray to the metal base so nothing can get under there.
