I bought this espresso machine at an estate sale just two weeks ago and was immediately hooked. Its arguably the best version of the vintage La Pavoni Europiccola - the 1974 transitional year.
It has a solid brass tube in the group head, which is attached to the boiler with threads, not bolts. But it also sports the two way rocker switch, allowing one to shift between heating elements or turn the machine off without unplugging it. The machine is in beautiful condition. I made two shots this morning.See how my fingers fly over the keyboard? In short, its ready to go. There are a few minor issues.
Most importantly, the high heating element stopped working this week. I dont know if its wiring or the element to blame. It might be a loose connection, as the light stopped working this morning. Also, I removed one c clip on the group head for maintenance and lost it when it flew across the room. In any case, the machine heats up in about 20 minutes on the low setting and makes coffee and steam.The item "Old Vintage La Pavoni Espresso Coffee Machine Made In Italy 1974 First Gen" is in sale since Saturday, December 12, 2020.
