Posted Thu Dec 19, 2013, 7:24pm Subject: Steam Wand on La Pavoni PC-16
I'm looking into getting a manual espresso machine however if I'm going to spend $700+ on a home brew the wand needs to be up to par. Right now I'm using a Nuova Simonelli (some older model with just one button) I love the way the wand works on this machine and would love to have something similar at home. Any information you can give would be great, my shop has one of the PC-16s for sale but I doubt the owner would let me test the wand as he only has one. If the wand isn't that great I'll probably just end up going with a ROK manual machine and try to design my own steam frothing system. I have some engineer friends and I'm sure they could let me know if my concepts will work.
