Write a Review for the La Pavoni Pro Lever
Most of us don't get to operate much manual machinery - the Pavoni Pro provides the opportunity - an opportunity  to learn, enjoy and produce some pretty good espresso.

You know you’re on to a winner when you say I want one of those and the shop salespeople give you a funny look.  “.....No Sir, surely you want something a little more convenient, with a consistent electric pump… those lever thingies look great but …and...

La Pavoni Professionals are beautiful and functional machines.  However like any other "from scratch" cooking technique it takes time to develop the skills and master the machine.  Don't be intimidated by it.  It is not difficult, and if you buy a can...

You can rate the quality of this review on our conclusion page.

In this detailed review, we'll be looking at several key factors, discussing each one at length:

  • Product Overview, including our initial impressions of the chrome peacock, some history of the device, published specifications, materials and build, and some notes from the company's literature as well as third party resources.

  • Operation and Maintenance,  which looks at the everyday workability of the machine, how to get the most out of it, and more. We put the machine through the paces and point out things we liked and don't like, as well as how easy (or difficult) it is to maintain.

  • Machine Performance is where we get down to the serious issues of how the machine performs as compared to other espresso machines. We also evaluate our expectations of the machine and whether or not it delivers.

  • Comparisons will have head to head looks at the La Pavoni Professional and some competing machines.

  • Conclusion is where we provide our final say on this product, and our recommendations and ratings.

We'll also be evaluating this machine for what it is - a manual machine that requires a lot of hands-on use.

This was one of our more favoured reviews in recent memory, I can't remember having more fun with a product, except for maybe the Elektra Micro Casa, and most of my helpers with this review concurred. There's almost something magical about using a manual product like this, if you're really into espresso.
