Write a Review for the La Pavoni Pro Lever
Like an Italian supercar, it might be expensive, heavy on maintenance - but you buy one for the difference it makes in your life.

More of Bernard Murphy's Review:
I paid virtually full-price for this machine three years ago, naively perhaps not trusting international shipping from Italy.

I bought the Pavoni after a lot of thought, having consigned my last el-cheapo machine to the bin when a small part (lost by...
My mornings start with a meditation on the art of pulling espresso -- a great start to the day

More of David Schlesinger's Review:
This machine is not for the impatient or the huge party giver. It is for the person who wants to be a full, complete part of the process of making espresso/cappuccino, who wants his or her effort, skill, strength, timing to be rewarded or punished as...

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.
