La Pavoni

Posted by – January 18, 2015

In early January, I took the plunge and purchased the espresso machine “La Pavoni”. It is the biggest investment I have ever made for a coffee machine. However, I hope one day she could understand its worth the money ($800) for a serious manual espresso machine.

According to the internet, the learning curve of this machine can be quite steep and it would take a good while before I can pull a good shot. Unsurprisingly,  the shots I pulled so far are quite bad, and it is still a long way to even just to match the taste of Starbucks’ coffee.

I will post updates when I get the hang of it with better shots. Please stay tuned.

    Those machines are really hard to use and you cant easily do per-infusion. When I come over next month I will have a try. If you really can’t get it going I will swap it for my Y13,000 crap machine I brought last summer

      How is it going in New Zealand?

      I am starting to get the hang of it now, the problem was mainly over-dose and temperature control of the grouphead.

      If you stop by my house next month, I will make an espresso for you.
