  1. Hey guys, I currently have a nespresso, I really want to get into the espresso hobby and I have been reading a lot for a few months while I have been looking for a good deal on a coffee machine. I don't live in the UK and here in Portugal is not that easy getting used machines or even good brand new ones. I have been waiting for the Duo Temp Pro to be on sale again, but yesterday I found a used La Pavoni Professional with around 5 years and seems to be in perfect state and has been serviced a few months ago for £175, which seems like a great deal. I have been reading on it and since I wo
  2. Hi guys, I'm selling my La Pavoni Europiccola Pre Millennium Nov 1978 model and the pressure gauge and the adaptor were both fitted to it. I'm looking for £25 for both including postage. Thanks Tony
  3. AFAIK Norvin has not made funnels for La Pavoni PFs, but wondering if anybody has one to sell?
  4. I just recently joined the La Pavoni Lever Machine Owners Facebook page. Some new developments were there that I hadn't seen before. One involved the pre-millenniums adding a plug behind the group head and cutting a hole in the dipper tube to make the group head water heated instead of steam heated. https://www.home-barista.com/repairs/heat-control-of-1984-la-pavoni-professional-t40936-40.html As a side note....IMS SCREENS AND BASKETS FOR LA PAV! YAY!
  5. it seems once it gets past a certain fine setting it doesn't put any grinds out whatsoever. All the motions are made, and it sounds as though the burrs are rotating, however no coffee comes out. I feel like i need a finer grind, as am producing no crema whatsoever with the La Pav. Any advice?
  6. For sale is my La Pavoni Professional in excellent working condition. This machine has only been fed volvic water and regularly greased with food grade grease. Purchased in December 2017 from fatboyslim this machine has served me very well and is capable of producing extremely sweet, syrupy shots consistently highlighting the natural level pressure profile in every shot. I have installed a precision IMS shower screen and IMS double basket. This machine is visually in excellent condition, there is some black tape on the right side of the group to allow use of an IR thermometer to measure
  7. Long story short, over a couple of days my La Pav Pro began playing up. Then yesterday it stopped heating. I PM'd jimbojohn55 and sought advice. It has now got complicated, not least because the innards in my machine do not seem the same as the pics and expanded diagrams at The Espresso Shop website, nor indeed pics on this forum. Refer to pic below. So following Jimbo's advice, using a multi meter I found that I had power to terminal labelled 1 from the illuminated switch. There was no power from terminals 2,3 and 4 between them and earth or neutral. Changing the multi meter to measu
  8. hey all, so Im rather taken by the la pavoni euro and was really considering a gaggia classic also. Ive found a la pavoni on ebay close to me and have offered 188 GBP without shipping. I believe its the newest model. How does this sound to you all? Id also be interested in hearing what people would recommend, am I better looking at older one? I was initially considering the older premillenium as I didnt like the sound of a plastic/sleeve/liner and plastic piston, but with this newer machine being close by Im considering this one. Honestly Im not liking the sounds of a plastic pisto

  10. Hello.... Ladies/Gents... Recently my La Pavoni, keeps blowing the fuses in my house ! So I decided to investigate.... Horrible horrible amounts of limescale, I couldn't believe the quantity of limescale, so I started to clean everything before investigating the real problem. The problem I think must be; the heating element which is shorting out, or the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is not the type with the reset button. I doubt the on/off switch is failing, so it can only be either the thermal fuse, or element... My machine is from around 1984/7 ? It has
  11. received this from espresso services, spare parts for La Pavoni parts http://www.theespressoshop.co.uk/offers.aspx?PartnerID=26&utm_source=irp&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=13_la-pavoni-sale-now-on_2016-05-25_14-16
  12. Looking to buy a lever machine, currently have a classic but would like to try both against each other. Probably looking at a La Pavoni Europiccola or professional if the budget stretches to that. Would be looking to pay £150-£200, not really wanting one which needs work done as not that handy with machines. Seen on a previous wanted thread a couple of people said they had levers they might sell. Live in Glasgow and wary of couriers but realise it'd be unlikely any would come up local. If anyone has one local to Glasgow would appreciate having a play on one.
  13. Hi All I am dipping my toe into the coffee forum for the first time, looking for some advice. Had a search of previous posts but can't find an answer to my particular query. I have just had to throw away my 15 yr old Krups combi espresso/filter machine and I want to replace it with a simple but effective semi-auto espresso machine. I drink mostly espressos, americanos and my wife occasionally has cappuccinos or flat whites. I have had the Sage Duo Temp Pro recommended to me but I have also recently discovered the fab looking La Pavoni Puccino on a couple of UK retailers' sites.
  14. I've converted my other half into liking coffee (well, my coffee anyway..) but she only wants a single shot cappa. I always pull doubles (like everyone else..) Does anyone have a single shot (7g) basket knocking about they don't want? It'll be the 51mm not the 49mm. Ta muchly
  15. Is there a condition known as La Pavoni Elbow? I think I've got it. Seriously, though, should pulling a shot really take that much force?
  16. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/la-pavoni-professional-1-8-lt-chrome-espresso-maker-110V-/371468874927?hash=item567d4534af:g:WZkAAOSwFnFWDpJ7 someone might be near, worth a punt? I'd like a working one but wouldnt trust myself with it
  17. Located in Duluth, GA, Chocolate Perks is a very down to earth shop that serves fine pastries and chocolates from local vendors. The scenery is beautiful and the employees will melt your heart with both drinks and words of praise. If you are looking for an easy going shop with mellow music, live and PA fed, and art from personal artists around the state, this is the place to be. Beans are all organic and direct trade. Don't miss out on it. I feel so at home there. The machine they use is a La Marzocco Linea with two La Pavoni bean grinders. Feel free to walk in and show off your latte art anyt
  18. Where is the best place to get La Pavoni spares in the UK? Thanks
  19. Come across the ascaso arc stainless steel at fairfax for £199. Macine specs look really good: brass boiler & brewhead plus solenoid valve (I think). Anybody have opinions on this machine or Fairfax? I was looking at a Silvia, but for £200 less, this seems a very good machine. Fair fax also has a La Pavoni at £335, which again seems a good price/machine. Thoughts/opinions welcome! thanks
  20. Hi looking for some idea's on what I could use temporarily for a tamper. Just got a La Pavoni today, it's post millennium so I believe 51mm. Haven't got a tamper to fit, I have enquired about one from CC but itching to try a coffee tonight, looked round the house and nothing seems to fit. Any idea's appreciated.
  21. Usually I've been dosing at 16g, with as fine a grind and as light a tamp to give a mouse tail when giving a good pull. Decided to try 15g instead to get a 1:2 ratio (Square Mile, Red Brick) and ground a little too fine as I was lifting the back of the La Pavoni up when pushing down on the lever. Managed to get drips out to start with, eventually getting a trickle but it took a while. Persevered as I didn't want to have a sneezing fit all over the counter. 15g>30.2g. Surprised at how good it tasted.. Got fruity cherry and caramel out, checked the packet and that's what it said. It was
  22. Hello everyone! I've just received an ancient model of the La Pavoni Professional (looks like full-brass exterior, with lots of greenish and/or white corrosion) which is in terrible condition. I've looked for videos of de-scaling old, unused machines, but none of them even closely resemble what I see in my La Pavoni. If anyone knows, can you tell me if the La Pavoni's boiler was always made from nickel-plated brass, and is it safe to use citric acid on all models? The residue in the boiler is a pile of light brown, 2mm thick material, that looks a lot like calcium deposits, just.. brown

    La Pavoni

    Hi all just a question as to what dose people are putting into a double and one pull or two. i dose 15-16 g and do one pull. Wondering am I right or wrong tastes fine to me
  24. 2008 La Pavoni Professional along with many accessories, too many to list, £220, buyer must collect as I am a Disabled guy and it would be impossible to pack and send. The machine has had extras put on as you can see from the pics, the only thing wrong with it is that some of the chrome has come off the boiler and the boiler needs tightening, have a tool for that which is yours if you want it. I have used it since 2018 and the coffee is just the best, I have a spinal injury and am unable to pull the main arm down so pointless hanging onto it when someone else could have the pleasure.
  25. Hi All I have a post-2000 Europiccola which has always had a slight leak from around the safety valve. The valve itself does not appear to be leaking, rather it seems to come from around the bolt that attaches the valve to the boiler. So I have taken it apart to investigate, and discovered that it seems to be missing a washer: part number 65 on the parts diagram (as per this link https://www.theespressoshop.co.uk/en/La-Pavoni-Lever-Spare-Parts/cc-33.aspx) which I have now ordered. However, it is not clear from the diagram if this washer fits on the outside of the boiler, or th
