  1. Hi All, Took the plunge and went for a Rocket Fausto, which I received last week. To be honest, my results so far haven't been great, with a fair bit of clumping despite my having seen many comments about how the Fausto generates little clumping. I've been trying double shots with an 8.2 second grind time and have dialed the grind setting down to 2. Thus far, the shots I've been pulling through my Pavoni have been watery and fast with little to no crema. Any suggestions about how to minimize clumping and/or what settings to use? Any tips/advice appreciated!
  2. I don't know if anybody else struggles with this but I found it nearly impossible without risking breaking the clips or scratching the plastic or chrome with a screwdriver. I tried some cocktail sticks at first, jamming one in the gap then another behind it to unclip the cover and it worked for the top clip but there wasn't enough room to get at the lower clip. Then I remembered some old plastic membership cards (like credit cards but thinner) and wondered if I could do something with them, and amazingly the answer is yes.. By carefully pulling the unclipped part out slightly, push the co
  3. Got to be an easy fix! £150 Buy it now Europiccola in what looks like great condition near Woodbridge. I would. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/La-Pavoni-Europiccola-Chrome-Expresso-Coffee-Machine-/192270975967?hash=item2cc43e43df:g:lQcAAOSwU1RZibcx
  4. Look like it is in good condition. Keep an eye on it if you are local. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/La-Pavoni-Europiccola-EN-8-Cups-Espresso-Machine-Black-Black-/332305553982?hash=item4d5ef45a3e:g:ZuQAAOSwb~9ZafRt
  5. Woohoo!!! I just got me a Pavoni on ebay! - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/332307790618 My first lever and first espresso machine! Complete noob to espresso really, but I had to give it a try and I love the engineering simplicity and heritage of the Pavoni levers. And the fact that they can make fantastic espresso in the right hands... hopefully mine too eventually! Think this is an 80s machine, no idea what shape it's going to be in so it was a bit of a punt really, but will be happy to strip it down and rebuild as a project if needed. There have been some great threads here lately from
  6. Hey Guys, I've recently fixed up two la pavoni's I've bought on Ebay. The idea was to kinda fix up and learn about Lever Machines as I'm used to a Rancilio Silvia, and sell off the machines I no longer use. After much more repair that I had anticipated, I have gotten them both working, one is a Post-Millennium and another is a Pre-Millennium machine. The Post-Millenium machine I have works beautifully. After a short while I was making what I considered better coffee than my Silvia. It's easier to adjust the slightly course/fine grind with the pressure you manually apply with this m
  7. well it was either going to be pimp my chip pan pavoni or Pimp "my god your greasy" Pavoni I think the Motorhead reference suits the all chrome and grease look that the previous owner was going for... has to be a single bloke this one with a love for deep frying- a life style i can only dream of..........wipes a tear from his eye so on with the initial assessment and the pics - please look away if easily offended
  8. 1962 Pavoni on ebay italia 2nd year of manufacture - even has the original blue rubber base !- owner wants £300 or near offer - sooo tempted but will have to pass https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/la-pavoni-v-1-2-1962/352342360668?hash=item52093dc25c:g:G50AAOSwh9pa2cNF&autorefresh=true
  9. https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/pavoni-coffee-machine/1294683355 Get amongst it at that price. Even if it's borked.
  10. Having 5 pavs in the bunker at the moment and only 4 portafilters gave me the chance to purchase one of the £50 bottomless portafilter that have appeared on-line over the past few months - I can only say what a pleasant surprise the basket is massive 16g with a spring clip, the chrome is quality and the handle is proper Bakelite. Anyway the chance here for a quick comparison old to new - the first was used up to 66-70 the second is the standard 74 till 2000 - the third is the new one. The 66-70has massive depth and can take up to 21g basket but with titchy handle (this one has a sta
  11. Got a bit bored with my old avatar so looking around for something Pavoni related I remembered this clip. Not sure if this has been posted here before and I expect lots of you have seen it but here it is in all it's 70's glory - the La Pavoni Europiccola as demonstrated by James Bond himself in the film Live and Let Die The prop 'espresso' looks very odd and spot the unorthodox steaming technique - espresso in with the milk and the opv tube! These bloopers seem so obvious to us now but of course back then no one would have had a clue. To a British audience this was all new, this

  13. This is the second attempt at documenting my restoration of a Pavoni Europiccola 1977. The previous thread got corrupted and the admin decided to take it offline. This is it, a Europiccola 1977 bought on Ebay for about 150 EUR. There is a bit of rust on the base, but the rest looks good: I will disassemble it and then start documenting the restoration
  14. Hey everyone! A friend of mine just got a new La Pavoni Europiccola. Tried using the machine and it looks like this! Anybody have any idea whats wrong and how to fix this? Video 1: - Is this the pressure valve not being tightened properly as I have been reading around? Video 2: - Is this water flow too fast? Or is this normal without a portafilter? Thanks in advance! Ryan
  15. Hi all, So it's taken me all of a few days being a member on this forum to decide that I want a la pavoni. I just don't want to repeat the mistake I made when buying my gaggia classic and buying a model that I now regret a bit(should've gone pre 2015) So can anyone tell me the differences between the pre-millenium models and post? Which model is the one to go for? I generally make a 1 flat white a day during the week and 2 on weekends. It will be very rare that I need to make more than 2 cups back to back, but planning on keeping the gaggia for when guests come around.
  16. Morning all, What sort of output are people getting using one pull (no fellini etc.) on their millenium machines with a double basket? I find myself getting ~25g from a standard single pull, this is whether I dose 12, 13, even 14 or 15gs. I've done a bit of searching online and from the small amount of info I've managed to find people seem to be getting 30g plus... Thanks, Harry
  17. Interesting article in the 'news' section of Francesco's great site, It features a pre pavoni type Euro a full 3 years before Pavoni put out their first machine. This one was made by Bezzera http://www.francescoceccarelli.eu/Macchine/Bezzera/baby_bezzera/baby_bezzera_eng.htm
  18. Having purchased a 49.5mm Pullman tamper from @coffeechap I was sadly excited to finally get a chance to use it today. To my dismay it's too big for the microcasa basket I use. I could use the original basket but that only holds 12-13g where the microcasa holds 15g. Does anyone know where I can get larger baskets for the pre mil? I'm not convinced the IMS ones are worth the price.
  19. Currently using a Pavoni Pro pre millennium and having had some truly disastrous moments with it I’m interested to hear your tips for a consistently passable pull.
  20. The last bit arrived in the post this week so it seemed like a good time to put this up here. I bought a used Europiccola millennium from @coffeechap in November, it was in great condition. Really a whim as I was pretty curious about how it would compare to my pump machine. It’s been great so far and I’ve finished kitting it out to make it a bit more flash looking... The coffees are shorter and more ristretto like than I’m used to, I’ve quite liked the difference really in terms of being more punchy and syrupy. Once I got the new steam tip on it was pretty good and more powerful than
  21. Hello from a long term lurker - a positive side-effect of being stuck at home is I’ve dragged the La Pavoni out from under the stairs and given my whole setup a spruce up! 2 weeks ago I built this coffee bench which sits in the dead space above our kitchen bins - a big upgrade from trying to steal some counter space. The shelves on the right were my project for this weekend - really chuffed how they turned out. Unfortunately the ply wasn’t great quality so the finish isn’t fantastic, but it’s what I had to hand. Feel like I’ve brought some order to the chaos. Putting the tamper
  22. I have a Gaggia classic that is doing a fine job but i cant stop thinking about getting a Pavoni lever machine. I have never seen one in the flesh nor do i know how the coffee would compare but I think they look great and i like the idea of 'pulling a shot' Has anyone gone from classic to Pavoni? Please can someone talk me into it or out of it?
  23.

  24. Hi, I have acquired a Gaggia Factory G105 (basically a Pavoni Millenium) and need a tamper to go with it. This is very much a second machine (taking on holiday etc) so I don't want to spend a great deal, just something that fits the basket nicely. Any suggestions? @coffeechap
  25. I bought a Europiccola in January and use it sparingly (about one espresso a day). About a week ago it started to leak from the group head. It only leaks for a minute or two losing about 50ml of water and the leak then stops as the machine heats up. It's not affecting the coffee so wondering if its something I can leave alone, or should I get it looked at? Thanks
