@coffeechap How does this compare to a Pavoni for making espresso?

It’s a different beast, for espresso it is very repeatable and once you master using a thermo probe or pen, you will be able to adjust for different roast levels. It doesn’t overheat like a Pavoni does and is repeatable with the spring instead of hand pressure. If I could justify keeping it I would, but I really have to sell the levers from the lever day

Really wish I could afford this at the moment as it is indeed a great opportunity. This would suit me so well as I only make espresso and rarely (once a year kind of deal) have the need to steam milk

It’s a shame as this is a very rare opportunity to get one that is so nice .

Yes I know but realistic I won't be able to purchase this before the end October so my only hope is that this is still available then. I recently bought a pavoni that was a bad melon and have been unable to fix it so my coffee budget needs a bit too recover

Can't resist but make an offer on this. After checking my back account I think I could purchase this at the next pay day. So if you don't mind waiting I would like to make an offer of £230

Advertise it for sale to help fund. I’m sure it would get snapped up

Will do. I still had some hopes of recusing it somehow but given I purchased this one I will sell whatever I can of the La pavoni. Probably only worth for someone needing spares though as the boiler has two broken screw which despite my best attempts to remove them have resisted. So unless someone can drill them out and tap the holes I don't see much use for it.

Might be interested at the right price.

Great purchase. I really like the look of this machine and probably traveling the past few days stopped me pulling the trigger. The wife would not have been happy if I bought another lever before getting rid if a few first.
