La Pavoni EPC-8 Europiccola 8-Cup Lever Style Espresso Machine Review
La Pavoni EPC-8 Europiccola 8-Cup Lever Style Espresso Machine has an all steel construction backed up with heavy chrome plating for long term performance.
With every single pull of the machine’s lever you get a perfect cup of espresso as guided by the directions in the instructional video that it comes with, so if it is your first time there is absolutely no need to worry.
This is a piston operated and steam pressure machine with thermostats that help to observe pressure with re-set fuses, it is further accessorized with a milk foamer, 2 stainless steel filter baskets and a measuring spoon to help you measure the right quantities of your ingredients. It also has a removable 20 ounce capacity water tank and drip tray for easy cleaning. With great ease this stylish machine’s steam wand allows you to enjoy a personally created thick, rich foam and heated milk for the best ever cappuccino and lattes.
- The machine comes with an instruction video to make operation for first time users also simple, it may not be that easy to use the machine of you are a beginner but with the directions in the video it will definitely become simple.
- This espresso machine has very few features compared to the new espresso machines that are engineered with too many features. I put this among the pros because with the few features it has, the machine is extremely effective in brewing a really perfect cup of espresso. This is where quality beats quantity.
- It is perfect for both novice users and experienced users reason being for the novice the machine has a few features that will take you very little time to understand and a directional video to help you out.

- It has a very attractive design, this EPC espresso machine is built with stain less steel which is very sturdy and durable but also importantly add a more attractive appearance to your kitchen.
- It brews up to 8 cups of espresso which is good enough, because other machines can only brew two to four cups and will lag too much between brewing cycles which is very time wasting.
- La pavoni epc-8 europiccola is very tiresome since it is manual, using pressure to pump a cup of coffee yet with other machines it can be done with just the press of button gives this machine less advantage over others.
- It is a bulky and heavy machine, if you are planning on moving the machine up and down then this is surely not the right machine for you. With its weight, you have to place it in a particular place where you can easily access it.
- It misses the auto shut off function, what I love most about this function is that whenever you forget to turn off the machine, it will turn off automatically which saves power and makes the machine last longer. Unfortunately the La pavoni epc-8 europiccola espresso machine misses this function.
