la Pavoni Romantica PC-16

la Pavoni PC-16
$1,099.00

Review Date - 06/24/2014
I got my La Pavoni Pro 16 about 14 years ago. I've pulled 3 or 4 doubles per day every day since then.......mostly made into cappuccinos. To date, all I've had to do is change the bronze bushing and pins in the lever fulcrum points. They were worn out after 12 years of pulling on that lever. While I was ordering parts I also threw in a group head seal and gasket kit. I figure (at Charbucks' p ... read more

bought my first Pavoni from the factory in Milan in 1973 for $100. and used it daily. It was retired to the basement when It needed gaskets that were not available. Then I bought another one from someone who didn't know how to use it for $125. I bought a Creamina 65 for about $650 and still use it every day. Meanwhile I had the Pavoni rebuilt for $250. around 1993 and use it in my vacation home. I ... read more

We have been using the ROK for almost three months and are getting very consistant results. We had to learn a slightly coarser grind of coffee is needed than with the semi-automatic and that will vary a little with each new type of coffee. The main lesson we learned has to do with frothing the milk. We were not getting the dry froth we like from the gadget that came with the ROK and invested in ... read more

Handpresso Auto Espresso Machine

Handpresso Auto
$149.00

Review Date - 10/08/2014
This worked better than I’d expected. Blitheringly easy to use and assemble, the envy of everyone else watching me in the rest area parking lots. Only downsides are the length of time it takes to brew (>3 min. to heat and pressurize), that you have to keep your engine running, shot is not piping hot, and that no house-current adaptor is available. But for 30 cents a pull as opposed to over a buck ... read more

Handpresso Wild Hybrid

Handpresso Wild Hybrid
$129.99

Review Date - 09/16/2013
I received this about 6 weeks ago and found it to be exceptionally well-made. The rubber coating on the bowl was particularly satisfying. Must be some kind of nano-material, I didn't know rubber could feel like teflon. The handle is a high-quality metal, stainless steel I presume. Tended to slip in my hands as I pumped, so it could use some non-slip surface. Very nice pressure gauge. I'm surprised ... read more

Review Date - 11/07/2014
I bought this for traveling. I like being able to use my own ground coffee instead of pods and the machine is very easy to use. I read the reviews and also got the optional intense portafilter. I did try both the standard and the intense for comparison. The optional filter seems important, though it might not be if you have a much higher quality grinder than I have. I'm still not getting a lo ... read more
