Your la Pavoni Romantica PC-16 Espresso Machine
Owning the la Pavoni Romantica PC-16 Espresso Machine
The Romantica Professional espresso machine by La Pavoni has a chrome base, steam pressure gauge and is triple plated to maintain its beauty and elegance. By lifting the lever, a piston inside the group is raised allowing water under pressure to infuse the coffee in the filter holder. The lever is then lowered causing the piston to force the water through the coffee into your espresso cup. Make one or two cups of perfect cafe quality espresso! The machine has a water level site gauge located on the side of the machine. Capable of making 16, 2oz cups. Make all of your favorite cappuccinos or lattes with a machine that has old world elegant ambiance! Please note that these machines may arrive with moisture, water marks, fingerprints or tooling marks due to factory testing. Instructional DVD included! Available in Chrome.
The large capacity boiler holds up to 38 ounce of water and is capable of making 16 two ounce cups of espresso. The boiler is made of brass and is chrome plated on the outside. The food safe inside of the boiler is nickel plated. The boiler is ready to brew in about six minutes. Due to the large boiler there is no wait time between steaming and brewing. The boiler temperature is actually controlled with a pressure controller for quick and accurate response. The boiler will cycle on and off consistently and is set to maintain boiler pressure between .7 bar and 1 bar of pressure. The main power switch is the only switch to operate. When turned on the switch will start to heat the boiler. The stainless steel food safe heating element is made to resist corroding and for long lasting durability. On the left of the machine is a sight glass that will let you see the water level of the boiler. The PC-16 comes with a three hole commercial style steam wand, for those of you who like to master the art of frothing. Unlike most home machines where you have to wait in between steaming and brewing, the PC-16 is always ready to go.
There is a thermal fuse that will turn off the boiler if it overheats for any reason. The fuse turns the boiler off at 225F and is easily reset. This valve is located on the right side of the boiler. It is designed to open and release any excessive pressure in the boiler. The exterior has a beautiful lacquered finish therefore any cleaning should be done with a soft cloth. The boiler should be decalcified twice a year with "Cleancaf" by Urnex. La Pavoni recommends that the gaskets should be replaced every three to five years depending on how long the boiler is left on. The boiler should always be turned off when not in use. There are 35 repair facilities throughout the US for any maintenance work.
