Hands-On, But Easy To Use

The La Pavoni EPC-8 is a user friendly, piston and steam pressure operated machine, that’s designed to be sturdy and last for a lengthy period of time. It’s the ideal piece of equipment for making high quality cups of coffee at home. What you’ll get in this impressive package is a measuring ladle, screen holder, screen, tamper and cappuccino attachment. Furthermore, the finish on this coffee machine is chrome plated, and has a strong steel build – that’s why you can expect this machine to perform for a very long time.

High Quality Features

Those who like to learn the art of frothing can do so with the La Pavoni EPC-8 because it has a commercial style steam wand. Typically there is a delay between steaming and brewing, but with the La Pavoni Europiccola you have full control over the frothing. The boiler has enough room to make 8 two ounce espresso cups. This means you can serve a large number of people without refilling, a function that is attractive for coffee shops. Additionally, the heating element is made of stainless steel, which is a design that is corrosion proof.

Maintenance Tasks

About 2 times a year the boiler needs to be decalcified using Cleancaf that’s manufactured by Urnex. The outside of the machine should be wiped gently with a soft wet cloth because it has a lacquered finish. Furthermore, the gaskets must be exchanged for new ones at a frequency of 3 to 5 years – this typically depends on how long you leave the boiler on for. To cut down on the need for this maintenance task you should turn the boiler off whenever the machine is not in use.


Strong Build

The machine has a delicate lacquered finished but will last for a very long time due to the strong steel build. Also the inner mechanism of the La Pavonci EPC-8 has a design that isn’t going to break down anytime shortly after first use.

Control Over Foam

Those who like to have a foamy cup of coffee will enjoy the amount of flexibility that the ECP-8 offers. Initially it might be difficult to get the exact amount of foam that you like, but the design is ergonomic enough to allow you to learn very quickly. Learning will be even faster because of the instructional video that comes with the machine.


Less Automation

Some people might not like the amount of user involvement that’s required to make a cup of coffee. Other coffee machines on the market have designs where all you really need to do is press a few buttons and wait for you coffee.

Overall Review

The La Pavoni is the perfect home use coffee machine for those who want maximum control over their foam, and are looking for a machine that’s going to stand the test of time. The design is ergonomically friendly, which means the user can learn how to use it quickly, and then enjoy using it for a very long time.
