Greetings!

I'm in the market to upgrade my espresso maker and am interested in a lever press. I was wondering, aside from the larger capacity and pressure gauge, is there a difference in the quality and/or durability between the La Pavoni 8 cup and 16 cup versions?

For the amount of espresso I drink the 8 cup Europiccola would suffice but I want to know if this would be at the sacrifice of better quality from the 16 cup Professional.

Thanks

Unless you feel that you need the boiler pressure gauge or if you like milk in your coffee (and need the steaming power), go for the larger Pro / 16-cup version. Otherwise you'l be just as happy (or unhappy) with the smaller version. I ended up with the 16-cup version because of the amazing deal I got, but I was actually looking for the 8-cup version.

Br,
