The wand is delicate.
Just purchased the la Pavoni Lusso, added some beans from Strada Cafe in Berkeley CA. Wow did it turn up the best crema. The frother worked powerfully and produced the best-steamed milk. Always have been impressed with La Pavoni and their reputation. The Lusso has a pod attachment tried it and works wonderfully. What amazed me the first espresso I pulled was the power and girth this little machine has. If you car about looks this also meets the criteria. not only does it produce great espresso it looks classy in the kitchen.
I walked into Claros Italian Deli in San Gabriel Ca and purchased the La Pavoni Lusso. I highly recommend this place for their low prices on Italian espresso machines. Regularly online its about 500. The store sold it for 400. GREAT!
