La Pavoni's "budget" lever machine, it features a two stage heating system, manual piston lever control, and an 8 cup capcity.

Bottom Line: Owning a La Pavoni Europiccolo is very much like owning an expensive Italian sports car: It's beautiful to look at, and when it works, you feel really great. But if you aren't a mechanic, be ready to pony up regularly for maintenance.
