Positive Product Points

Temperture control is somehow better than Seaco Classico

Negative Product Points

The temper came with the machine is really useless. I went to coffeetamper.com to order a customized one (51 mm, on the newsletter, some people said 52 mm cannot fit the basket properly, so I got 51mm, and it works Good!)

Detailed Commentary

La Pavoni is Very sensitive on grinding and tamping. I use Rocky, so I can control the grinding quite well. Buy a new tamper that fits the basket well boosts the result! Besides, I bought additional two double basket, so I can operate it quickly when continuous brewing!

You're gonna get a new tamper, even I know a lot poeple still use the plastic one comes with the machine. I need to spend like a min to make a proper tamping, which is a waste of time, and the coffee freshness is degrading by second! If you wanna buy a new tamper, go to coffeetamper.com. They customize the tamper for you.The tamper diameter for the NEW MODEL is 51mm! BUT for the old model is only 48/49 mm, am not sure about that.Beware when buy the tamper!

The machine is dangerous cuz it provides you no protection from the heat it generates. Very dangerous especially when the kid is around!

Buying Experience

Very impressive! the shipment only took 3 days, from Italy to NY. THREE DAYS! Unblievable!!! And shipment free..... FREE!
