DOMESTIC LEVER MACHINES

The art of the "Espresso"

With the lever group you get a perfect utilization of the coffee powders: the hydraulic pre-infusion and the extraction pressure combined with Water’s thermo-compensation are the technical feature of the lever group.
The hydraulic pre-infusion is a mix of water and steam at the pressure of 1 atm, The initial pressure on the coffee powders that are soaked, is soft. The extraction pressure starts from 1 atm rising up to 9 atm and decreasing to 0 at the end of the lowering of the lever. The water temperature during brewing is mixed by the group jacket which carry out a mix between the water in the group and the water withdrawn from the boiler. The espresso has a more intense and thick flavour. A more fragrant and soft smell. An aftertaste that lasts over time.
The cream is less rich because it extracts only the heart of the coffee. A lower caffeine content

DOMESTIC LEVER MACHINES

The good "Cappuccino"

The boiler which has a capacity of 0,8lt or 1,6lt you can obtain the following performance:
1. Instant steam: when the machine is in pressure you have immediately at your disposal the steam without waiting
2. Abiding steam : since the water is in the boiler, the steam is always at disposal to prepare a sequence of cappuccini.
3. Dry steam: in the boiler there are water and steam. Opening the steam tap a dry steam leaves without wetting the milk or other products

The era of "Cappuccino Automatic"
System easily and immediately takes the milk directly from the jug delivering it perfectly frothed and heated into the cup. The system ensures maximum hygiene and requires no manual dexterity from the operator. At the end of the frothing cycle you only need to pump water through the system to remove any milk residues.

An Ideal Beginning with "Ideale", the first Espresso Coffee Machine

La Pavoni Spa was founded in Milan in 1905 thanks to Desiderio Pavoni in a little workshop at Via Parini. His first invention was patented by Luigi Bezzera, on 1st September 1902, duly registered at the Milan State office on 19th September 1903, and gave life to the first espresso coffee machine for bar called "Ideale".

The Revolutionary Horizontal Coffee Machine

In 1948 La Pavoni manufactured its first machine with horizontal boiler.
This project was conceived by Gio Ponti, Antonio Fornaroli and Alberto Rosselli, whose cooperation gave birth to model 47 called "LA CORNUTA" ("The horn") because of its brewing groups standing out from the cylindrical boiler body.

Enthusiasm and Design

1956 saw the creation of the "Concorso" series. This was a project developed by Bruno Munari and Enzo Mari, where the body has a particular design; the modular geometrical parts, put together, enable the building of machines with more than one group, in which the stress is put on the colour matching.

Modern Revolutions

In 1961 the so-called "Brewing" commercial machine was introduced onto the market. The temperature always remains the same, water heats up and - through the brewing groups - is directed onto the pressed coffee, obtaining one or two cups of tasty and creamy coffee.
The cooperation between Alberto Rosselli and Angelo Tito Anselmi gave life in 1961 to a model called "BRASILIA".
In the same year, 1961, developing an idea by a Milanese artisan, the first electrical machine for domestic use was created. This machine could it to brew espresso coffee and hot drinks, just like the way they were made in the coffee bar. That machine was called "Europiccola".

La Pavoni means "Espresso wordlwide"

In 1972 the company realised model "LP" which improved the technical aspect and reliability without disturbing the design.
In 1974, the "Europiccola" was coupled with the new machine, the "Professional", whose boiler enabled to obtain 16 coffees to be made consecutively. This model was equipped with a manometer indicating the boiler pressure.

Myth and development

La Pavoni continued to produce each model both in the lever-operated and continuous-delivery version.
From the early 80's to today, the Pavoni products have been designed by Carlo Galizzi.
