However, this rich history is not all there is to be said for the La Pavoni brand. Pioneers in production techniques including the use of thermoplastics, the company combines its extensive experience with an outlook focussed on innovation, research and excellence. Great attention has been paid to ergonomics, as well as to research into new technological developments. Alongside the more traditional lever and semiautomatic machines, La Pavoni introduced electronic machines and have incorporated volumetric dosing across some of the range.
Catering to both the domestic and commercial markets, they have a staggering array of products on offer. For the home coffee lover or cafe owner, a choice of lever, semi-professional, combined and manual machines ensure there is something for everyone, from the traditionalist to the connoisseur in a hurry. Not every La Pavoni espresso machine’s for sale, however; an original version of the La Pavoni Professional Espresso Machine is on permanent display in the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
