Crew Review: La Pavoni Stradivari 16

One of the first demonstration videos we did was Gail using how to pull a shot on the La Pavoni Europiccola 8 manual/lever espresso machine, which we followed up on several months later by demonstrating that same machine’s steaming functionality.

We recently decided to take the Stradivari 16 out for a stroll to see how it compared to the other version. Watch as Gail pulls shots, steams and uses the included cappuccinatore attachment with this machine.

    Do you know if the cappucinatore attachment will work on an Olympia Cremina 2002?

      We don’t know if it will fit or if you can purchase it separately, but the importer — European Gift — would be able to tell you. Their number is 914-664-3448.

    Gail, Gail, Gail,

    Rotate the shot glasses between each pull and then you will have a “balanced shot.”

      So should we pull more than once? We found the shots over-extracted when we did that and were better when we pulled it a single time.
