In celebration of La Pavoni's 100 years producing the finest espresso/cappuccino makers, we are excited to introduce the newest addition to the La Pavoni line.
The design inspiration was drawn from world famous violin maker Antonio Stradavari. The Stratavari has a 38 oz. boiler capacity and makes 16, two oz. cups of espresso. Featurs include a recessed power switch and power button and dual frothing cappuccino systems. It is nickel plated and solid brass boilers are triple chrome plated.
Making high quality espresso with a real espresso machine requires compacting the espresso with a real coffee tamper. While some espresso machines come with an inexpensive coffee tamper, these don't really give the kind of tamping that results in a high quality extraction. We do carry a large selection of attractive heavyweight coffee tampers. Not only will getting one of these coffee tampers give you higher quality, and more consistent results, but they will add to the look of your home espresso bar.
And if you'll be serving espresso, you should serve it in real espresso cups. A coffee cup will pull the heat from your espresso too quickly because of its size, and because of its area, you will lose most of the crema. Most of the crema will stick to the inner surface of a large coffee cup. So take a look at our large selection of espresso cups. And to complete the service of quality espresso, you should also take a look at our large selection of high quality demitasse spoons. It's a nice touch to match the look of your demitasse spoons to your home decor. We have a wide range of designs in spoons from baroque to classical to modern. All are high quality 18/10 stainless steel.
