Whether you are looking to cut down on trips and cash spent at your local coffee cafe, or simply curious and wanting to become a better personal barista, investing in your own espresso machine can be a daunting, but well worth it task.

La Pavoni is the ultimate in home espresso makers, having been a top, world-wide contender for decades and decades. Not only are the Pavoni machines durable and trustworthy, they are beautifully hand-crafted in Italy with the utmost attention to detail. 

The La Pavoni Stradivari Espresso Machine, introduced in 2000, gets its inspiration from the world-famous violinist Antonio Stradivari. It is the first model introduced from La Pavoni since 1968, and is a celebratory gesture for the brand’s 100 year anniversary. Of course, the La Pavoni Stradivari is high-class and uniquely beautiful for these reasons.

Who is the La Pavoni Stradivari Espresso Machine for?

La Pavoni Stradivari – the beauty queen of the espresso makers. With two models to choose from, you are sure to fall in love with the gorgeous design of this celebratory piece, one specifically featuring lovely rosewood accents with the standard shiny chrome finish of the traditional La Pavoni.

You will enjoy the luxurious experience of using the La Pavoni Stradivari Espresso maker and you may even find that you never crave buying a cup again because making your own is better!
