High style Italian chrome and curves meets carefully crafted rosewood knobs and lever handles for the exacting performance that is La Pavoni's trademark. The La Pavoni Stradivari is not only beautiful machine, but represents the third collaboration between industrial designer Carlo Gallizi. The design inspiration was drawn from the works of world famous violin maker Antonio Stradivari. The fluid sweeping motion of the lever accentuates the subtle curves of the base and the power button is recessed for a clean appearance.
I love my La Pavoni Stradivari! I had some experience using my friend's lever machine, so thankfully I knew how to use one. If you're an absolute beginner, you'll need some practice. But I actually think they're really funny to use! Relatively light weight, doesn't take up too much counter space, and makes the BEST espresso. I highly recommend.
