Competition Series

Expertly crafted by hand, the Esperto Abile is one of the finest home lever espresso machines you could own. Machined by hand precisely to the highest identical specifications guaranteeing you a work of art. These machines feature custom components and come with top-of-the-line filters for an elevated espresso experience.

Temperature Strip

The temperature strip on the group head of the espresso machine is a crucial tool for ensuring that you are pulling shots at the ideal temperature. This strip provides a clear indication of the current temperature, allowing you to make necessary adjustments to achieve the perfect extraction.

Mounted Group Pressure Gauge

The mounted group pressure gauge for pressure profiling is a valuable tool that allows baristas to closely monitor and adjust the pressure during the brewing process. This gauge provides real-time feedback on the pressure exerted on the coffee grounds, enabling baristas to fine-tune their technique for optimal extraction. Overall, this tool empowers you to take control over every aspect of the brewing process, resulting in a more precise and high-quality espresso experience.

Manometer Mounted

This espresso machine includes a pressure gauge for monitoring boiler pressure, which varies from 0 to 2.5 bar. The manual advises maintaining the boiler pressure within the range of 0.6 to 1 bar, ensuring that the water temperature inside the boiler reaches around 94 degrees Celsius.

Style and Heritage

Easily pull shots with the fine crafted topped with an eagle espresso machine. Esperto line features a large 16 cup output, 38 oz. nickel plated boiler, a mounted boiler pressure gauge and two frothing systems (mounted polished steam wand & cappuccino automatic attachment).

Competition Filters

The perforation of the competition filters features consistently precise 0.30 mm holes that are evenly distributed. The surface is enhanced through electropolishing, removing iron oxide and creating a smoother, shinier material. This method not only enhances the overall appearance but also improves the perforation quality compared to standard methods. Each filter undergoes individual testing and is labeled with the La Pavoni mark.

Eagle on Top

Decorate your bar with this classic eagle top espresso machine, it easily fits over the boiler knob to add a touch of class.

Custom Wooden Handles

This espresso machine comes with custom rosewood handles on the lever and portafilter along with wooden accents on the steam knob.

Manual Espresso Maker

An espresso lever machine, or manual espresso maker, uses a hand-operated lever to brew espresso. In contrast to contemporary automated models, lever machines empower you to oversee the entire brewing procedure. The basic principle remains consistent: pressurize a small quantity of water through finely ground coffee beans to yield a potent and flavorful cup of espresso.

While there is a learning curve and regular maintenance required, the dual frothing cappuccino systems and large boiler capacity make it a great choice for entertaining or for use at home or in a small café. It has a small footprint so it can easily be set up on your kitchen counter.
