With stay-cool black handles.
La Pavoni Lusso with Black Lever
This Professional Lusso comes with black handles that stay cool as the machine heats, a drip tray, as well as a sight glass that lets you keep an eye on the amount of water in the tank, so you know when to refill it. A pressure gauge over the tank lets you know when it’s time to start brewing, and a steam wand lets you release ‘false’ pressure and foam milk. Includes:
- Single and double dose filter baskets (interchangeable in the portafilter)
- Coffee scoop
- Additional steam wand for cappuccino attachment

La Pavoni created the first espresso machine for home use, and their expertise remains unparalleled. The Professional Lusso, first released in 1977, is an icon of modern design, and the mechanisms have remained virtually unchanged since because it lets you pull truly divine shots of espresso. The word ‘pull’ is literal here: The lever mechanism provides the pressure needed to extract coffee, and how you pull – as well as the size, dose and freshness of the coffee grounds – are variables you can calibrate to make espresso to your taste. The process is simple: Turn the machine on, prepare coffee in the portafilter, attach, lift, and pull down. But it takes some practice to get right, which is why we put together this comprehensive guide. It’s 100% worth the effort, because this machine lasts forever.
If you're serious about coffee, especially espresso, a top-quality coffee grinder like the La Pavoni Cilindro Prosumer is key. It features a hopper on the top that holds up to 600g of coffee beans and an anti-slip base, but its crowning feature is the flat hardened steel burrs. This results in a very uniform grind that is crucial for good espresso. With a powerful 50mm burr diameter and a speed of about 1.4 grams a second, it is an efficient machine.
Why we love it
This set lets you grind beans straight into a portafilter and pull what baristas call 'the God shot'—not uncommon in La Pavoni's iconic espresso makers. Made in the same Milan factory, they match in both aesthetics and quality.
