I bought my La Pavoni after my Gaggia superautomatic machine died and I wanted something that would last longer and provide better espresso. First off, the La Pavoni can provide "God shots" from a person who really knows the machine and has the proper combination of roast, grind size, tamp packing, water temperature and flow rate, etc. The downside is that there is an extremely steep learning curve for getting those shots. Be prepared for being frustrated with sometimes mediocre or even bad shots for weeks. An excellent grinder, such as the Mazer Mini, is required to get consistently excellent shots. Replace the 3-hole frothing tip that comes with the machine with a single hole tip, and you can make terrific latte art. The La Pavoni is geared to a person who wants to be involved in all the details of brewing great espresso and has the patience to learn the idiosyncrasies of the machine. It is definitely not a machine for someone who just wants to press a button to get their morning espresso.
