La Pavoni’s Europicola EPC-8 espresso machine is the perfect combination of sleek design and valuable. While it takes some repetition and practice to get things just right, actual operation is quite easy, so you don’t have to comb through complicated user manuals. Just lift the lever that raises the piston to facilitate pressurized water to blend with coffee in the filter holder and just lower the lever to get frothy, delicious drinks, as it pushes out the finished beverage into the cup. It can produce 8 espressos 2oz cups with a single water reservoir fill.

Sturdy Steel Construction with Triple Chrome Plating

With a solid steel base and triple chrome plating on the outside, the machine retains its elegant appearance for a long time. The inside of the base is also polished to avoid problems related to moisture accumulation. ABS black plastic has been used in constructing the drip tray, while the portafilter is made with chrome plated brass and equipped with a sturdy black plastic handle.

Enhanced Portability 

Even with the high end construction, the machine is portable and lightweight, which makes it convenient to store in limited spaces. The clean lines and low-profile design allows you to easily house them under kitchen cabinets or cupboards for storage.

Brass Boiler

The boiler has a capacity of up to 20 ounces of water, and it takes about 6 minutes to heat up. It is made of brass with a chrome plated exterior, while the inside has food safe nickel plate. The biggest advantage is the absence of wait time between brewing and steaming. To regulate boiler temperature, a pressure controller is incorporated for fast response. The “on and off cycle” goes on like clockwork, with a pressure range between 0.7 to 1 bar. A sight glass is located on the left side of the machine, so you can watch the water level of the boiler.

Safety Features

When the boiler pressure becomes too much to handle, a safety valve situated on the right hand side opens automatically to release the pressure buildup. In case the boiler gets overheated, there is a thermal fuse to shut it off at 225°F so it can be reset. Please turn it off when not in use.

Shelf Life & Maintenance

To ensure the exterior looks shiny and new all the time, you need to preserve the lacquered finish properly. Cleaning should only be done with a soft cloth, while the boiler needs to be decalcified every 6 months. Depending on the time the boiler is left on; the gaskets should be replaced every 3 to 5 years. The stainless steel food safe heating element can resist rust and corrosive buildups, thereby boosting shelf life and durability.

Single Point of Control

There is just one power switch that begins the operation. Once you switch it on, it lights up and begins to heat the boiler. There is a green temperature ready light to indicate when the machine is heating.

Steam Wand Eliminates Wait Time

If you prefer milk based drinks, the EPC-8 does a great job frothing with its three hole commercial style wand. It eliminates the waiting time between steaming and brewing, allowing you to enjoy quick and easy foamy beverages.

Cappuccinos and lattes are now available from the privacy of your home – use the EPC-8 to experiment while creating beverages with different flavorings and aroma. It is extremely popular and has received praises and glowing reviews from customers, which has greatly spiked its demand.

IMPORTANT: Water quality is a very important aspect of your espresso machine longevity. Water that is too hard will cause limescale buildup, which is the number one reason for operating problems. Too pure water, such as ultra pure RO water or distilled water can cause the machine to overfill, since the water level probe needs some minerals in the water to detect water. Use softened water that is about 50ppm in hardness. More info

PLEASE NOTE: Most machines and grinders are inspected for damage after being shipped from overseas. This means most boxes will have signs of being opened even though they are brand new products. This is done to ensure that the equipment made the international shipment in good condition and working order.

COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT NOTE: Most commercial equipment ships on a pallet and has to be bench tested prior to shipment. For this reason, commercial equipment usually ships out three to five business days after the order is received. Some commercial equipment is also special order and/or has limited availability, so please check with us prior to placing an order.
