La Pavoni. History of a legend.
La Pavoni was founded in 1905 by Desiderio Pavoni in a little workshop in Milan.
His first invention was the filter holder, which brought to the first espresso coffee machine called “Ideale”.
The Revolutionary Horizontal Coffee Machine
In 1948 la Pavoni manufactured its first machine with horizontal boiler.
This project was conceive by Gio Ponti, Antonio Fornaroli and Alberto Rosselli, whose cooperation gave both to model 47,called LA CORNUTA, because of its brewing groups standing out from the cylindric boiler body.
Enthusiasm and Design
This was a project developed by Bruno Munari and Enzo Mari, where the body has a particular design; the modular geometrical parts, enable the building of machines with more than one group, emphasizing the colour matching.
The cooperation between Alberto Rosselli and Angelo Tito Anselmi gave life in 1961 to a model called BRASILIA.
In the same year, developing an idea of a Milanese artisan, la Pavoni launches its first electrical machine for domestic use. This machine could brew espresso coffee and hot drinks, as in coffee bars. That machine was called EUROPICCOLA.
A new era
The Esperto models, latest la Pavoni’s competition machines for Espresso specialists.
The cutting edge model of domestic lever machines.
Valuable materials and the chance of a constant monitoring of the brewing pressure carried out by pulling down the lever, allow even the most demanding users to brew a customized espresso through repeatable extraction curves.
