The la Pavoni Napolitana is a semi-automatic espresso and cappuccino maker that is not only beautiful, but built to last. The entire body is made of brass and stainless steel and polished to a beautiful gloss finish. This heavy duty construction is help fight the battle against dreaded heat loss that reduces the crema in your espresso. The Napolitana features stainless steel baskets, a coffee press, and a built-in coffee grinder allowing you to grind your coffee fresh before brewing.
Built in Italy, the home of espresso coffee, the Napolitana features a super quiet ULKA pump that produces 16 bars of pressure guaranteeing creamy espresso every time. The multiple setting conical burr grinders work at low RPM speed to prevent the beans from burning. The latest in coffee dispensing technology allows for the unused water left in the pump to return back into the reservoir, so that every cup tastes fresh. Cappuccino is both quick and plentiful with the pressurized frothing attachment.
You might think that using an all-in-one espresso machine is a chore, but you will be pleasantly surprised at how simple it is to brew excellent espresso. The La Pavoni Napolitana requires minimal user input to grind and brew espresso. On the front, you will notice four controls: a click button for power, one to brew espresso, one to heat to steaming temperature, and a knob to open the steam valve. To grind your coffee, simply place the commercial-type portafilter beneath the grinder chute and a micro-switch will automatically turn on the grinder and shut it off when are finished. A lift-style tamper is conveniently mounted to the Napolitana for easy packing of the espresso powder. Beyond that, all you have to do is remember to refill the large 100 ounce removable water tank, though you may not have to do it all that often.
