Making espresso in the home can be a lot cheaper than running out to buy a serving when the urge to have some fine coffee arises. Of course, having your own espresso machine in the home also offers great convenience.
There are quite a number of espresso machines on the market though, so choosing the right one might not always be easy to do. For those considering the La Pavoni Professional PBB-16 Espresso Machine Black Base model, there are quite a number of positives that make it a good machine worth purchasing.
It is not the perfect machine though, and a few drawbacks do exist. Overall, it is a solid espresso maker for anyone interested in making an investment in one.
The machine can make up to 16 two-ounce shots and this is thanks to the sizable 38 ounce boiler installed inside of it. There are smaller machines on the market that are only capable of making 2, 4, or 8 shots. That is fine if you are only filling small orders.

The flexibility of the machine is a major plus. Read the rest of this entry
