we spent some more time with the La Pavoni before folks took off. it was super fun.
Bronwen got to pull some shots of Nicaragua Segovia and pulled two nice shots (one of which was really good indeed).
it's not an easy machine to use - to say the least.
on the other hand, when you get it right the shots have a buttery mouthfeel that is amazing. they seem a bit less "fuzzy" than good shots from pump machines.
and the best shots i've had from this machine are as good as anything i've had from any machine (La Marzocco, Mistral, Synesso, whatever).
