  • New La Pavoni & Fausto

    Set up my new La Pavoni Cellini Premium from ******* today after a recent trip to Melbourne. I paired it with a Rocket Fausto Grinder from 2muchcoffeman formally known as TC. Dialled in the grinder which took about 300gms of beans and only one phone call to TC . Thanks to ******* for his help and espresso whilst we shop, and his example of how not to transfer hoppers from one grinder to another .

      I will. A small learning curve from the Musica (which is remaining in the family) but got a acceptable cup (not perfect) after several adjustments to the grinder.

              First impression - the Cellini certainly looks better than the Musica. The steam will be a learning curve due to the Cellini only having 2 holes in the steam wand compared to the Musica that had 4. I ended up with a lot of bubbles and less micro foam but there is plenty of pressure, I will just need to learn how to use it properly.

              The espresso part was no problem just had to remember to watch the pour to stop it before blonding. Very easy. It as easy to use as would be most lever machines. It takes up slightly less space on the bench both the footprint and the height for which she who must be obeyed is very happy with. The Cellini and Fausto and both much quieter than the Musica and Mazzer Mini, which my neighbours will be happy with. The warm up time is slightly longer than the Musica. I haven't timed it but it would be about 10 minutes difference but I am retired so no problem.

              Looks wise the Cellini has more bling and the Fausto is not much larger than the Mazzer. The grind on the Fausto is consistent and fluffy without clumping. Considering the humidity at the moment that is much better than the MM. The Fausto is taking about 11.6 seconds to grind a double in the precision basket (about20gms) so it is quicker than the Mazze which has been covered in other threads.

              PS Ifixed the photo

                    Give ****** a ring. The Cellini certainly makes a great espresso. I am slowly but surely getting the milk foaming right. Easy to use. The vibe pump is much quieter than my Musica was.

                      I could not resist and make an impulsive decision to get one of this beauty yesterday! I think my skills at coffee making needs a lot of brushing up as I am completely new to this. But I am amazed how what I would think a lot of CS members would call 'thats a terrible express' still tastes so much better than Nespresso which I had been having! (am getting better with the pressure and timing but coffee tends to be coming out rather too fast although the pressure at the time of brewing is around 9 - 10 bars; took me about 7 cups to get to this pressure.. and lots of buzzy heads!)

                      Bottom line, its looking great and the machine is awesome and I can't wait to get stuck into this new hobby of mine.

                        Have fun learning, don't forget when you think you have it right something will change and you start all over again.

                          Thought I would share my experience thus far (1.5 weeks of owning) with this amazing machine!

                          - making espresso is a dream and a joy to use with this beast even as a complete newbie; although I do need to keep practicing to get the consistency of espresso to be same/similar each time;
                          - can't fault the machine albeit all the paper-trail saga behind (which I have learnt to come across) but that is not the point of comment nor does that affect how I use the machine to learn and experience new hobby of mine;
                          - frothing milk is a bit tricky at first and only recently I am getting very thick consistent texture of true baristas and now have to learn the trick of pouring for latte art!
                          - have learnt that using cheaper beans (or maybe an older beans) results in poor espresso where the pressure is low and comes out really fast and making the coffee to taste rather sour;

                          but am really happy with the machine so far and it does wonders for me and am sure it will for some time!

                            Fresh beans are best look up the home roasting section
