True baristas "pull" an espresso with a lever instead of punching a button and relying on an automatic pump's whims. With this Italian-made machine, you force water through the coffee yourself, using the lever to precisely control speed, which means you get the full flavor and thick cap of crema that mark an ideal drink. Pulling an espresso the old-fashioned way is enormously gratifying, and a video accompanying the machine will teach anyone the skills needed to become a barista.

A steam wand heats milk for hot chocolate and creates foam for cappuccinos, lattes, and other coffee drinks, while an alternate wand with frothing attachment produces heaps of foam automatically. The water tank holds 20 ounces, enough to make 8 cups before the tank (accessible under the machine's removable dome) needs refilling and before water needs to be heated again (the heating element's rating is 1,000 watts maximum, 800 watts minimum). A glass tube permits water-level monitoring, and a thermostat triggers a green light when water reaches the correct crema-producing temperature. An internal fuse, which can be reset in the base, prevents overheating.

This version of La Pavoni's Europiccola model comes in gleaming chrome and features black plastic accents and a durable black acrylic base that contains fine, light-reflecting flecks, producing a polished-granite effect. –Fred Brack

Editor's note: This item may arrive with water inside from the manufacturer's pressure test. This is a normal occurrence and doesn't point to a problem with the machine.
