La Pavoni Full Piston Pressure Gauge Kit


Take your La Pavoni lever machine to next level with the Coffee Sensor piston pressure kit.  The gauge will allow you to measure the pressure going through the group head during the entire brewing process. This full pressure kit is entirely made of Stainless Steel 304 (including the piston which also has brand new silicone gaskets), unlike other models on the market that made from softer chromed brass.  The Brass version is made of Brass (except shaft and piston) to match the color of the brass Pavoni machines.

Compatible with:

  1. Pre and Post Millennium Europiccola;
  2. Pre and Post Millennium Profesional;
  3. Stradivari (you will need to replace the curved lever arm with the one in the kit).


Kit includes:

  • Pressure gauge (0-16 bar)
  • Pressure gauge adapter (1/8 thread)
  • Stainless steel shaft;
  • Stainless steel piston with silicone gaskets;
  • Stainless steel or brass lever arm;
  • Installation key;
  • Piston insertion tool (round black Teflon part) for an easy piston insertion;
  • Teflon tape and food safe grease.



  • New handle not included.  You will need to re-use your existing handle.
  • Use the Teflon tape to get the gauge to be perfectly aligned (more or less tape for the perfect position).

Look up an installation video!

This kit is very high quality and easy to install. However, if you're new to a La Pavoni machine like I was, it's worth while to look for installation instructions on youtube or some other repository. There are some steps that are not obvious for newcomers, such as setting the offset from the shower screen and ensuring the piston is threaded properly.

It's an expensive upgrade, but it's the only way to get a pressure readout and its reliable.

Works perfectly - but order a new gasket

The kit is very high quality and matches perfectly with the finish of the La Pavoni. There are no instructions included with the kit, but there is a YouTube video that is very detailed. 2 things that are missing from the kit are a gasket for the group head and a pick to remove the existing gasket. Make sure to order a new gasket when you order the kit. This is a very useful addition to the machine and will improve your extraction.

Great quality

Perfectly function after install.
I checked youtube for installation.
And makes few mistakes.
but if package include installation instruction must be easier.

Donald Jubinville (Prevost, QC)
Easy install

Online videos were relatively unnecessary. Easy install, with just the right amount of food grade grease and candy.
