The Coffee Sensor full piston pressure kit for the La Pavoni Europiccola Pre-Millennium and Millenium machines is entirely made of Stainless Steel 304 (including the piston).
We also have the PPK version specially made from brass and stainless, to match the copper and brass machines, found right here:
Other PPK’s on the market are softer, made from chromed brass and also don’t have the 40mm pressure gauge on top (but bigger and bulkier) and also don’t use channels on screws and so on.
Kit content can be viewed on the second picture of the product page, and is made of:
- Pressure gauge (0-16 bar);
- Pressure gauge adapter (1/8 thread);
- Piston with brand new silicone gaskets on it (already installed);
- Brand new lever arm;
- Teflon tape as sealent;
- Food safe grease (not shown in the pic);
- Fix key (not shown in the pic);
- Piston insertion tool (black round Teflon part, makes the insertion of the piston in the group head a real piece of cake)
As a special note about Coffee Sensor pressure kits, Bruce P.C., a member and one of the mods of the official La Pavoni online FB group says about our product, and quote:
“Tudor (group member) has improved on the LP design, providing more stainless steel parts at a lower cost. It’s a well thought out and well executed design…..My recommendation is Tudor’s……
He mentioned on the official page, all 3 manufacturers that have this product in their offer.

Along with all stainless steel and brass parts, Coffee Sensor offers also a full installation kit, including Teflon tape as sealant, food safe grease for lubricating all moving parts and two new piston gaskets !
The pressure kit is compatible with:
- Pre and Post Millenium models of Europiccola (8 cup smaller boiler);
- Pre and Post Millenium Profesional (16 cup bigger boiler);
- Stradivari (our handle is required to be installed, so you need to remove the curved one).
A new lever plastic or wood handle is not included. But it’s very easy to remove your old one and just install it on the new lever arm.
The group head pin model is a special one that closes up with a small screw so it has a very fixed position.
That way the piston shaft will not have much room for unnecessary movement or play.
The pressure gauge indicates a maximum 16 bar and has chrome back case.
The parts are not shipped assembled (safer shipment), so our customers just need to dismantle the parts, use Teflon tape on every connection for sealing purpose and reattach the parts.
Remember than more Teflon tape will help you get the gauge or other parts in the exact position that you need, in case that the parts screw more than needed.
This is useful to get the gauge be positioned perfectly forward.
Coffee Sensor PPK for the La Pavoni EP Pre-Millennium and Millenium machines is not intended only for experienced users.
The time needed to install it is 15 minutes max, regardless of your level of experience.
Please ask for the installation video after the purchase (video is private).
