Made of pure Stainless Steel 304, our World’s first stainless piston pressure kit for La Pavoni Stradivari curved handle is the first solution in the world for you to keep using your curved handle and also benefit from our top quality piston pressure kit.
Whether you’ve just started learning, or are a long-time veteran, anyone can use our PPK. Other companies will use bulkier pressure gauges(we use the 40mm standard size gauge), softer chrome-plated brass, and use lower-quality material for the piston gasket. In the same time, our pin screws for example work with a Phillips screwdriver, making for easy installation and future servicing.
Designed and improved by my dear friend John Michael Hauck.
Our official installation tutorial is finally here:
Piston pressure kit includes:
・Pressure gauge (0-16 bars) – NEW 2021 model shipped, with the colored La Pavoni type design.

・Stainless pressure gauge adapter (1/8″ thread);
・Stainless piston with pre-installed silicone gaskets;

Bruce C.P., an important member and ex lead moderator of an important La Pavoni users group, comments on our PPK:
“Coffee Sensor has improved the La Pavoni design, providing more stainless steel parts at a lower cost. It’s a well-thought-out and well-executed design. Of all the PPKs on the market, I recommend Coffee Sensor’s.”
