I am setting up a studio in a warehouse by my home and needed to clean out a ton of stuff. I found this old la pavoni machine. I haven't tried to set it up and run it but wanted to get an idea about the story of this model. It's a la pavoni p/sei and it's beautiful. Can anybody tell me when this is from? Should I try to hook it up and run it? Does anybody recommend a company that can service it in the Fairfield county CT area? Any info would be great thank you!

Crossroads espresso (first in the bay area then in Eugene) was the sole importer back then,
it's what a early 90 or so??
the label should tell you,
it is a manual style similar to e-61 grouphead (parts inside a little different) therefor the control box should be the least expensive to some levels,
however be careful in dumping $$$ at it,
inspect boiler/scale situation, remove pump and motor to see if they are froze up before trying to run it and go from there.
