Elektra S1C Chrome Micro Casa A Leva Espresso Machine

$1,349.00
If you want exceptional espresso and an espresso machine that makes minimal noise, then you found the perfect machine. Although some people contest it is more difficult to make espressos with lever machines, it really is not the case, as the lever operation on the A Leva machines make consistent extractions from pull to pull. Elektra has provided precision pump pressure from the placement of the spring in the piston. The lever starts in an upward position, the user pulls down against the spring until coffee fills the bottom of the demitasse cup, then the lever is slowly released and the spring in the piston pushes the lever to pump the water through the coffee grinds. Elektra, a smart choice for exceptional espresso.
