Elektra Micro Casa Leva S1 Espresso Machine

While it’s not the smallest machine to brew you a cup of espresso in spite of its name (for that look to Nomad or >Handpresso), the Elektra Micro Casa Leva S1 Espresso Machine certainly delivers in brew quality, not to mention serves as a veritable ornament for your kitchen. The machine is devoid of an electric pump but makes up for quantity with quality; instead, a lever just like those in the earliest of espresso machines lets you do the work of pushing water through finely ground coffee by way of a spring lever mechanism that guarantees an even, consistent extraction regardless of your technique. It does however include a boiler however that redirects to a steam wand as well, so all you’ll need to add is a good grinder and some elbow grease. Available in three colors including chrome, copper (shown), and brass.
