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.
