Lately, the CoffeeGeek crew have been very fortunate to be able to see some of the more beautiful work of art machines in the espresso world, including the Elektra Nivola and the La Pavoni Professional piston machine.
This trend continues with the absolutely stunning Elektra Micro Casa a Leva, a spring piston “manual” espresso machine, and let me tell you, we are salivating.
Not many people know this, but the Micro Casa a Leva is probably one of the longest running espresso machines still made today. It is one of the original machines made by Elektra when they were formed in the late 1940s, and other than a few technological improvements here and there, the machine remains unchanged to this day.
CoffeeGeek was supplied the Elektra Micro Casa by Elektra SRL. We received the chrome and brass model complete with the luxurious aluminum travel case and extra dome with the blue Mulino glass ornament.
We've chosen 1st in Coffee as the listed vendor for this product because they have great service, a wide range of products, and excellent feedback. They are also a long time supporter of CoffeeGeek, and this is one way we can thank them. You should too, if you're in the market for a new espresso machine ;)
