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.

It is very important to use "softened water" with these machines as hard water might damage the mechanisms inside the machine. Also, in addition, it is important to run this machine with water at least 25% full in the sight glass, or possible damage to the heating element might occur.

The Elektra a leva has a brass piston to house two piston gaskets, while other machines have a plastic piston. Plastic pistons can get brittle and crack over time with all the heat in the grouphead whereas the brass piston in the Elektra is a great add-on to maintain heat within the grouphead.
