The ancient art of coffee still lives in the Athena Leva, the espresso machine so beloved by espresso professionals. Its lever delivery system ensures a high level of customisation of the drink, but at the same time requires a high level of competence on the part of the barista.
Operating the Athena Leva is straightforward and intuitive and, given the simplicity of the movements and mechanisms, the machine is extremely durable.
The lever system of this professional coffee machine lets the barista modulate the pre-infusion manually for each delivery. When you lower the lever hot water from the boiler enters the group, wetting the coffee. The more the barista pulls the lever, the longer the pre-infusion phase. A good professional waits for the first drops of coffee to come out before lifting the lever; this means that water will have permeated all the coffee. For effective pre-infusion, the pressure of the water as it enters the group should not exceed 2 bars.
