Design and Functions

Victoria Arduino has a rich history for expert craftsmanship and began selling its first lever machines in 1946. The Athena Leva continues Victoria Arduino’s record of excellence with it’s beautiful and classic, stainless steel design and quality features. Along with the Athena Leva’s top of the line materials, the professional lever delivery system ensures a high quality and delicious espresso.

The Athena Leva operates a little bit differently than other lever espresso machines. Because it is equipped with a heat exchange boiler, the water temperature can be directly controlled by the barista for optimal and customized coffee extraction. When the lever is lowered, hot water from the boiler enters the group and begins wetting the coffee. The longer the lever is pulled, the longer the pre-infusion cycle lasts. The Athena Leva is also equipped with a pressure reducer, which lowers the pressure of the water supply resulting in a more effective pre-infusion and creamier espresso.
