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.

IMPORTANT: Water quality is a very important aspect of your espresso machine longevity. Water that is too hard will cause limescale buildup, which is the number one reason for operating problems. Too pure water, such as ultra pure RO water or distilled water can cause the machine to overfill, since the water level probe needs some minerals in the water to detect water. Use softened water that is about 50ppm in hardness. More info

PLEASE NOTE: Most machines and grinders are inspected for damage after being shipped from overseas. This means most boxes will have signs of being opened even though they are brand new products. This is done to ensure that the equipment made the international shipment in good condition and working order.

COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT NOTE: Most commercial equipment ships on a pallet and has to be bench tested prior to shipment. For this reason, commercial equipment usually ships out three to five business days after the order is received. Some commercial equipment is also special order and/or has limited availability, so please check with us prior to placing an order. Check terms and conditions page for terms relating to commercial equipment.
