Expobar Office Leva comes with a commercial 58 mm portafilter handle. It is made of chrome-plated high density brass that contributes to the thermal stability. Include: two filter baskets for one and two espresso shots.
Heavy duty E61 grouphead is a desirable feature that you can find in the Expobar lever espresso machine and more expensive commercial espresso makers. It is made of solid brass and beautifully chrome platted, polished to perfection. This grouphead is always hot and ready for brewing due to it's thermosyphon circulation system that circle hot water continuously between the grouphead and the boiler for better thermal stability. The Lever require less flashing of blank shots due to patented flow restrictor and very short distance from the boiler to the grouphead.
Heat exchanger 1.8 litres boiler is made of high quality deoxidation treated copper hand built by Expobar with heavy brass cupping. Thermal insulation adds to energy efficiency and temperature stability. The 1.8L HX boiler allow you to brew and steam milk at the same time without the need to relief pressure as required in smaller boiler machines such as solis sl70, Rancilio Silvia and similar espresso makers.
Expobar Lever Plus has an automatic boiler refill inside the boiler. A smart probe sensor sense the water level and when the water level goes below certain level, it gives the pump an order to refill the boiler. In case the boiler run out of water, the boiler heating element will off to avoid damage.
Boiler pressure gauge located on the right side of the Expobar Lever espresso machine. It let you know when the machine is ready to brew coffee and steam milk by showing the bar pressure in the copper boiler. Once the machine reached its ideal pressure in few minutes (around 1 bar), its ready to brew and steam milk. With E61 grouphead, it is recommended to wait few more minutes prior to brewing so the circulation of water to the grouphead heats the group properly. You can accelerate the brew group heating time by flashing some water through it and the portafilter handle.
Expobar lever has a brew group manual pressure relief valve attached to the E61 grouphead. The lever control the grouphead. Pulling up starts the brew process, pulling down stops the brew process. Then, a manual pressure relief valve opens at the bottom and release pressure from the grouphead and portafilter handle to the tray. The pressure relief dries the ground used coffee in the portafilter handle so its packed nicely into a cookie shape, easier to knock it out and the machine is quickly ready for your next shot.
The Expobar Lever E61 Grouphead has a pre infusion feature. It creates uniform extraction of the ground coffee in the portafilter handle, resulting in maximum aroma.
A 2.9 Liters water tank is included.
Water filter softener is included with the machine, located in the water tank. We offer annual supply of high quality water softeners for use with Expobar Espresso makers at significant discount. Water quality and scale removal is important not only for best coffee taste but also protects your expensive espresso machine. Preventative maintenance is better and cheaper since you gain max performance at all times.
The Expobar Lever Plus have both a water tank and it is ready for plumb-in to water and drain connection with a simple switch of under mount valve. Both drain and water connection are required if the option to hook up to the main is chosen.
Water connection / plumb in feature is standard in both the Expobar Brewtus IV-R and Lever Plus espresso machines. However, keep in mind that direct water connection to your main water supply may require some alterations and flow control of your household water pressure. If you suspect you have too low or too high water pressure, it is recommended to get a machine with rotary pump like the Brewtus IV-R since the rotary pump is less sensitive to pressure fluctuations. It is required to use commercial grade 8 liters water softener or similar Filtered water System for espresso machines connetced to your water supply lines with pressure regulator and pressure gauge. Please consult us prior to hooking it up.
*Unlike rotary pump equipped espresso machines, connecting vibratory pump espresso machine to pull water from a water tank far away is not recommended because water mass in the way may be too hard on the vibratory pump.
The Office lever Plus feature a heat exchanger boiler that is always ready to steam or froth milk with short recovery time.
Two Separate Stainless steel wand one for hot water and second for steaming/ frothing milk, both on 360 degree swivel base.
As of 2010, Expobar Lever models comes with Swivel base Anti burn steam wand for steaming/ frothing milk.
