ATHENA LEVA

In 1946, at the end of the Second World War, Victoria Arduino put on the market its first coffee machines with the lever dispensing system. The materials used for the internal and external components make it a precious espresso coffee machine. The body of the device is entirely hand made by expert artisans, is a unique piece, and reflects all the tradition of a perfect espresso coffee.

The antique art of coffee still lives today

Athena Leva is an espresso coffee machine loved by professionals. Its lever dispensing system guarantees a high level of customization of the drink but at the same time, needs a highly skilled barista.

THE LEVER, BETWEEN STORY AND TECHNOLOGY

The machine’s features are easy and intuitive to use, allowing it to be an extremely reliable and long-lasting tool.

 

THE LEVER EXTRACTION SYSTEM

The lever system of the professional coffee machine allows the barista to set the pre-infusion time manually for every supply: when the lever is low, the hot water of the boiler enters the group, dampening the coffee cake. The more the barista keeps the lever low, the longer the pre-infusion phase will be. A skilled barista waits for the first drops of coffee the come out of the spout and then raises the lever; this means that the whole coffee cake is soaked

 

 

TECHNOLOGY MEETS THE LEVER ESPRESSO MACHINE

In the conventional lever espresso coffee machines, the water that enters the group is that of the boiler and has a pressure of 1-1,2 bar that corresponds to 120-130°C. It is the same water used to generate steam. On the other hand, Th Athena Leva uses a heat exchanger (always with the lever), and the temperature of the water can be used to optimize the quality of the extracted coffee. In this case, to make an excellent pre-infusion, it is suggested to use the pressure reduction system on top of the machine to reduce the pressure of the hydraulic network that is usually at 4-6 bar.
