Elektra Micro Casa Model Chrome and Brass Espresso Machine ART.S1CO

Overview:

If you're looking for a piston-operated espresso machine that can brew a consistently good espresso without wearing out over time, look for the one with the eagle with spread wings on top. This is one of several varieties the Elektra Micro Casa line, designed to look good on your counter and give you a predictably perfect cup of espresso by providing predictable pressure at each point in the pump's operation.

Features:

Impressive Polished Appearance

The polished brass and chrome finish body is topped with an eagle with spread wings to make the Elektra instantly recognizable. It has a round base with a 10” diameter for extra stability and bakelite handle for improved heat resistance.

Water Level Sight Glass

Make sure your espresso machine never runs out of water with this easy-to-read level indicator.

Pressure Gauge

When the indicator is in the green zone, the steam is at the perfect level to brew your espresso. It can indicate pressure between 0.8 BAR and 1.3 BAR.

Brass Spring Piston

Plastic pistons are the reason that so many spring piston-operated machines have a poor reputation because they overheat and become warped over time. Not so with Elektra's brass spring piston-operated Micro Casa line. This piston is designed to consistently pour you the perfect cup of espresso every time you pull down on the lever even when you do it twice for a double.

Very Little Assembly Required

Setting up your machine is easy. Just attach the steam wand.

Boiler Pressure Relief Valve

Located on top of the boiler, this valve is a safety feature that keeps the boiler from building up too much pressure.

800-Watt Heating Element

This armor-plated heating element provides the heating power necessary to create enough steam to brew the perfect espresso.

Internal Pressure Regulator

This regulator makes sure the temperature never gets too high.

Built-In Safety Thermostat

While you should always keep an eye on the water level indicated by the sight glass to make sure the heating element isn't damaged by lack of water, this thermostat helps prevent meltdown if the water runs out.

    Notes:
    Warning: Please make sure the sight glass is the field between a minimum of 25% and 75% at all times during operation. If the water level lowers below the 25% mark, damage can occur to the machine.

    The machine is not compatible with pods due to the smaller portafilter size.

    Changes in the exterior color is not covered by the warranty as a manufacturer defect. This color will naturally change as the machine ages.

    Be sure you have a crescent wrench on hand to attach the steam wand when setting up the device.

    Cup in the picture is not included.

    Warranty note: Avoid using hard water in this machine. Have your water tested if you are not certain that you have soft water available to avoid damaging the machine and voiding the warranty. Only run this machine if water in this sight glass is at least 25% full to avoid damaging the heating element. If you return a machine with a damaged heating element, there will be a charge for repair of the heating element that will be deducted from the credit.

    If water is not pumped into the machine upon initial startup, it will trigger the safety thermostat and the machine will have to be reset. The reset button is under a yellow cap on the bottom of the machine. If you still have issues, email us for further instructions.

    Do not pull lever down if the portafilter is not properly installed in the grouphead and filled with very fine ground coffee! Doing so will cause damage to the machine and may cause injury.

    Surfaces are very hot and may cause burns.

    I’ve only had my Elektra Microcasa for over a week now and in that time have learned how to pull a decent shot. There’s not too bad a learning curve on a unique machine like this, all though I have been a barista for years. For someone with zero experience crafting espresso, understanding the nuances of the process might be a bit more daunting. Lever machines are said to be particularly fussy regarding the different brewing elements: water temperature, dose of coffee, quality of beans, proper grind, proper tamp, etc. That being said, I have a long way to go in terms of extracting a truly great shot, which is partially what draws me to a spring-piston lever machine; creating espresso is an art and having this type of hardware/process versus a an E61 pump machine allows for such user involvement. There’s a zen quantity to pulling my shot in the mornings now that I’ve never before had.

    The design of the machine is exquisite: antiquated, high quality components and finishes throughout, beautifully reflective metals-which are remarkably smudge and scratch resistant-and ornate details make this machine an unrivaled ornament on the countertop. My only minor issues thus far are trivial at best: 1. the 1.8 liter boiler is slightly smaller than I’d like. As it’s dangerous to allow the water level to drop below 25% capacity, I find myself refilling the tank once every day or other day. I’d certainly be adding water more than that if I was preparing for friends as well as myself. 2. The portafilter builds up pressure like the rest of the machine, and if the boiler is still pressurized the portafilter tends to explode a little upon removal, spewing bits of espresso about. Equipping this machine with a 3 way solenoid valve that depressurizes the group head, which the Semiautomatica has, would be really nice, especially for the price. 3. The touch points on the machine (lever handle and portafilter handle) are a high quality rubberized material that’s pretty standard through the industry. I’ve seen previous models that had wooden touch points which I think would perfect the aesthetic.

    To touch on another important point, the steam arm is very impressive indeed. The machine has a nice dry steam and at a really nice pressure. I can’t get the same quality foam for lattes or cappuccinos nearly as easily on the $12,000 machines I use at work. Also, Majesty coffee offered free shipping and sent the item off promptly. I’ll be using them again in the future. In closing, in the brief time I’ve spent with the machine I absolutely love it and can’t wait to perfect the craft of brewing. Especially considering the Microcasa A Leva is supposed to yield some of the best coffee out of any espresso maker, regardless of price, when you get all the elements just right.
