Big things come in small packages is an adage that rings true for the Izzo Alex Leva Coffee Machine. This semi-automatic lever espresso machine produces the same quality of espresso as the heavy-duty Izzo Valchiria but does so with a more compact body. Capable and powerful like its bigger sibling, the Izzo Alex Leva also features an old-school spring lever which looks extra cool whether this machine is sitting in a small cafe or at home — plus it gives the barista the ability to put some elbow grease into pull the perfect shot.
Unlike other espresso machines in its class, the Izzo Alex Leva uses the La San Marco lever group. Unique to this brand, the San Marco group offers optimum performance and a fabulous user experience that baristas of all levels are sure to appreciate.
Inside the Alex Leva, the SSR system works wonders in keeping the water temperature consistent. This works in conjunction with the Gicar controller which lets you set the temperature accurately. With the boiler pressure controlled by the Gicar PID and SSR combination, the Izzo Alex Leva offers great temperature stability after the first pull. Microfoams and textured milk are also easy to achieve thanks to its powerful steam wand.
Despite its small size, the Izzo Alex Leva can hold more cups than other small espresso machines thanks to the expandable cup holder. This machine also gives you full control of when to heat the cups — at the back, you’ll find a manual switch that releases the steam to the top of the Alex Leva where the cups are placed.
