In 1946 at the end of World War II, Victoria Arduino marketed its first lever machines.

Advanced technology

You'll notice that typical lever espresso machines, water goes straight to the group from the boiler.

This has a well-known pressure of 1 to 1.2 bar at 120-130° C.

That means it's the same water used to make steam.

But, it's different with the Victoria Arduino Athena Leva.

This unique lever machine uses heat exchangers so you can control the water temperature.

When you're able to control that, your extracted coffee can have an optimized quality.

With this special control, you can set up an excellent pre-infusion.

You can do that with its special pressure reducer which reduces the pressure of the water supply, normally 4 to 6 bar.

These specifications give coffee extractions you can only have with the Athena Leva.

It's distinctly creamy and not burnt (common with high temperature water) so you can enjoy the best espresso shot you can have.
