Pure form. A strong, powerful body and bodywork made in precious, noble materials. Athena Leva turns a coffee break into a precious and magical moment.
With its horizontal, moulded volume, Athena Leva fits comfortably on any surface. An original, unique piece that has made rational, linear style its main characteristic.
In line with the criteria for reliability that is Victoria Arduino, the Athena has made simplicity its strong point. And when the barista performs the traditional gesture of lowering the lever, thick, creamy and fragrant coffee is poured into the cup, with an aroma that makes the moment unique.
The lever system allows the barista to set the pre-infusion time manually at every pouring operation. When he or she lowers the lever, the hot water from the boiler tank enters the group, wetting the coffee panel. The lower the lever, the longer the pre-infusion stage. A good professional barista will wait for the first drops of coffee to leave the spout before raising the lever; this means that the water has permeated through the whole coffee panel. For efficient pre-infusion, the inlet pressure of the water in the group should not exceed 2 bars.
The possibility to use two or three pouring groups means it is suited to the individual needs of the environment. Athena Leva is available in versions with copper, brass or gold bodywork. Operation is basic and intuitive and given by the simple movement of the mechanisms. This is a machine that is built to last.
