Buying a professional espresso machine is no different from buying a car.
It is not only the performance aspect that is important, in our case the quality of the drink, but also the aesthetic aspect. We are talking about a machine that plays an important role in the furnishing of a kitchen, an element that also has a central function in the daily rituals of every lover of good espresso coffee. Therefore, it is not only important that its operation is flawless and that its product is up to standard, but it is also important how much it pleases your eye every day.
The design of the coffee machine depends on its functionality
There are different schools of design for coffee machines, also depending on what big family the machine belongs to: an automatic or semi-automatic machine will tend to take the direction of more futuristic shapes, while a manual machine will have a more classic and timeless design.
For an espresso machine, in fact, the design is very much linked to its functionality. A non-manual coffee machine clearly has a modern design that has little to do with the history of espresso making, where the tradition of gestures is part of a partition of movements for which one needs to have practical and elegant mastery. With automatic machines, it tends to be the case that you only have to press one button, so the whole design of the machine is functional to that, as is the case, for example, with machines used to make American coffee.
The design is fundamental to the choice
But when you find yourself buying a new professional coffee machine, it makes sense to think about other aspects as well, such as the presence of the object in the kitchen, how it participates in the decor of the environment, how it communicates with other appliances and how it is presented in general to people.
So design is just as important as performance.
Lever espresso machines represent traditional design: the Export model
The lever espresso machine Export by Pontevecchio, for example, is a very suitable solution to meet both needs, that of furnishing with an elegant, classic and at the same time modern piece, and that of satisfying the palate with your favourite ground coffee.
Small and silent, the Export is a machine that sublimates the perfection of the artisanal evolution that descends from the creation of the first espresso machine, brought to the present day with the improvements that have been added each time. Thanks to its compact size, it can be placed even in less spacious kitchens, and it is available in a variety of colours to enrich different furnishing tastes.
The Export model: prestigious versions
You can choose the Export model also in its most prestigious versions in stainless steel or gold, which in addition to the different colour variants add a touch of prestige to the furnishings.
Export is reliable and solid, made to last over time while maintaining high performance, and you can rely on it to make even many coffees in sequence, without fearing loss of aroma or the precious organoleptic properties of your favourite drink.
The Lusso I model: functional design that furnishes
If you wish to enrich your kitchen even more and need to make several coffees at the same time, then your choice is the Lusso I model by Pontevecchio, which allows you to prepare two espressos at the same time, and to have steam and hot water at the same time thanks to the two separate wands that can act in the same time.
This model is perfect for the needs of those who run a small business, for example a bed and breakfast, and so they can prepare delicious espressos for their guests, being able to show off this piece of furniture that recalls the design of the 1950s and that fascinates for the gestures it recalls.
This machine also incorporates an intelligent power supply model, which switches off when not needed, to avoid wasting electricity and thus ensure very prolonged use without running the risk of overheating the machine. In this way every espresso is brewed to perfection, with the bouquet of aromas that makes it precious.
The Lusso II model: double plate and excellent espresso
If, on the other hand, you cannot renounce to the top of the range and wish to have at home the maximum of excellence in terms of lever coffee machines among the big brands, then your choice is the Lusso II model (two groups) by Pontevecchio, which with its double lever allows you to make even more coffees at the same time, to satisfy even more people without affecting the quality of the drink, thanks to the plate that supports precisely two groups.
This chrome-plated plate that allows you to distribute water in two groups is the result of an invention by Ercolino Bernini, the man who founded Pontevecchio, and its innovative operation is based on a network of dispensing channels that finally allow you to make up to four delicious espressos at the same time.
This last aspect makes it very suitable for those catering and hospitality businesses such as bars, holiday farms, restaurants or taverns, which need to make several coffees at the same time and cannot ignore the quality of their product.
The Lusso II model also comes in a variety of colours, so that it can adapt perfectly to different environments and furnishing tastes each time.
Choosing the best machine for your favourite beverage extracted from coffee powder is therefore not difficult, if you choose among the Pontevecchio models.
They are characterised and distinguished by their traditional design with modern references and offer an extraordinarily unique manufacture in each of its pieces, which is handcrafted according to tradition. They will find a place in your kitchen standing out as a piece of furniture and they will never let you down in the making of your espresso, because they are made of durable and reliable materials.
