The benefits of a lever-style espresso machine

QCS is the best shop for those who are interested in a lever machine.


It is no secret that the espresso that is extracted from a lever machine will be more balanced and clean while having more potential to experience the true notes and tones of your high quality beans to the fullest.

Some other benefits of a lever machine are…

  • Less noise: Due to the lack of a pump, you can make a shot of an espresso with no noise.
  • Low maintenance/Built to last: A lever machine requires less parts and in turn there is a focus on high quality material.
  • Short learning period: Very simple to use
  • Ultimate user control: lever machines allow you to vary the speed at which the water passes through the coffee, you can obtain the exact characteristics of espresso extraction that you want.
  • User satisfaction: If you like to take the driver’s seat with things you love, a lever machine may be a great fit. You pull the lever, you hold the lever, and you control your shot. It’s empowering, it’s satisfying, and it’s personal.
  • The machine looks cool and you will too 😉
