A leva, or spring lever machine, creates the pressure needed for an espresso by tensioning a spring via the pull of a lever instead of using a pump, as is common today. This completely manual operation makes handling the Leva a uniquely personal experience.
With your MANUMENT Leva Machine, you can revive the satisfaction of the classic leva process, but now with an unprecedented level of control. On this page we will explain exactly how to get the absolute best from your machine.
Lever in rest/start position – Leva is ready to use
Lever has been pulled, heater is on – water reaches set temperature
Pressure has been reached – machine ready for extraction
Error indication – remaining water was not drained, heater switched off automatically. Please purge! If red light stays on, consult user manual.
