Budget-Friendly Prosumer: Expobar Office Lever Plus
Calling all coffee aficionados! If you’re looking for a professional brewing experience in a home setting, take an extra-hard look at the Expobar Office Lever Plus. One of the most exciting machines to make its debut this spring, this upgraded and plumbable Expobar model gives you the option of plugging directly into a water source. An endless water supply means you won’t have to rely on the water tank for your brewing needs. Of course, if you prefer to use it, the 120oz removable reservoir definitely won’t disappoint.
Well-respected, the Office Lever line is known for its remarkable build quality and commercial components including: the professional-grade copper boilers, as well as a heavy-duty chrome-plated marine brass E61 brew group and portafilter. The Expobar Office Lever Plus has been updated to include a no-burn steam wand, a definite plus in our book. With its heat-exchanger, you won’t have to think twice about brewing and frothing simultaneously; if you’ve got more than one coffee drinker in the house this makes a huge difference during those busy mornings. Of course, prosumer staples like a three-way solenoid valve and low-water sensor are standard in this fully-equipped machine. You’ll also have a unique pressure controller that monitors boiler pressure and automatically activates the heating element if it drops.
Aside from the impressive list of features, be prepared to be pleasantly surprised by the Expobar Office Lever Plus’s shiny good looks. Right out of the box, this unit looks and feels like a professional machine, designed for world-class espresso. Its polished stainless steel body certainly makes a statement on the counter; lever and knobbed-based controls ensure that baristas will feel right ease with the Office Lever Plus.
Due to its tremendous performance and build quality, the Whole Latte Love staff recommends the Office Lever Plus to coffee hobbyists who truly enjoy the art of making espresso. The Expobar Office Lever Plus is also one of our most competitively priced prosumer machines. With a price tag of under $1400, it is much more affordable than some the other machines in its class, making the Office Lever Plus ideal for the coffee lovers looking to explore the prosumer market.
