Summary

Customized Items:

Lever Operated Brewing

As opposed to modern push button or toggle brewing, the Strega is a throwback to espresso yesteryear with its traditional lever group. Assisted by a pump, the machine pre-infuses and brews by pulling down the lever and gradually releasing it. This style of machine originated the concept of pulling a shot.

Manual Pressure Profiling

Most machines deliver constant pressure over the course of a brew cycle, but the Strega’s lever and pump design allows you to modify the pressure manually while brewing the shot, simply by holding and releasing the lever. Regular use gradually tapers the pressure from 9.5 to 5.5 bars as the lever spring rises back to the top.

Manual Pressure Profiling

Electrically Heated Group Head

The Strega’s group head is electrically heated and designed for maximum temperature stability. The group head is heated by two dedicated heating elements and controlled by a thermostat. The dual elements help to provide even heating to the group head to aid in maintaining temperature stability.

In-House Production

Bezzera is one of the only espresso machine manufacturers to not only assemble its own machines in house, but design many of their own components and assemble those, too. So, rather than buying components externally and designing their machines around them, Bezzera thoughtfully designs each element, bringing them together into a beautiful whole.
