Refurbished Pre 1989 Elektra Micro Casa a Leva for sale.

New parts from Orphan Espresso:

New sight glass
gaskets and seals replaced
new wiring
new heating element

This chrome unit comes with:

knock box,
set of 4 porcelain cups
49mm stainless steel tamper (NIB)
steam pitcher


This unit has been treated like a rare antique. It was hand buffed every day, no water or grounds ever hit the drip tray and only distilled water was ever used. Boiler is clean as is the group head. I'm needing to liquidate as I've run out of space with my last purchase. What girl needs three Mcals? Two maybe... but three? LOL. Anyway, I'm looking for this to be a local sale.

Looking for $1025.

Listing Details
Asking / Suggested Price: 1050
Seller Name: Cher doubleosoul
Seller Location: Victoria, BC
Sale Type: For Sale

Beautiful machine, and good price! If I didn't already own one, I'd be all over this. The Elektra Lever is one of those "near and dear to my heart" machines.

Many thanks for the bump and I'm right there with you. I'll always own at least one Mcal because of the taste profile, ease of use and of course aesthetics. Whoever buys this one will have a lot of years of good shots.

By the way, it was cool meeting you briefly at the Faema booth at SCAA. Truth be told, Faema has had a hand in why I'm selling one of my MCals. I picked up a 2 group Urania and am running out of room. Somebody's got to go. LOL

I want to learn more about the lever world and after reading think this is a pretty good machine to start on.

I'm interested but I'd have to convert it for 220 use. Do you know if it would be a circuit board change or a whole boiler change?

Can you let me know the cost to ship it to Singapore?

Thank you. I'm considering opening up shipping to US. People in my area are real married to Saeco autos. Nasty!
