The Izzo Alex Leva and Valexia Leva employ a traditional La San Marco spring lever to deliver outstanding espresso-pull after pull. This model delivers all of the shot quality of the Izzo Valchiria, but on a much smaller footprint based on the Alex Duetto chassis. In our experience, the San Marco group delivers a superior user experience and more consistent shot quality than the CMA group used in many competitor lever machines.
This machine is silent in operation using a dipper group and it must be plumbed in. The options are a mains water connection or it can be run from a water container with a Flojet pump.
Our Scace tests of this configuration indicate that temperature stability is excellent after an initial pull. Boiler pressure is controlled by a Gicar PID and SSR combination.
Milk texture performance is outstanding with excellent dry steam and perfect microfoam is easy to obtain.
The accessory kit includes:
- single and double Izzo OEM portafilters.
- high quality machined 55mm Izzo ergonomic tamper
- Izzo steam tip kit- 2 x 4 hole in different designs and a 3 hole tip to add to the standard 2 hole tip.
