visually there is much to like here... reminds me of my favourite La San Marco machines of yesteryear... not so sure about the pointy top of the front panel / shield... my only initial gripe... but easy to wipe down.... certainly a more daring design than the modern boxes I deplore. And it is from Naples- the homeland of lever espresso.
we started to accept order for La Vela (but probably its official name will be VENTUM). Hereby its technical details:
Full body, hand shaped, made of stainless 304 steel
5 litre stainless steel boiler double insulated
Dipper pipe directly into boiler, no pump.
dipper pipe into boiler
2000W Boiler's element
Boiler cleaning waste gate
Standard outfit: 1x porter filter 2 spouts, 1x porter filter 1 spouts, 1x naked porter filter, 3x steam tips, tamper, instruction book.
The box containing the machine is made foldable wood see pic (please consider that pictures have been made on inner prototype beta test machine).
We are going to add something more to its base equipment: a brash, a small espresso cups stand, a wooden box containing all the accessories...etc.
And a very special logo made by copper will complete the machine.
We also thinking about a customized knockout drawer but this will came after the show and priced.
The temperature measured on top of the boiler's cover is of +/- 40 °C with a room temperature of about 30 °C.
