It's certainly striking, but not really a lever machine other than it's controlled by a lever looking thing. One of the links indicates it uses a gear pump to control flow and uses a PID controlling that pump to adjust pressure. But no way to tell how close to the truth those are.

Wow, it's gorgeous. I watched the whole video and didn't understand a word of it. Electronic grinders have come a long way! I haven't looked at the grinder forum in three years since I got my Monolith. The lever thing is very pretty but I'm going to stick with the old school thing that this is using fancy stuff to replicate.

What is that first grinder he shows? He goes on to use a Mazzer to actually grind.
