Hi. last year I contacted Mario in Elektra to talk about "business".
I asked "hey: what about if I came down there in Preganziol?" ... "Why not... " :D he said ...

Once there... surprise! lots of lovely machines!



a brass Peppina... some Caravels



some other Peppinas



one ultra-rare La Tarvisium (before the brand Elektra)




2 more rarities : on the left a mix between the Microcasa and the Enrico of Italy; on the right one Microcasa with an oversized piston...



So... what do you think? Was that the "espressoleverlandia" or not? 8)
Ciao a tutti dall'Italia!!!

Impressive. What's the commercial 2 group behind (in front of) the beautiful La Tarvisium?

Hey, Lucio! Nice post!

The group at MCAL seems like the one the old Bezzera Club has, no?

The La Tarvisium is so nice, seems to have smaller diameter piston chamber, but tall, so the spring can be not so strong but it has to keep the long travel of the lever to draw the right volume...

And a brass Peppina... That would be a dream, no bad pitting corrosion! :twisted:
