Spella Caffe in Portland roasts its own outstanding blends, and pulls all shots with a lever. As mentioned above, Mr. Spella has a cart at SW 9th and Alder, but now he also has a tiny indoor shop on SW 4th.

Downtown Subscription, Santa Fe, NM
Three group San Marco; the espresso wasn't that tasty.
Reading the Sunday newpaper out back in the garden was a big plus.

Just returned from Morocco where my wife was playing a concert in tetuan and to my surprise every coffee shop there had a lever machine. Mostly gaggias and Astorias. The town had an incredible coffee culture. Though actually only men were in the coffee shops. Even the smaller convenience stores/stalls had levers. And the espresso excellent. Best one was on the pedestrian walk on the right just before the royal palace.

Did you snap any pics? Would love to see them if you did.

I have one picture of the inside of a repair shop in the old city of Tetuan. Seems tetuan could be a great place to find an old machine. If my wife will be invited to play there again next year I may try and bring one home.

Mizuna, Spokane, WA

While enjoying the vegetarian fare at Mizuna in Spokane, I noticed that they have a Cafethema single group. I had not seen one in commercial operation prior to today. Since Atticus is next door, I went there for my coffee however.

Two entries from Brooklyn, NY:

Oslo Coffee - the location at 328 Bedford Ave has a lever machine and pulled me a good shot once.

Blue Bottle - the cafe/roastery at 160 Berry St has a Marzocco and a lever machine.

Both cafes are within a short walk of one another.

909 Cafe & Wine
909 SW 152nd St
Burien, Wa 98166
Vitoria Arduino 2 group
(A very pretty machine)
Gusto Crema Blend by Cafe Umbrio, Seattle, WA

Image

The barista flushed the group just before pulling my shot.
Results: Thin with little creme, and not much flavor, Bitter but at
least not burnt.
Another uninspiring shot from a cafe that could do better.

I think my home levers have really spoilled me. I want richness and
flavor!

Do they use the lever machine? There's a nice lever machine in their Mint Building location in SF but whenever I've been in there it wasn't in use.
