Not sure this is a spring loaded lever machine. Can you post a picture of the machine in question ? I believe there are a few variants of this machine including lever and none lever. The lever version is referred simply as the Brazilia Portofino Leva or Lever.
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.
