Trying to establish a list of home or pro-sumer spring assisted lever machines.
Feel free to add more or correct.

1) Elektra Microcasa a Leva, (C.I.P)
2) Ponte Vecchio Lusso (C.I.P)
3) Ponte Vecchio Export, (C.I.P)
4) La Peppina, (O.O.P) (inferior metal quality) [open boiler]
5) Londinium (C.I.P)
6) Salvatore (C.I.P)
7) Faema Faemina (O.O.P)

* Zacconi Riviera (New versions no longer spring assisted)


* C.I.P. ~ Currently in production
* O.O.P ~ Out of production
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.

This is great. Looking back reading some of your lists, I'm wondering how I could have missed these.
Yes, interested in vintage and new s.a.l machines. (Spring assisted lever)
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.

I wouldn't consider either one of these home or prosumer machines.
