After 100+ years of building espresso machines, Bezzera has created a true timeless classic. Dating back to the origins of the term "pulling a shot" the Bezzera Strega successfully recreates the joy and simplicity of a lever actuated machine while adding modern convince touches compared to the original versions.

Stand Out Features
Spring operated lever group - The linear spring extraction mechanism in a lever machine creates a perfect espresso that even modern pump activated machines are still trying to replicate.
Electronically heated grouphead - Using two powerful barrel heaters, the Strega actively heats the lever group for better thermal stability and constant shot temps.
Silent operation - When the Strega is plumbed in to a water line, the natural water pressure is all that is needed to run the machine and the pump can be deactivated for completely silent operation.
Commercial grade pressurestat - With virtually no electronic parts, Bezzera had extra space to use a full size commercial pressure stat for greater consistency and longevity.
Purchase at your own risk - While it would seem counterintuitive to actively not recommend a machine, a lever actuated machine is recommend for enthusiasts only or someone who is familiar with the quirks of operating a lever actuated machine.
