A big legend in a small body
Mara is placed at the prestige end of the home espresso machine. It combines the best technology ever - the legendary E61 grouphead - and an incredibly compact, full stainless steel body.
The result: a marvellous, appealing object enabling to apply baristas' golden rules and extract the most sensual espressos and cappuccinos you can dream of.
The reasons of a legend
The Mara machine group head made its first appearance in 1961 on an innovative Italian machine from the FAEMA company, the E61. Since then, it has become immediately popular among connoisseurs as the E61 group head. The reasons for this popularity were directly related to the aesthetics of the typically Italian design of the product. But also, the technological developments combined in this group head allowed to considerably improve not only the quality of the espressi but also those of the whole industry.
Milk coffees in a row
Mara features a heat exchanger, a technology that allows to make espresso and steam milk simultaneously and, as a consequence, to make several milk coffees in quick succession. In a heat exchanger the water in the boiler is kept near the boiling point so as to produce steam on demand. This makes all the difference when trying to achieve silky, creamy milk for bar quality flat whites, lattes and cappuccinos.
A trust worthy taste indicator
A perfect extraction derives from a balance between tamping strenght, brew water temperature, grinding settings and blend quality (both in terms of freshness and type). The brew pressure gauge built into LELIT machines shows whether the brew pressure is optimal. Too little pressure indicates an under extraction (insipid flavour), too much pressure indicates an over extraction (bitter, sour flavour). Enjoy yourself adjusting the 4M (Italian: Macchina, Macinatura, Miscela, Mano - Machine, Grinding, Blend and Tamping) as a real barista!
