The Astoria Rapallo AL3 is a three group professional lever operated espresso machine. Photos shown are the 2 group model for demo purposes.
It is a modern replica of Astoria's first standard production espresso machine built in 1968.
This lever/manual control machine is a simply designed machine, but it requires more training than the semi-automatic Rapallo.
If you are looking for a traditional way of brewing the best of espresso the Rapallo has the look and the power to do it right.
This version brews coffee by releasing the spring activated lever-piston.
Each pull delivers a 1 oz. size espresso coffee.
Connecting hoses and three portafilters supplied with machine.
Please Note: Lever-action groupheads require a longer recovery time between shots in order to dissipate pressure. This machine is a great machine, but it may not be optimal for your shop with a busy drive-thru. In the case of a high traffic shop, the semi-automatic Rapallo might be a better fit.
