Proud owner of the only 2 Londinium 2 group lever espresso machines in the US! I have long been an admirer of the espresso produced by the old lever machines. The consistency of pressure exerted on the coffee and the consistency of heat plus simplicity has always been attractive. The only problem has been the availability of good machines. Reiss Gunson in the UK, dissatisfied with the crop of Italian made levers, went about creating the Londinium, first a single group and now the 2 group you see in the photo above. No more tin boilers and problems with barista consistency - this beauty uses a spring loaded piston to pressurize the 2oz column of water delivered to the espresso shot and allows an un-pressured pre-infusion to prepare the shot for a smooth finish. Our customers have been delighted with the taste, our baristas have loved being able to actually 'pull' shots. So if you are in the neighborhood of either of our locations, please come and try, we will be delighted to serve you!
