Description

A true prosumer and light duty commercial espresso machine, the new Expobar Office Lever Plus flawlessly merges commercial capabilities and a consumer-friendly design. An upgrade of the wildly popular Office Lever line, this model has been redesigned to allow it to be plumbed; it also has a new, no-burn steam wand. You’ll have the option of connecting Expobar Office Lever Plus directly to your water supply or using the generous 120oz water reservoir. Heavy users may find plumbing the machine more convenient, as it provides the machine with an endless water supply.

Aside from this insightful upgrade, the Expobar Office Lever Plus retains all of the functionalities that have made it an industry benchmark. The high-end, commercial-grade copper boiler remains standard on this model, ensuring that brewing and steaming operations can be performed seamlessly and simultaneously. As with all Expobars, the E61 Brew Group and professional portafilter are made of chrome-plated marine brass to guarantee maximum temperature stability.

Housed in an elegant, polished stainless steel frame, the Expobar Office Lever Plus comes with a tamper, single and double shot filter baskets, as well as a seven-gram scoop and backflush disc to get you brewing in style.

Please Note: Regulations for commercial use vary between states. Be aware of your local requirements. Machines carrying an NSF approval are labeled as such.

Features & Benefits: Coffee

Plumb-ability

The Expobar Office Lever Plus can be plumbed; this gives you the option of connecting the machine directly to a water source instead of relying on the water reservoir. This model has a unique plumbing system with a solenoid valve on the inlet side, a safety feature that works in parallel with the pump to prevent leaking. Expobar has developed this system to protect your home and machine.

E61 Commercial Brewing Group

The durable E61 Commercial Brew Group is made of heavy-duty, chrome-plated marine brass to ensure superior performance, heat stability, and longevity. Brew-ready temperature is maintained by a thermal siphon, which continuously circulates hot water from the boiler to the brew group, even as the machine idles.

Heat Exchanger Boiler System

The impressive 1.8-liter copper boiler is equipped can brew large quantities, once it heats up. The warm-up period takes about 15 minutes, then the heat exchanger will allow you to steam and brew simultaneously.

Lever Controls and Three-Way Valve

The sophisticated capabilities of this machine are controlled by a simple, user-friendly switch, lever, and two knobs. Turn on the power switch and the machine automatically prepares itself to brew; once the pressure gauge reaches one bar of pressure, you’re good to go! The lever on this Expobar is unique in that it actually functions to release the valve, located within the brew group, and activate the pump to begin the brewing process. Raise the lever to brew. Once you’ve got your espresso, return the lever back to its place, this will open the three-way valve to relieve the water pressure accumulated during the brewing process.

Pressure Controller with Pressure Gauge

Boiler temperature and pressure is managed by a dedicated pressure controller. This unique feature monitors boiler pressure and activates the heating element if the pressure drops. A pressure gauge is mounted on the front panel of the Expobar Office Lever Plus for user reference. Once the gauge’s needle is positioned between 1 and 1.5 bars of pressure, you’re got enough pressure to brew/steam. Within 10 minutes, the thermo siphon will have the brew group heated for optimal brewing results. If you’re in a hurry, run a blank shot through the group to warm it up and prep it for immediate brewing.

Pressure Gauges

The Expobar Office Lever Plus has 2 pressure gauge displays that allow users to easily monitor both brew and boiler pressure making it easier to monitor the extraction parameters.

Commercial-Grade Portafilter

The double-spout, commercial-style portafilter is made of chrome-plated brass for maxiumum temperature stability.

Low-Water Cutoff

A sensor has been mounted in the water reservoir. It monitors water levels and will turn off the machine if the reservoir is low.

Integrated Cup Warmer

A passive cup warmer is located on the top of the Expobar Office Lever Plus, allowing you to preheat your cups.

Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water

Hot Water Dispenser

The steam wand and hot water dispenser are separate on the Expobar Office Lever Plus and controlled by two independent knobs. The dispenser will deliver hot water on demand for teas, hot chocolate, soup and more.

Steam Wand

The no-burn, polished steel steam wand is easy to clean and maintain. It has a generous clearance and can be rotated to accommodate cups of all shapes and sizes.

Features & Benefits: Care and Maintenance

Maintaining your Expobar Office Lever

The Expobar Office Lever Plus should be backflushed every week or week and a half for optimal performance. A backflush disc is included with the machine, for your convenience. Whole Latte Love recommends that you use the Urnex Cafiza Espresso Machine Cleaner for best results. Please refer to our article, “Backflushing your Espresso Machine” for detailed instructions on how to blackflush your machine.
