We are in the city of Treviso, Italy. Here under the name “La Trevisium” in 1947 will appear a coffee machine that in near future will give rise to a world renown brand, that associates with quality, dedication and innovation.
The company was founded by Umberto Fregnan and is still owned by the Fregnan family.
In the next 3 years the same company will introduce new technologies and features to the coffee machine market. Not only interior but exterior too will be seen as a piece of art. The name “Elektra” comes from the Greek word “elektron” which means a shiny object. It was chosen to highlight the unique combination of functionality and design. This new name will be used since 1965 and will contribute to changes in understanding of coffee machines. Those innovations will be one of many forces that shaped the coffee machine manufacturing industry that we know today.
In passing years “Elektra” will apply more and more new technologies to their product, such as automatic hydraulic unit created in 1950, the seal-free water level regulator designed as early as 1960, the automatic dispensing unit with solenoid valve created in 1968, and the electronic 5-dose dispensing control designed and used as a world first in 1978. Innovating didn’t end there and new arrivals of “Elektra” can still show some new solutions.
Manufacturing coffee machines both for professional use and for home-baristas “Elektra” did a great job in differentiating the needs of their customers.
One can purchase not only modern machines to pull espresso shots and froth milk for cappuccinos but also may find interesting offers from the company for commercial use.
If you are not a prosumer you might be interested in the Heritage line of machinery. Unlike professional-like machines the Heritage line is specially designed to look like an old piece of technology. Yet “Elektra” Heritage coffee machines are safe and easy to use at home while looking artistic and rich.
With the emergence of Specialty coffees “Elektra” answered the demand with Indie, which stands for Independence of group modules. This machine is particularly interesting for its modern design and high-tech features. Being the latest professional coffee machine from “Elektra” Indie has an multi-boiler system, PID-controller and many other features that will help Barista in his or her daily routine. The most exciting part is the system that allows barista to control and change brewing parameters such as temperature and extraction time in real time. One can also choose and change temperature in groups individually. For a little extra you can get an auto-steaming wand which you can program to a specific temperature of milk and even program the amount and texture of foam. Yet models such as Kup, Elektra Barlume and Sixties are still supported. If you don’t fancy a modern coffee machine design you can always choose something more classical.
Speaking of supporting proven classics it is important to look closely at Elektra Barlume.
Being an iconic and beautifully designed machine Barlume definitely is a reminder of 50s style. But appearance is not the only thing good in Barlume. It is a full pledged, coffee bar machine which means that it comes both in two or three groups and 13 or 16 liters boiler. This machine is built to bring stability in quality while working busy shifts. Finally Barlume translates from Italian as shimmering, which it does.
But if those choices are not for either you might want to look “Elektras” Heritage line.
Those machines are impossible to mix with any other manufacturer. The iconic design of the first coffee machines combined with modern understanding of coffee brewing is represented in miniature sizes and in copper, brass or chrome colors. Especially the Mini Verticale model. Decorated with eagle this machine will be a great addition to any hall.
If you are a coffee shop owner and are feeling extra fancy you might want to pay attention to the Belle Époque machine. Being of vertical design and having 3 groups this machine looks monumental. Retro looks and modern components which by hand assembly makes this coffee machine one of the best choices to amaze your guests. And it works just as beautifully as it looks.
But “Elektra” knows not only how to be artsy. They can build minimalistic coffee machines as well. The “Elektra” KUP is just a perfect proof for that statement. KUP features a highly precise temperature control of the brewing groups and a patented water purification system that makes it unrivalled in any competition. The integrated management of consumption and usage data are indispensable elements for those who consider the quality of a coffee machine a sign of distinction.
If you do not have enough space to place a full size coffee machine it will not be an issue.
“Elektra” offers a Sixties model. Whether you choose a 1 or 2 groups it will still fit virtually in any bar and is still capable of consistently serving a lot of coffee.
Currently “Elektra” stands for their manual assembly and quality control.
Every sold coffee machine is tested for 48 hours before shipping. Factory also states that not less than 80% of parts being used in assembly are made in-house.
Buying any machine from the factory one gets a 2-years warranty. Being a premium Italian coffee machine manufacturer brand you can also be sure that your coffee machine will get a lot of attention from customers for its looks.
As the latest arrival of the “Elektra” released in 2020 Verve coffee machine presents a fresh look on versatile and yet technological solutions for different needs, starting from adding a great piece of interior for home baristas to using a beautifully designed coffee machine in a small coffee shop.
Although as of late “Elektra” releases new coffee machines that look modern they still remember their roots and support older models. Proven as classic, Kup and Barlume are still on the market and resemble a merge between traditional design and modern technologies.
Working with ‘Elektra” coffee machines is a pleasant experience. Though some models such as “Elektra” Kup have some unusual design features. One of those is that both steamers and hot water dispensers are placed together as one module. At the same time, the high profile of the machine gives a user an ability to put tall cups or else. All things considered “Elektras” coffee machines in prosumer and professional segments are doing great job pulling shots and frothing milk. The consistency of those shots is great and even in a busy cafe your Elektra Barlume will not let you down.
Speaking of cups and other accessories one might find some on the official website of the company. Starting from tableware and barista instruments and ending on clothes and small on-demand grinder.
“Elektra” always was associated with luxury, innovations and shining design being renowned for the quality of their machinery.
Whether you are looking for a beautifully designed coffee machine for your home or you are in the market for a professional piece of equipment for your coffee shop “Elektra” can supply your demand.
