Expobar Office Leva

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am looking at upgrading my set up at some time in the hopefully not too distant future. I currently own a Sage duo temp pro which I am very pleased with but want to move on.

I've been looking at the Rocky Appartamento, the Bezzera BZ 10 and the Expobar Office Leva. My one concern with the Leva is the filling of the water tank. I don't want to have to pull the machine out to take the water tank out (it would be under cupboards) but the hole in the water tank seems quite small. Do any of you mange to fill the tank using a jug?

Best wishes, Teresa

I use a plastic funneland pour straight from a spring water bottle. Easy peasy http://www.the-home-brew-shop.co.uk/acatalog/Funnels.html

I do the following:

1) Take the lid off

2) Stick my finger in the hole/top of the tank (right hand)

3) Lift 2-3 inches

4) Pour direct from Volvic bottle (left hand)


This way I can see the level as it fills up and not overfill/spill...... because it ALWAYS takes just a little bit less than a full bottle.......

There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Manic Obsession"
