For sale is my Bezzera Strega lever espresso machine.

Excellent condition with the odd very faint scuff mark to the chrome if you look hard, perfect working order. Bought new from Bella Barista in August 2015. I have only ever used Everpure filtration system treated water with the machine.


Supplied with Bezzera naked and double portafilters, and associated baskets (not pictured). I think I also have all the paperwork (somewhere) that came with the machine.


This is the reservoir version

For those who might not realise, the Strega isn’t like any other lever machine. The grouphead is heated, so comes up to temperature very much quicker than a traditional design. The group is filled by the pump directly once the lever is fully down, so it is possible to do a pure lever shot, a lever shot with the pre-infusion of the duration and pressure of your choice (judged by feel), or if you keep the lever in the down position throughout, a totally pump-based shot.

In short, it’s a lot of fun, and I found it possible to get consistently very good results from it by playing with pre-infusion techniques. If you like a rich chocolately shot, I can show you how to get one every time with this machine, the right beans and a decent grinder


So why am I selling it? Basically, I got offered a brand new LM Linea Mini at a daft price and couldn’t resist. The LM is a great machine, but I'm already missing the feel and satisfaction of pulling a lever shot...

Location - London NW2. Collection preferred but delivery might be possible subject to prior agreement, though only over a fairly small radius.


Any questions, feel free to ask. I will put it on ebay if it hangs around on here as with the new machine already installed, the Strega needs to be moved on to a new home soon.

If only this was the good old US of A, it would have flown out of the door seeing as how it is probably the best lever machine in the world....although not made by Carlsberg!

Hmm. Thanks for the interest, but I'm pretty sure that's not going to work - I don't have the original box, nor really to sort out buying materials, researching who to send it with...


Thanks anyway though

No worries - if we had a trip North planned for any time soon I'd have been happy to arrange something, but it might be two or three months before we make it next
