Over 60 years ago, the Elektra company began producing some of the finest Italian espresso machines. This unique espresso machine features traditional design and state of the art technology and each machine is put together by hand by a skilled craftsman. Elektra espresso machines feature a 2 year warranty.
The easily recognizable Elektra espresso machine features a sand casted eagle on the top and the Elektra seal on the body of the machine. The machines have a truly unique and elegant feel to them and add instant sophistication to any espresso bar, restaurant, office, or home kitchen.
Founded by the Fregnan family, Elektra believes in producing user friendly, easy to use espresso machines however, unlike many of their competitors, Elektra does not produce super automatic espresso machines. Instead, the company manufactures its espresso machines with manual portafilters believing that this allows users to create the finest espresso.
The company creates 80% of the parts used in its machines in house and only outsources a small amount of manufacturing. They use only copper for its innovative boiler system and each machine is tested for a minimum of 48 hours before it is sent to a customer. The Elektra espresso machine has long been touted for its longevity and dependability.
In fact, due to its elegant design and superior functionality, the Elektra espresso machine has been featured in many luxury home magazines and lifestyle publications. The famous Harrods department store in London and the iconic Café Florian in Venice use these machines to prepare espresso.
1st in Coffee proudly features several Elektra models and our customer service line is open 7 days a week to offer expert advice about this beautiful machine. All Elektra espresso machines come with a two year warranty.
It seems that World War II and its aftermath was a primetime to make coffee. Although cafes had been in operation in Italy long before the Germans, then Americans came to the country in droves during the conflict, it was during this period that a number of espresso manufacturers either began production or got into the espresso machine business. One of these was Elektra.
Headquartered in Treviso, Italy, Elektra began operations in 1947. A young man was captivated by his father’s love of espresso and the social gatherings it inspires. The father’s love of espresso inspired his son to begin manufacturing a unique machine design that is regarded as one of the best, and most unique brands, of espresso machines.
One of the cornerstones of the Elektra name has been innovation. During the company’s history, they are responsible for a multitude of patents that have revolutionized the company and the industry. Elektra has stayed true to the original product also. They only produce espresso machines and accessories because the love of the original has been passed down through the generations in this family owned and operated company. It is a matter of pride that they are still able to produce a high quality product because they have improved and refined it.
