Lelit MaraX Espresso Machine
The Lelit MaraX is an E61-type group having automatic brew temperature control that allows all users to easily pull the perfect espresso shot. The Mara X eliminates the long waiting time in between, that was typical of the E61-type groups. PLEASE NOTE: Because this is a brand new model from Lelit and we are receiving some of the first production, the Review for this machine won't be available until the Spring. The prototype machine has been with our reviewer since May 2019 and feedback was given to Lelit for modications and we have been waiting for the production machines to allow us to do the final review.
LELIT MARA X SPECIFICATION
Its brand-new double probe system, patented by Lelit, keeps brew temperature constant so as to yield the best performance for each single shot.
MaraX has been designed to allow anyone to make an espresso as good as it tastes at a café by using an E61 group.
When using MaraX you won’t need to worry about brewing temperature. A new switch located behind the drain tray allows the user to choose the desired temperature by merely pressing warm, hot or extra hot.
Its pump provides a water flow suitable for different coffee types and roasts.
MaraX comes equipped with a sophisticated power saving system that reduces the pressure in the steam boiler when not in use, keeping an 80% heating efficiency whilst still guaranteeing machine reactivation within a ten-minute span. This means saving a lot of power and eliminating unnecessary waste.
EASY ACCESSIBLE WATER TANK
The new etched reservoir makes filling and cleaning comfortably easy thanks to its completely opened top. It is equipped with devices that memorise the number of loadings to simplify the replacement of the water softening filter.
IT MEASURES BREWING PRESSURE
MaraX’s double pressure gauge allows you to control both the steam boiler pressure and the pump pressure. The brewing process starts from the pre-infusion and ends with the coffee being poured straight into the cup.
COOL TOUCH STEAM WANDS
Lelit’s new steam ergonomic wands are all Cool Touch to avoid getting burnt. Cleaning has been made simple to prevent scale formation giving the user yet another advantage contributing to the full enjoyment of espresso making.
