Heat-Exchange Boiler

Brewing and steaming are handled by a 1.5 liter copper heat exchange boiler. At 1500 watts, it's one of the most powerful we've seen on a machine of this size. For improved frothing performance, the gauge on the top right of the machine allows you to keep an eye on steam pressure when preparing milk beverages.

E61 Group Head

Made from chrome-plated brass, the legendary E61 brew group uses a thermosyphon system to ensure temperature stability while brewing. By circulating water from the boiler to the group, it ensures that heat isn’t lost when the water reaches the portafilter. This makes the Elba 3 more temperature stable, enabling it to deliver great tasting coffee shot after shot.

Adjustable OPV and Dual Pressure Gauge

Accessible from the back of the machine, the OPV can be used to modify pressure at the brew group. The Elba 3’s pressure gauge monitors both brew and steam pressure so you can get immediate feedback when making adjustments.

Fully Detachable Drip Tray

The Elba 3’s unique design has the machine supported by six legs instead of the typical four. As a result, the drip tray can be completely removed for easier cleaning. You can also fit incredibly tall cups under the brew spouts as long as you put something beneath the solenoid valve.
