Beautiful Machine

Elektra MCL is definitely a beautiful machine no matter which finish you pick. The brass brings out an interesting contrast but has some downsides: 1) Easier to tarnish 2) Areas exposed to water will appear tarnish even faster However, the machine excellent. A last bit of warning, this machine is definitely not for beginner espresso and cappuccino baristas. Unless you get your grind consistency, and tamping techniques refined on a cheaper semi-automatic, you won't be pulling great shots for awhile. I strongly recommend any beginner or people new to lever machines to check out some of the great guides out there.
