Elektra Verve 1 Group Semi-Automatic Dual Boiler Espresso Machine

Overview:

Our first batch has arrived, and the price is guaranteed to increase!

The Elektra Verve is soon to be Elektra’s newest technologically innovative dual boiler espresso machine! Since the brand is hitting its 52nd year in the specialty coffee industry, it is the perfect time to bring out a machine that is digital, stunning in design, and certainly capable of making the best brews. The Elektra Verve features a PID, which allows you to program the temperature for both the brass coffee boiler and stainless steel steam boiler. Furthermore, you will be able to control the PID as well as other parameters with your smartphone!

The Elektra Verve has a beautiful stainless steel body and fine wood on the side panels as well as the knobs and 58mm portafilter. Different wood options, including oak, ash, and mixed wood (at a higher price) will be available. Although the espresso machine is a semi-commercial grade, it is very suitable to use in your home espresso bar. Additionally, the Elektra Verve will work wonders in your restaurant, coffee shop, or office all thanks to its high levels of adaptability!

Are you actually interested in a similarly designed espresso machine with a heat exchange system instead? Then check out the Elektra T1 Sixties Deliziosa!

Please note that Elektra has decided to start with only one wood option As of August 12, 2020. Other wood options may be available in the future, but there are no expected time frames.

Espresso Machine Warning:

  • ELECTRICAL WARNING: To avoid electrical damage to this espresso machine which is not considered a manufacturer's defect, please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. the lack of the recommended surge suppressor, the espresso machine can be damaged at the power switch, the electronics, the heating element, the pressurstat or the wiring inside.
  • WATER WARNING: To increase the useful life of and not damage your espresso machine, please use softened water. Softened water is water without calcium and without magnesium, but still has other minerals for espresso extraction. Do not use distilled water, purified water, nor reverse osmosis water as these types of water create oxidation with the metals and cause the same damaging effects as limescale.
  • DESCALING WARNING: We do not recommend descaling unless there is an issue with the espresso machine. The reason is that too much descaling can eat away at the metals and gaskets inside an espresso machine.

Two Elektra Verve water softeners – prevents limescale from occurring in your espresso machine. 10 valve gaskets – 2 valve base, 2 valve seal, 2 valve shaft, 2 valve joint, and 2 valve bushing. 2 nozzle housing gaskets for the water valve. 2 filter gasket for the water valve.

      Inexpensive solution. Before ordering the water softener, we would need to check the connection between the Verve's included hose and the water softener.

    6. Is this machine quiet? Specifically do any metal bits rattle while the pump is on? I have a VBM machine purchased from you folks. Good machine but, very, very noisy in an unpleasant way. Stainless steel parts (cover and drain pan assembly) vibrate against each other when pump is active. Makes a terrible noise. Have tried installing cushions with only partial success. Interested int he Elektra Verve but, for the price, I now want a relatively quiet machine, as well as one that makes a great espresso. Thx

      Unfortunately, there 'can' be some rattling as there is some metal to metal contact. The rotary pump is louder than some others, but it is a tradeoff for the higher quality in the cup this machine typically produces. We will have more videos in the near future.

    8. The machine was working well until a few days ago. The water tank is refilled to the top. The espresso extraction still works but the water temperature is not quite hot. Both the steamer and hot water dispense do not function, and the hot water gauge (see attached photo) is at zero, previously the red was at 1 – 1.5 when ready.

    10. In looking at the reviews - it seems the wi-fi connection can move in and out on your device. If you aren't changing temp or infusion (or any other required parameters) - are you able to operate your machine without your phone at all, or is a wifi connection required to operate the machine and pull a shot/steam some milk etc? Thank you.

      We had one customer with a Wi-Fi issue so far. There is no phone application. The machine has its own Wi-Fi which you can connect your phone to. Once connected, you can change settings and then get off the WiFi. The machine still operates just fine.

      For the one customer with Wi-Fi issues, the machine is here in our shop. The only time the Wi-Fi disconnects is when the mobile phone goes into sleep mode. This customer also had another problem with a grouphead error code. The problem was it was leaking water through the group. We had asked the customer to run white vinegar through the grouphead and he refused. After running vinegar through the grouphead, the dripping stopped and the grouphead error code has not returned. Unfortunately, the customer thought it was a 'bad apple' machine, but it has been running in our shop for the past 4 days (including weekends as we come in to catch up).

      First, please use the machine in tank mode for three weeks. We want to make sure there is no issues with the type of water you are using. When plumbing this machine in, please review our commercial espresso machine installation instructions as most of the same applies.

      A The settings automatically are displayed on the phone when connected to the machine's Wi-Fi network. The machine acts as its own Wi-Fi host, and provides settings for preinfusion, water temperature, and night-time sleep mode. There are also settings to reset various counters, such as cleaning and water softener replacement. Turn the key on the front, connect to the machine's Wi-Fi, and then the rest is automatic.

      Answered by the admin

      Sorry, we are unable to answer many questions at this time, because the finalized production version has not been determined. Any answers would only be speculation.

      A According to Java Jim in the video at 2:02 ... you can program preinfusion from 0 to 20 seconds. Just a guess, but because you can set it as long as 20 seconds that would more or less indicate it should also be available on via reservoir. Most high end prosumer machines that use line pressure via a plumbed unit limit the preinfusion time to ranges of less than 10 seconds.
