Elektra Verve Dual Boiler Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine

The Verve is 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 the 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 of 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.

3 reviews for Elektra Verve Dual Boiler Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine 110V

  1. Brian (verified owner)

    This is an excellent, capable machine. I just unboxed mine and made some espressos.

    The portafilter baskets come in 7gr and 17gr sizes, along with a blind basket for cleaning. When making your shots, you need to give yourself a little time to practice. While this machine does have a handle on it, it only operates an electrical switch, and cannot be used to feather the shot. You need to shut off the flow a little bit before the desired target weight. A Rancilio portafilter also fits, so if you have baskets that don’t fit in the Elektra portafilter, you can use an alternative.

    The espresso pressure on mine came set at 10 bars. There is an adjustment on the bottom of the machine for the pressure. The steam and the hot water seem to be fine. I didn’t have any milk handy, so I didn’t try immediately.

  2. dave.nadeau (verified owner)

    Elektra Verve what a spectacular machine, mine arrived 12-11-20, First Class job palletizing the machine. Plenty of hot water and steam, love the PID on the brew boiler. So far all is great. Thanks Java Jim!

  3. Scotty Gaboff

    Have it exactly 2 weeks now. Didn’t plumb in yet at Jim’s request. Makes good espresso. The internal WiFi gets lost occasionally and won’t come back until you shut the power off and back on again, which is definitely an issue with anything new especially at $3500. I know the is 1st generation, so I hope this problem will be addressed. Unfortunately since the machine has its own WiFi and doesn’t read an external one, the only way I see this issue being fixed is having to be taken in and not possible through a wireless update
    Other than that, the only other issue is no matter how far in advance you warm it up, it still requires a 3 second group flush before the saturated group boiler starts to warm, which takes about 9 or 10 additional minutes. If you power off and on the already warmed up machine due to WiFi loss, the machine again asks for that 3 second flush, but will only take about 2 minutes to say its “ok” to brew
    If the above gets resolved, I will update and up my initial rating

  4. Hi, I have seen in your catalog two machines that interest me, the Elektra Verve and the VBM domobar super digital. I would like to know in your opinion which machine seems better to you. I see that the Elektra no longer has the classic e61 group but a saturated group with programmable pre-infusion. Which group do you think is better? Which coffee maker is more durable? What machine would you buy? Thank you very much again. Salu2 ; Diego

    Sorry, these are questions we would not answer online. Both machines are very good, but the Verve is a newer model so difficult to get long term reliablity. Both make excellent espresso.

  6. My Eletra Verve Espresso machine will not start. I have power and the water tank is full and I can hear the switch at the bottom under the water tank click. When I push the power button it turns red but that's it no pumps turn on or anything just silent. Just wondering if I'm missing something?

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

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

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?

    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.

    Since  every installation is different, it is best to email us for support.

    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.

    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.

    Sorry, due the situation in Italy, the Verve will most likely be available in 3rd or 4th quarter this year. Yes, it is 58mm baskets. Sorry, we are unsure about the amperage until we have more information from Elektra.

  48. How many more weeks until available? Will you be offering an unboxing, setup video soon as well?
