Ponte Vecchio Export Spring Piston Lever Espresso Machine


The Ponte Vecchio Export is now available in different color body styles!

Manual lever operation:

  • Spring piston operated – The lever starts in up position. You then pull down against spring until coffee fills bottom of the your cup. When you release, the lever slowly rises and the piston spring pushes the lever to pump the water through the coffee grinds. If making double, it is important to pull the lever down a second time at the half way point and released. This kind of lever operation on the Ponte Vecchio Export is superior to other lever models without it. This is due to the pressure being consistent throughout the extraction.
  • Heating light – The heating light, which is on the bottom front of the machine, indicates when the machine is ready. The light will turn on indicating the water in the boiler is heating up. The light will turn off when the water in the boiler is at optimal temperature.

Brass boiler:

  • Safety valve – This helps prevent the boiler from overheating.
  • Water level indicator – This gives a visual indication of the water level in the boiler. This also helps when filling the boiler to prevent from over filling. When filling, keep an eye on the indicator. Once it is half full, slowly pour water in a little at a time, until it is about 3/4 full.
  • Cup heater – Passive heating from the boiler will warm up your cups. The tray has an angle design, so any cups will not accidentally slide off

Steam wand:

  • Fixed position – Doesn’t stick too far out from the machine. This keeps the overall width low.
  • 3 hole – More holes result in faster milk frothing.

Accessories included:

  • Portafilters – Dual spout portafilter. 45 mm size head.
  • Filter baskets – 1-cup filter basket which holds approximately 7 grams. 2-cup filter basket which holds approximately 11 grams. Pod filter basket which takes standard E.S.E. pods. 45 mm in diameter.
  • Tamper – A cheap plastic tamper. Manufacturers will normally include a tamper like this to keep the overall selling price of the machine low. This tamper is sufficient enough to make a quality shot.
  • Coffee scoop – A simple metal scoop if you are using preground coffee. A nice upgrade from the usual cheap plastic scoops found with other espresso machines.
  • Instruction manual – Simple to read manual written in 5 languages: Italian, English, German, French, Spanish.

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.

      Sorry, we currently do not have this part in stock. This is a part that usually does not fail. We would need to special order it.

      Depending upon your version, it is usually one of these two Mater pressurstats: 1/8th" thread or 1/4" thread.

      It is best to check your machine to confirm it is a Mater pressurestat and its thread size before ordering.

      You may need a new Ponte Vecchio Export boiler cap with a new gasket. Otherwise, it can be the threading on boiler.

      A Turns out it was the threads on the boiler not allowing the cap to seat fully. Cleaned up the threads with a M22x1.5 re-threading die and it's working fine now.
