Ponte Vecchio Lusso 1 Group Espresso Machine

Ponte Vecchio is an Italian company that has been producing lever home espresso machines since 1999. It was founded by a number of entrepreneurs with over 20 years of experience in the industry of mechanical components for small household appliances. The new Ponte Vecchio Lusso 1 Group V2 has an improvement with the internal steam pipe in the boiler having an extra welding to hold it in place. In older models, this pipe would sometimes break off.


  • Spring piston-operated grouphead – Lever starts in the upward position, the user pulls down against spring until coffee fills the bottom of a demitasse cup, then the lever is slowly released and the spring in the piston 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 halfway point and released.
  • Stainless steel / brass piston.
  • Removable drip tray & cup warming tray.
  • Gauge measures steam boiler pressure (0 – 2.5 bar) located on the right.
  • Visual control of water level located underneath the gauge.  Keep an eye on this control when filling the boiler.
  • Fixed-position 3-hole steam wand located on the left and fixed-position hot water wand located on the right.  Both are activated by rotational knobs on the left and right side of machine.  Turn counter-clockwise to activate; counter-clockwise to deactivate.
  • Indicator lights on the left side of machine.  The upper left light is the heating light. It is on when the machine is heating up; off when the machine is ready to use.  The lower left light is the water light.  It is on when the water in the boiler is too low; off when the water in the boiler is at optimal level.
  • Grouphead and portafilter made from a chrome-plated brass casting: unit preheated by forced circulation of hot water from boiler, always ready for use at optimum operating temperature.
  • Accessories included: Dual spout portafilter, non-E.S.E. pod filter basket, 1-cup filter basket, 2-cup filter basket, plastic coffee tamper, metal scoop, plastic funnel, instruction manual.

      Boilers are special order. Please use the contact us form on the top of our web site.

      This usually happens with limescale or oxidation. It is best to loosen and clean with a wire brush and test. If it still leaks, the compression fitting can be removed and then silver soldered. Otherwise, the entire boiler will need to be replaced. We have seen boilers on various machine with corrosion from limescale and oxidation in as little as 2 weeks of ownership in those really bad cases.

      Sorry, the demand for 220 volt machines is very low, and we wish not to import a 220 volt model as then we are forced to stock parts for the 220 volt version for one machine sold. 

      You may be able to purchase a 20 volt model from an international vendor, but please keep in mind that parts for the 220 volt may take an international vendor a long time to get parts to you.

      In bad cases, a milk cleaners should be used.

      Instead of descaling, soft water should be used. You can make water soft with an Oscar150 osmotic pack.

      Use the parts diagram under the parts section of the top PARTS link on our web site. The three seals on the piston should be changed every 6-24 months depending upon usage. A special tool is needed.

      In addition, the grouphead gasket and dispersion screen in the grouphead should be changed every 6-12 months depending upon usage.
