The narrowest professional machine in its category, ideal for tight spaces (220 mm - 9 inches)

A big legend in a small body

Mara is placed at the prestigious end of the home espresso machine. It combines the best technology ever - the legendary E61 group head - and an incredibly compact, full stainless steel body. The result: a marvellous, appealing object enabling you to apply baristas' golden rules and extract the most sensual espressos and cappuccinos you can dream of.

The reasons for a legend

Mara’s group head first appeared in 1961 on Italian FAEMA’s innovative E61 machine. Since then it became instantly recognizable by those in the “know” as the E61 group head. The reasons for this popularity are linked primarily to the aesthetic appeal produced by this object of Italian design. Just as important, the technological innovations introduced together with this group head noticeably improved espresso quality and even the espresso machine industry as a whole.

PID temperature controller

The built-in PID temperature controller ensures stable brew water temperature which is vital for great tasting espresso. It also ensures the brewing water is at the right temperature to make great espresso and gives the ability to change the brew water temperature depending on the type of coffee beans used.

Milk coffees in a row

Mara features a heat exchanger, a technology that allows to make espresso and steam milk simultaneously and, as a consequence, to make several milk coffees in quick succession.

In a heat exchanger, the water in the boiler is kept near the boiling point so as to produce steam on demand. This makes all the difference when trying to achieve silky, creamy milk for bar quality flat whites, lattes and cappuccinos.

A trustworthy taste indicator

A perfect extraction derives from a balance between tamping strength, brew water temperature, grinding settings and blend quality (both in terms of freshness and type).

The brew pressure gauge built into LELIT machines shows whether the brewing pressure is optimal. Too little pressure indicates an under extraction (insipid flavour), too much pressure indicates an over-extraction (bitter, sour flavour). Enjoy yourself adjusting the 4M (Italian: Macchina, Macinatura, Miscela, Mano - Machine, Grinding, Blend and Tamping) as a real barista!

Benefits of pairing with a good grinder

If the coffee flavour is your primary concern, your machine must be paired with a quality burr grinder. Here is something you need to understand about coffee: ground coffee is stale within minutes. With an espresso machine and no grinder, you would be forced to use pre-ground coffee, which is unavoidably stale. You can't make great espresso at home - or anywhere - without a quality burr coffee grinder.
