Perfection and Innovation
Cremina SL is the perfect lever-espresso machine with a big extra
• Classic swiss design
• Made from the best materials
• Spring loaded group head

Swiss engineering
The Cremina SL combines the tranquility of a hand lever machine with the simplicity of a semi-automatic machine. If you have a soft spot for purely mechanical extraction and do not want to leave constant quality to chance, the Cremina SL is the right choice. The completely redesigned brewing group paired with the solid base of the Cremina give it a unique appearance. Never before a brew group with compression spring has been used on such a compact machine. With each extraction you can experience how the lever moves constantly and slowly upwards, magically, while a perfect espresso flows into your cup below.

Built for a small eternity
Take a look at the inside: what you will encounter is nothing but stainless steel, chrome, brass and perfect manufacturing. The brew group, consisting of group head and portafilter are made of brass—and are of course chromed and polished to a high gloss. The steam wand and the steam nozzle are made of chrome steel which increases the longevity of the machine and facilitates the cleaning. The electric boiler, made of chrome steel is filled by opening the top and has a capacity of 1.8L (3.8 pints)— enough for 20 cups of classic espresso. The default pressure is adjusted to between 1.1 and 1.2 bars and the brewing temperature to 92°C (198°F). A compression spring in the brewing head of the Cremina SL ensures constant brewing pressure. The chrome steel frame and casing are elaborately lacquered with especially resistant powder coating.

The front is made of high gloss polished steel. Frame and casing are lacquered with a highly resistant powder coating. The Cremina SL’s top can be used to pre-heat the espresso cups; the drip tray and the grate can be easily removed and cleaned.
This exceptional manufacturing quality can only be reached, because it remains the engineers’ and designers’ prime goal to build the perfect espresso machine.

Concept

The perfect lever-operated machine – since 1967 virtually unchanged. Over 40 years of perfection. The Cremina is a classic lever-operated espresso machine; no ifs, no buts.

• Classical Swiss Design
• Only premium materials

A masterpiece of Swiss engineering
It works with the proven pre-infusion piston system: lifting the lever draws a small amount of water into the piston chamber and forces it into the pressed ground coffee, allowing it to expand. Lowering the lever forces the hot water through the ground coffee.
This tried and tested extraction procedure, coupled with the continually increasing experience of the individual Cremina owner, guarantees a perfect espresso, a composition of crema, smell and taste — a harmonious pleasure for the senses. Even your ears will be delighted: the only noise produced by your Cremina is the singing, when the boiler heats the water.

Have a look at her inner qualities. You’ll find stainless steel, chrome and brass, and perfect manufacturing.
The brew group, consisting of group head and portafilter, as well as the steam wand and the steam nozzle, are made of brass—and are of course chromed and polished to a high gloss. This increases the longevity of the machine and facilitates the cleaning. The electric boiler, made of chrome steel is filled by opening the top and has a capacity of 3.8 pints—enough for 20 cups of classic espresso.
The high performance tubular heating element has a thermal protection against overheating of the boiler. In order to guarantee a perfect result and longevity, the high-tech gaskets used in the Cremina. The default pressure is adjusted to between 0.7 and 0.8 bars and the brewing temperature to 198 °F. The Cremina leaves it to the skill of the barista to find the required nine bar pressure onto the portafilter by lowering the lever at just the right time.
