Make the most of your Kitchen counter space with the Lelit Mara X Espresso Machine. A compact, uber-consistent heat exchanger that prioritizes espresso quality over everything else, the Mara X eschews traditional espresso machine wisdom to make some of the best espresso in its segment. Unlike traditional heat-exchange machines that set steam pressure directly at the boiler, the Mara X uses a second sensor at the group to target brew temperatures first. A physical toggle behind the drip tray lets you set from 3 temperatures (197, 201, or 205 degrees); while a switch on the side of the machine offers two selectable brew modes. For espresso, select 'Xmode Coffee' to get the best temp consistency for coffee-only drinks. Switch to 'Xmode steam' to increase steam pressure after brewing for better milk frothing. More than just a technical marvel, the Mara X features a bevy of barista-saving benefits too: silent pump design, long-ramp preinfusion, a dual pump and steam pressure gauge, optional standby mode, an ergonomic portafilter, and a custom-fit precision tamper right out of the box. Between its high-tech temp management and user-centric design, the Mara X makes an excellent coffee companion for any enthusiast.

  • Compact Espresso Machine: The Mara X's 9x16 footprint makes it one of the smallest prosumer machines on the market.
  • Temperature Stability: A patented dual-probe temperature management setup makes the Mara more sensitive to brew temps than E61-style machines.

  • Custom Pump: A specially designed pump offers quieter operation and a long pressure ramp that functions as a soft preinfusion.
  • Adjustable Temperature: A dedicated 3-way switch lets you choose your Mara X's brew temperature (197, 201 or 205 degrees).

    • Pros
      • Easy, Excellent Coffee: The Mara X's combination of temp management and slow pressure ramp made dialing in and drinking coffee exceedingly easy.
      • Attention to Detail: From the fun portafilter design down to the isolated case touchpoints, its clear the Mara X was a labor of love in its crafting.
      • Reserve Mode: The Mara X is the first machine we've used that doesn't cut your shot short when you run out of water. The water sensor triggers a little early, allowing you to finish your shot before going for a refill.
    • Cons
      • Design Style: The Mara X's focus on functionality comes with a few small tradeoffs: a single wall case, low-profile feet, and cramped brew lever among them.
