Lelit continues its innovative streak with the compact Lelit Mara X, altering traditional assumptions about heat-exchange machines and causing legacy brands like ECM and Proifitec to follow suit. The Lelit Mara X allows you to switch between three pre-set brew temperatures and between espresso or steam priority modes, offering a truly tailored espresso experience.

Caffeinated Bliss. I make about 4 shots a day and occasionally need to accommodate a few people at once. This machine is ideal. It looks beautiful. It's small. It's powerful. And it's stable. The folks over at Clive could make you feel comfortable buying snow on a ski slope--their care and depth cannot be overstated.

Need to Know

What is it?

The Mara X is an Italian-designed and built heat exchanger with a large 1.8L boiler, an adjustable three-way temperature switch, an e61 group head, and priority flexibility with its Steam X and Brew X modes. 

Who is it for? 

For the home barista that wants a seamless workflow, approachable controls, and the ability to customize their experience on the fly. The Mara X is perfect for small spaces without compromising on performance. 

Why do we carry it?

Lelit has a penchant for making feature-rich, well-built, attractive, and affordable machines. The Mara X is no different. 

  • Temperature Stability: not standard in traditional heat-exchange units. Lelit adds a dual-temperature probe that targets brew temperatures first in the group head.
  • Three-way switch: you’re able to switch between 197, 201, and 205 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Brew or steam priority: toggle switch for Brew X or Steam X mode, adding flexibility if you only want to brew espresso or both brew and steam milk.
  • Lelit silent pump: quieter than most vibratory pumps, Lelit’s silent pump also offers low-pressure ramp-up as a form of soft-infusion
