Issue 1 - The Lever Magazine


The first issue of The Lever Magazine represents the birth of this project. What started out as just an idea to create a booklet where we would gather together some interesting stories about lever espresso machines but then became something much bigger. Compared to the other issues we released later, the first one is certainly of lower quality, more immature, but it represents the origins where everything started and therefore has a special meaning for us.
