World leader in Coffee Machines since 1945
Produced in MILAN, ITALY
Carlo Ernesto Valente opens a coffee machine factory in Milan: the "Factory Electro Mechanical and Associated Equipment" ("Fabbrica Apparecchiature Elettro Meccaniche e Affini” - FAEMA).
FAEMA was to become synonymous with the post-war production boom in Italy, by actively pursuing technological innovation as the company's driving force.
In 1961 FAEMA launches the E61, the first machine to use a volumetric pump to push the water onto the coffee cake at a pressure of 9 atmospheres needed to produce the espresso, a process that replaces the use of the lever.
Furthermore, the E61 optimises the pre-infusion principle: by wetting the ground coffee for a few seconds before starting the delivery, you achieve the maximum extraction of aromatic substances.
Even when Carlo Ernesto Valente decided to withdraw from public life, the company continued to produce models which are a perfect combination of technical innovation, design and the quality of the coffee produced
Designed by Ettore Sottsass and Aldo Cibic, Faematronic is the first traditional machine with electronic dosage and a display to control the operating parameters. When it was released in 1983, it was the first traditional electronic espresso machine with dosage controls.
Now based in Binasco, a region south of Milan. FAEMA equip baristas all over the world with a range of machines that amaze and assist them. Because they want to emphatically and clearly communicate the idea that they support coffee lovers and believe that those who work with passion and determination deserve the best.
Today, its professional machines anticipate market needs and the innovative functionality and design of its products provide baristas with the perfect instrument for expressing their tale
