Being selective about the beans you buy isn’t enough. To brew the perfect cup of coffee, you must protect that supreme flavor through the entire process.
Two for Coffee
Fagor’s 2MQC-A10X is modern and thoroughly comprehensive, with a cappuccino function ideal for achieving the perfect level of creaminess. This wonder machine can use ground coffee or grind whole beans in no time thanks to a powerful, built-in grinder. Since coffee is sometimes an urgent matter and often prepared for two, this model lets the user make two cups at a time, thanks to its double nozzle.

Modern and Vintage
The X7 Iperespresso by Francis Francis is totally cutting edge. It uses capsules of Illy espresso to perfectly maintain the freshness and delicate flavor from the north of Italy. And the vintage look of this classic line will never go out of style. The coffee comes out at a calculated 176ºF, so it’s never burned, and the water-feed device is incredibly easy to use. Enjoy a little bit of luxury on your coffee break.

The Rocket Espresso Milano is the Rolls Royce of coffeemakers. Experts alone can appreciate just how much precision this model offers. The Giotto has a copper boiler, which improves heat retention, and a steamer that turns out perfect foam. It produces coffee at 197ºF (the upper limit) thus allowing the coffee to produce its rich, natural cream. For discriminating palates only.
