Faema E61
Espresso Machine 1961
My favourite classic espresso machine. This machine was a real ground breaker(pun intended). It introduced many ‘firsts’ which are still commonly found in most espresso machines. The most significant was having pressurized water through a mechanical pump at  9 BAR, replacing the piston-lever designs of the 1950s. Faema also introduced a new grouphead that was kept warm by circulating water from the boiler through the grouphead in a thermosyphon circuit.
