Get buzzed beholding one of the world’s largest coffee-machine collections, then step into the café for a specially brewed cup.
The museum was created in 2012 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Gruppo Cimbali, an Italian company whose two main brands of professional espresso and cappuccino equipment, LaCimbali and Faema, are considered by some as the Ferraris of the café world.
Inside the museum are hundreds of vintage espresso machines, ranging from unique prototypes to industrial successes that were game-changers for baristas across the globe. And it’s not only Cimbali products; you’ll also see machines by companies such as La Marzocco, Kees van der Westen, Elektra, and Vibiemme.
The museum is open Tuesday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Entrance is free and audio-guides are available in 10 different languages. Guided tours for groups are available for a fee.
