This machine is a little jewel. We love the Cremina for its superb design, tiny footprint, brilliant espresso and overall terrific performance.
Inside, you’ll find stainless steel, chrome and brass, and perfect manufacturing. Look inside a Swiss watch and you will understand why it carries a price premium. The same applies to the Cremina: Perfect welds and flawless manufacturing.
The Cremina is a manual, non spring lever machine and uses a pre-infusion piston system. Lifting the lever allows for preinfusion- drawing a small amount of water into the piston chamber and wetting the coffee, allowing it to expand. Lowering the lever forces the hot water through the coffee to deliver the espresso.
- The brew group as well as the steam wand and the steam nozzle are made of brass— chromed and polished to a high gloss.
- chrome steel boiler is filled directly by opening the top and has a capacity of 2.1 litres—enough for 20 cups of classic espresso.
- high performance tubular heating element with thermal protection against overheating of the boiler
- conventional domestic pressurestat operating between 0.7 and 0.8Bar to deliver a brew temperature of around 93 °C. High-tech gaskets are used in the Cremina to deliver longevity.
