One of the many things Italians can boast about around the world is certainly that they invented espresso coffee.
Italian espresso is espresso made to perfection, and we have arrived at this precious invention through several stages.
A journey made up of patents, new technologies and excellent minds at the service of hot water, coffee and atmospheric pressure.
All this has led today to the modern coffee machine, which not only finds its natural habitat in bars, restaurants, holiday farms or bed and breakfasts, but also in the kitchen corner of a private home.
Italy is understandably one of the strongest countries for coffee machines
It is therefore only natural that coffee machines made in Italy are very strong on the market.
The Italian market for espresso machine manufacturers comprises 34 industries, employing more than 1,200 people throughout Italy. It is a very important market, with an industrial fabric that generates around 430 million euros per year.
Of this important turnover, about 75% is destined for foreign countries, where the great success of Made in Italy is more than evident.
All over the world, this expression, Made in Italy, is a guarantee of a very simple concept: made to the highest standards, i.e. without imperfections.
Whether it’s a bar, a hotel, a restaurant, a bed and breakfast or a holiday farm, the excellence of Made in Italy coffee machines is chosen all over the world.
For all these businesses it is essential to have a professional coffee machine, because this drink is an important aspect of their services.
For some it is the signature at the end of an exquisite meal, for others the best way to say good morning.
In fact, exports grew by almost 10% just up to 5 years ago, and by almost 2% up to 4 years ago. This is to give a figure of how the main markets choose to source Italian craftsmanship to make coffee machines.
Pontevecchio models try to encapsulate all these values
This is why Pontevecchio products represent the excellence of coffee machines made in Italy.
Every single model is handmade with wise artisan techniques, to respect the ancient traditions.
Those that have led over the centuries to the modern coffee machine as we understand it today. One invention and artisan discovery after another.
Whether it is the Export model, or the Lusso I or Lusso II, each of our manual coffee machines is a handcrafted piece that has left each of our customers more than satisfied.
We can indeed be proud of our creations and the more than positive reviews we receive.
For us, these are the true celebration of each and every one of our lever machines, because we don’t see ourselves as just coffee machine manufacturers. Rather, we consider ourselves craftsmen who make their made in Italy coffee machines into almost artistic creations.
Our made in Italy coffee machines have been conceived as design objects, elements that enrich the decor of the context in which they are housed.
Not just reliable machines made with excellent materials, but design accessories, as our customers often tell us.
We are inspired by tradition, but with an eye on the future and modernity
The very origin of our name is a tribute to Made in Italy. We take our name from the Ponte Vecchio in Pavia, which in its construction in 1351, first and foremost brought together past and future.
Its architecture, like our machines, is essential and sober, elegant and classical. But in the mathematical calculations that support the vaults, in the rhythm of the colonnades, is hidden the wisdom of those who built it.
Similarly, our lever machines have elegant, essential, dry lines that conceal within them the craftsmanship and reason that guided the hands of those who created them.
So each of our models in its own way represents a bridge. An essential and elegant link between the past traditions of the first models and modern requirements. Just as those who want to be able to enjoy a coffee as good as at the bar but at home do.
With the certainty of having turned to a company that not only respects Made in Italy, but is also present. With our assistance services we follow our customers step by step, accompanying them with any kind of help they may need.
Our Export model in this sense is simply ideal. The lines are minimal, the design is vintage and the lever carries a whole score of actions for making coffee that make tradition. It’s not just making espresso coffee, it’s the original tradition of espresso coffee.
The Lusso I model, on the other hand, has a more solid, three-dimensional presence. It has character, a more solid size and more functions. It has a pressure gauge, for example, to keep the water pressure under control. Above all, it has two lances, which allow you to make not only espresso coffee to perfection, but also exquisite cappuccinos.
The Lusso II is our most generous model. Perfect for bars and restaurants, it has a double group with a stainless steel plate that makes it possible to make as many as four coffees, so you won’t have to worry about a large number of orders.
