Making a coffee machine is not simply assembling brass and sheet steel components, certainly not for us at Pontevecchio.
Our coffee machines are more than machines.
Just as an espresso coffee is not simply banal hot water passing through ground coffee beans. There is science behind it.
So our espresso machines are more than just machines. Behind them is passion, historical experience and meticulous craftsmanship.
For us, the modern coffee machine represents the achievement of a historical path that has sedimented the studies and traditions of true traditional espresso coffee.
In the mechanics hidden inside our manual coffee machines you can recognise the evolutionary steps that one improvement after another have led to excellence.
Our company has thirty years’ experience in the sector, which has come together with the group of people who founded it more than twenty years ago, and who have chosen to make craftsmanship, attention to detail, sober, essential and elegant design, and durability the strong points of their coffee machine production.
These strengths, together with the attention paid to tradition and the study of the roots of craftsmanship, are the values that make up the made in Italy of this company.
The modern coffee machine is rooted in tradition
When the study of craftsmanship reaches levels of historical and traditional depth, one can rightly speak of artistic production.
All the craftsmen who collaborate in the creation of our professional machine have the participation of contributing to a collective artistic work. They are aware that their contribution is part of a choral collaboration which, thanks to this unique synergy, will produce art. Unique every time in every piece.
Our values are reflected in our name
In fact, we have chosen to reflect our values in our company name, which comes from the historic Ponte Vecchio in Pavia. We reflect ourselves in this work because we share its reliability, the choice of solid materials that do not fear time, the search for beauty in concrete functionality.
In fact, compared to its contemporaries, the bridge sought to achieve unusual levels of grace and architectural beauty: just as we do every time we make a modern coffee machine.
Moreover, just like the historic bridge, our machines are intended to be a solid link between the past with its tradition and the present with its modernity.
We treat our coffee machines as handcrafted works of art
Our distribution of coffee machines is intended to be like that of handcrafted works of art, where the person who made it puts his or her signature on it as a guarantee of the care taken in each step. In fact, each of our machines has its own handmade seal, as if it were a slightly different and original signature each time.
Our machines are all different in the smallest details, precisely because they are handcrafted and handmade, and therefore unique: no two models are perfectly identical.
An object that has been assembled with love and care from the first screw to the steam wand, from the pressure gauge to the complex hidden piping system. Where all the hands that worked together were artist’s hands, skilled in every gesture that embodied tradition.
Each of our machines is a unique piece of craftsmanship
Only this kind of participation allows us to create a company that lives on the passion it puts into every single machine it makes, into every modern coffee machine that bridges tradition and the new, with reliable solidity.
We invite you to participate in our passion: discover our models and choose the one most suitable for you, in all of them you will find what distinguishes Pontevecchio machines: our passion.
