In Spain, the brands manufactured by Quality Espresso are the benchmarks used by foodser vice professionals when considering commercial espresso and cappuccino coffee machines. Gaggia is probably the first brand to come to mind due to historic reasons. Gaggia arrived in Barcelona in 1952, four years after Achile Gaggia filed the patent for espresso coffee extraction in Italy. In 1956, a competitor arrived in Spain in the shape of Faema. The presence of these two brands in Barcelona meant that Spain participated from the start in the expansion of Mediterranean espresso culture.
The Gaggia and Faema entities in Spain eventually separated from their parent companies. The former had created the Visacrem brand in 1967 and began selling in export markets under this brand. The latter created the Futurmat brand in 1978, and this rapidly expanded to become the number one selling brand in Spain.
One of the key contributions to espresso technology is the incorporation of vertical release electro-valves under the group heads, which was developed in Barcelona, and is now used by all our competitors. In 2001, Quality Espresso purchased these two historic brands. With its headquarters in the Barcelona factory built by Faema in the 1960’s, Quality Espresso sells espresso equipment around the world under the brand names Futurmat, Gaggia, Visacrem, Italcrem, and Mairali (the latter two brands having been created in 1957 and 1989 respectively).

COFFESSO COFFEE MACHINE
POD COFFEE MACHINE
POD coffee machines are the perfect choice to be enjoyed at home, hotels or even offices, allowing coffee lovers to have an espresso quest without the hassle of storing multiple bags of coffee beans or having to clean the coffee machine every time the coffee beans need replacing. They produce consistent results that are notoriously difficult to attain using standard espresso machines and most bean-to-cup models.
