It is 1961 and Faema writes an important page of its history and the history of professional espresso machines by launching the E61 model.
An icon and legend in the traditional espresso machine industry, the Faema E61 has become the staple espresso machine for authentic Italian espresso.
E61, a tribute to the solar eclipse that fell in Italy in that year, is the first machine to use a volumetric pump, to give water the ideal pressure of 9 atmospheres, keeping it constant throughout the entire dispensing process, contrary to what it happened with lever machines.
Automatic recovery of water in the boiler, built-in volumetric pump, two pressure gauges for pump and boiler pressure control and adjustable thermal balancing system (Faema patent). E61 is available in the semi-automatic version "Legend" and in the automatic version "Jubilé", which provides for the dosage of water and coffee selections.
In the E61 Legend, thanks to the lever, the extension of the contact time between the water and the ground coffee before extraction for optimal extraction of all the organoleptic properties of the espresso.
Thermal balancing system to regulate water temperature by mixing water heated by the heat exchanger with mains water (available for thermosiphonics).
To give the water the ideal 9-atmosphere pressure and keep the pressure constant during the whole extraction process, unlike lever machines
