La Spaziale - the building of a La Spaziale espresso machine

This is the amazing story of La Spaziale and how this wonderful family business has become so successful in building some of the very finest espresso machines in the world.

La Spaziale in Bologna now build over 13,000 machines each year, all by hand!

La Spaziale machines are now exported worldwide to many countries with the UK being one of the most successful markets.

This is a real family run business with the original owners still being involved and the family going from strength to strength. The factory is very welcoming and has an onsite coffee shop called Jakarta which is worth visiting. The very first models are put to the test here.

This page shows you how much work really goes into building these toys for baristas. Enjoy!

La Spaziale

La Spaziale in Italy.

La Spaziale

It all started with the dream of three passionate Italians in Bologna in 1969.

La Spaziale

The building of an espresso machine starts by loading the metal sheets ready for cutting.

The cutting is done by a laser to extreme precision.

La Spaziale

Each machine has a very precise print design.

The result is a consistent and perfect design.

The finishing touches are added by hand.

Once all the sheets and frames are made they are sent off to the main La Spaziale factory.

Once the individual parts are built, a trolley is made which contains all the components for the specific model.

La Spaziale

Each staff member builds the machine by hand, it takes three hours to put the beauties together. All machines are made to order which gives freedom to many different variations of each model.

We start with the basic frame, then the pump, then the PCB and the rest...
