Spanish company Quality Espresso have been leading manufacturers of Commercial Espresso Machines for over 60 years. Their equipment range which include international power brands such as Gaggia, Futurmat, Visacrem, Italcrem and Mairali have become the professional benchmark when it comes to commercial espresso and coffee machines. Gaggia has an obvious brand awareness recognition however, Quality Espresso's standard of manufacturing is shared across the range of brands they produce.
Quality Espresso's success story starts with Gaggia in 1952, only four years after Achile Gaggia patented the technique for espresso extraction in Italy. Another 4 years later Faema arrived in Spain too, providing not only competition to Gaggia, but more importantly placing Spain on the map during the rapid expansion of the espresso culture across the Mediterranean in the years that followed.
Both Gaggia and Faema became independent Spanish entities from their parents companies and in 1967 Gaggia developed the Visacrem brand and started exporting their machines. Barcelona soon became the center of innovation making significant contributions to the development of espresso technology; most notably the uncorporation of vertical release electro-valves being fitted underneath the group heads. This feature is now used by all major espresso equipment manufacturers.
Gaggia and Faema were purchased by Quality Espresso in 2001 and headquarters were set in Barcelona.
