Invention of espresso machine

The first prototype of an espresso machine (made in Italy) was unveiled in the early 1800’s. It was an Italian named Luigi Bezzera who invented the espresso machine. He built a machine that could force water through a series of filters at high pressure. It turned out that not only did it make coffee faster, it also made coffee better.

He filed for a patent in 1901. In 1903, Desidrio Pavoni purchased the patent from Luigi Bezerra and the Pavoni Company started developing coffee machines in 1905 which were based on Luigi’s patent.

The machines produced by the company came to be known as the ‘La Savona’ and became famous immensely.

In 1915, Corning Glass Work’s introduced a coffee maker made from Pyrex. This ovenproof glass was marketed under the name ‘Silex’.

The first espresso machine installed in an American restaurant was at Regio’s, in New York City in 1927. 

The automatic espresso maker began its journey in the 1930’s. One of the first electric coffee machines was made by Willy Brandl.

The most innovative invention of the electric coffee maker was the switch that turned it off after the right time.

In 1933, Dr Ernest Illy invented the first automatic espresso coffee machine. Drawing its inspiration from an Italian invention, the Espresso machine, Nestlé launched Nespresso in 1986.
