LaCimbali Cafe Commercial Coffee Machines
100 YEARS OF HISTORY, TECHNOLOGY, DESIGN AND ITALIAN STYLE
MUMAC Opened to the public in 2012, offers visitors the perfect opportunity to take a long walk through the history of Italian industry.
But these are also the steps of a company, Gruppo Cimbali, that has played an important role in this market.
Multi-media and multi-sensory, the evocative experience of MUMAC makes it a contemporary exhibition whilst still retaining the accuracy of a historical journey.
A journey through different periods, via the six rooms displaying the machines, history, design, technology, and industrial and social development of each age.
MUMAC is the ideal place for getting to know the history and technology of espresso coffee machines, but also for understanding the coffee culture (thanks to tastings), organising cultural events, and testing out unique experiences.
The production of coffee machines branded LaCimbali begins (Rapida). The technology of that time is based on a vertically positioned boiler, hence the name of column machines, mainly heated by coal or wood.
With the spread of electricity and the advent of the lever to produce coffee cream, also LaCimbali’s machines undergo a technological revolution. (Ala, Gioiello and Brillante).The lever is a real technological revolution because it creates the necessary pressure to extract everything that gives taste, aroma and body to a cup of coffee.
The “Compasso d’Oro” awards ceremony
In 1962, Pitagora wins the prestigious “Compasso d’Oro” for its strikingly modern design, characterized by simple, clean lines, created by the Castiglioni architects. For the first time, stainless steel, colour and silk-screen are used, all characteristics which allows it to gain unprecedented commercial success.Pitagora is still today the only coffee machine to have won the “Compasso d’Oro”. Pitagora, with its strict lines, laid the path for industrialisation, that is to say the reproducibility in series of LaCimbali products.
In these years the company, in the collaboration with Rodolfo Bonetto, designs historic models such as M15 and M20. In the M20, controls and electrical section are placed in the base in order to make the barista’s work more ergonomic.With these models the machine working side becomes more important than the rear bodywork. With the M15, which is available in the hydraulic, lever and direct injection versions, LaCimbali introduces the novelty of the electrovalve.
