On the Bench at Officina Maltoni

A haven dedicated to manual espresso machine aficionados.

I visited Enrico Maltoni at his workshop in Novafeltria a couple of weeks ago, and the machines on the bench that day were quite something to see:
a 2-g Faema Marte; two 1-g Gaggias, a Classica and an Esportazione; and -- most wonderfully -- a La Marzocco Rondine. All beautifully restored; all hot and under test pressure (and making coffee).

Here are some photos to enjoy:

And then this is special:

The Rondine is a bit smaller than I expected, and stunning. It was discovered sometime this last year in Tuscany.

My hosts, Matteo and Enrico:
