The machine is not mine but I was directly involved in the restoration.

Made by Faema, one of the most respected coffee machine manufacturers  ever, it is an unusual design which just works. It will probably still be doing so when your grandchildren are old enough to appreciate beautiful coffee.


In the words of the owner.Boema 60’s 2 group lever coffee machine

A vintage Faemina lever Espresso Machine in very good to excellent condition and up until recently was in every day use after a comprehensive rebuild.

240 volt.

This is not a light weight machine, weighing about 10kg and measuring 43cm high to the top of the lid and 47cm to the top of the lever. The footprint, however, is nice and small at 30 x 18 cm which should make it very easy to fit in any kitchen.

The rebuild included a full strip down, new switches, partial rewiring, new elements and all new seals and gaskets and was set to correct operational pressure on completion of rebuild.

It is a vintage, fully functioning and beautiful home espresso machine that has a nice semi commercial weighted feel to pulling shots and steams smooth and creamy micro foam for milk drinks.

Although the machine is close to 60 years old there is less than normal wear and blemishes to the chrome, paint and base.

Includes a single and double basket and the original knock box that is a little broken.
