Product description

To celebrate its jubilee, we have reproduced an edizione speciale Cremina in its original colours. The elegant colour marrone – Italian for chestnut brown – came to light based on material samples of the 1967 machine, still used and loved today. This design gently renders, its grace into the present day. The «Edizione Speciale» brings thogether the best of Olypmia Express: perfection, craftsmanship and elegant design in the spirit of the original.

Each machine from our limited edition run has a plaque on the reverse side saying «Edizione Speciale».

Concept

The perfect lever-operated machine – since 1967 virtually unchanged. Over 40 years of perfection. The Cremina is a classic lever-operated espresso machine; no ifs, no buts.

• Classical Swiss Design
• Only premium materials

A masterpiece of Swiss engineering
It works with the proven pre-infusion piston system: lifting the lever draws a small amount of water into the piston chamber and forces it into the pressed ground coffee, allowing it to expand. Lowering the lever forces the hot water through the ground coffee.
This tried and tested extraction procedure, coupled with the continually increasing experience of the individual Cremina owner, guarantees a perfect espresso, a composition of crema, smell and taste — a harmonious pleasure for the senses. Even your ears will be delighted: the only noise produced by your Cremina is the singing, when the boiler heats the water.

Built for a small eternity
Have a look at her inner qualities. You’ll find stainless steel, chrome and brass, and perfect manufacturing.
The brew group, consisting of group head and portafilter, as well as the steam wand and the steam nozzle, are made of brass—and are of course chromed and polished to a high gloss. This increases the longevity of the machine and facilitates the cleaning. The electric boiler, made of chrome steel is filled by opening the top and has a capacity of 3.8 pints—enough for 20 cups of classic espresso.
The high performance tubular heating element has a thermal protection against overheating of the boiler. In order to guarantee a perfect result and longevity, the high-tech gaskets used in the Cremina. The default pressure is adjusted to between 0.7 and 0.8 bars and the brewing temperature to 198 °F. The Cremina leaves it to the skill of the barista to find the required nine bar pressure onto the portafilter by lowering the lever at just the right time.
