Olympia Express Moca anthracite

in 2014, the functionality, design and grinder were completely revised. Typical Swiss design and Swiss Made quality.The Moca grinds the coffee fresh into the portafilter. The newly designed grinder is reliable, precise and made of high-quality materials with a lot of handwork, only first-class stainless steel, aluminium and real glass. Typical Swiss design and Swiss Made quality.Luigi Bresaola developed his first espresso machine for the catering trade in Switzerland as early as 1930. He was a tinkerer and inventor and one of the pioneers of his time. One who did not rest until there was nothing left to improve on the machines he had designed and built. One who revered the fine art of espresso preparation.In the 1960s, his son Luigi took over the business founded in Chiasso in 1928. In the meantime, the small family business Olympia Express had also added espresso machines for private households to its range. With great success. The quality and reliability of the machines, combined with their compact design, ensured ever greater demand. From London to San Francisco, from Chile to Singapore. At times, up to a hundred workers were employed in the workshop.Despite some turbulences in the eighties and nineties, the company remained true to its philosophy and today concentrates again on the production of high-quality espresso machines. As a small and fine manufactory that builds outstanding machines for connoisseurs.Cremina: Hand-lever espresso machine without ifs and buts.The Cremina is the classic hand-lever espresso machine without ifs and buts. It works with the tried-and-tested pre-infusion piston system: when the lever arm is pulled up, a small amount of water is drawn from the boiler into the piston chamber and flows into the pressed espresso powder to pre-swell it. When the lever is pressed down manually, the hot water is forced through the espresso powder. This tried and tested extraction process, together with the growing experience of the Cremina owner, of course, guarantees that perfect espresso in which crema, aroma and taste create a harmonious pleasure for the eye, nose and palate. At the same time, the only sound that can be heard from the Cremina is the singing as the boiler heats up.The brewing group, consisting of piston and portafilter, is made of brass and of course chrome-plated and highly polished. The same goes for the extra-long steam pipe and steam nozzle, which increases the longevity and makes cleaning easier. The electrically operated chrome steel boiler, which can be filled from the top, has a capacity of 1.8 litres and is sufficient for 20 cups of classic espresso. The high-performance tubular heating element made of stainless steel has a thermal fuse to protect against overheating. The high-tech Teflon and Gore-Tex seals also ensure perfection and durability. The boiler pressure is already set at the factory to 0.7 to 0.8 bar and a brewing temperature of 92°C in the brew head. With the Cremina, it is up to the barista's skill to achieve the pressure of nine bars on the portafilter required for a perfect espresso by depressing the hand lever.The spirit of the founder: no compromise.For over 80 years, the top priority has been perfection in terms of materials and workmanship. At Olympia Express, every detail, no matter how small, is rethought and optimised over and over again. For example, Olympia Express is the first manufacturer of espresso machines to use exclusively chrome steel tanks since the early 1990s. They may be more expensive, but they are also of higher quality. And since there are no chrome steel components on the market that meet the strict requirements of the engineers, they are designed and manufactured in the in-house workshop. In this way, the entire team tries to produce the best espresso machines ever, day after day, with careful manual work and a great love of detail.Of course, the same applies to the design: "form follows function". With this classic design principle, the designs of Olympia Express are a prime example of Swiss design.What everyone is talking about today under the catchword "sustainable technology", Olympia Express has been living unchanged for decades. Our machines are durable, repairable and therefore environmentally friendly. That is why machines that are more than 40 years old are still in use today and highly sought after as "old-timers" among enthusiasts.Admittedly, you could produce more machines if you weren't so in love with quality and precision. But espresso drinking is also a piece of culture. Olympia Express has cultivated this culture for generations. And so the love of Italian espresso and old Swiss craft tradition merge to create a product that is intended to give its owner lasting pleasure.Not a seasonal product. No expiry date.With the Maximatic, too, every single detail is an orchestration of the Olympia Express philosophy. The know-how and experience of 80 years of espresso machine manufacturing goes into every one of our machines. That is why the Maximatic is so compact, so reliable and the noise level so low. Swiss made, after all.Unlike the Cremina, the Maximatic has two water tanks: a fresh water tank and a boiler. The tank holds 1.5 litres and can be refilled during operation. The water from this tank is fed through a closed pipe system through the boiler. It is heated to over 100 °C to reach the ideal brewing temperature of 92 °C in the brewing head for espresso preparation. The steam for frothing the milk is generated in the boiler (capacity 1 litre). As with the Cremina, the water tank and boiler are made of high-quality chrome steel. The front panel is also made of highly polished stainless steel, and the frame and panelling are painted in a high-quality and particularly resistant powder coating.The surface of the Maximatic can be used to preheat the cups, the drip tray and drip grid are removable and therefore easy to keep clean. And then there is the illuminated extraction knob, with the Olympia Express logo, the water level indicator, the pressure gauge, the extra-long steam pipe, the thermal overload protection for the heating element, the mechanical safety valve for the boiler, the high-tech seals made of Teflon and Gore-Tex and, and, and. This exceptionally high manufacturing quality can only be achieved because our engineers and designers' primary goal remains to produce the perfect espresso machine.A decision for life.Olympia Express is a Swiss manufacturer of exclusive espresso machines. With an 80-year tradition of development and craftsmanship, the small but fine manufactory is one of the pioneers in the premium espresso machine market. The engineers and mechanics still live the values of the founder today and lovingly attend to every detail, no matter how small, with dedication and Swiss precision. The use of the highest quality materials and specially developed components results in particularly compact machines and grinders with a noble design, unique quality and outstanding durability. Hand made and Swiss made. The prerequisite for the highest espresso enjoyment.

FRESH COFFEE FOR MAXIMUM AROMA

Freshness is a big issue in the food industry. Fresh vegetables from the market, fresh eggs straight from the farm, fresh coffee from the roastery or the coffee centre. But what does "freshness" mean and how does coffee stay fresh the longest?

THE MOST IMPORTANT TIPS AT A GLANCE

  • Enemies of coffee: air, humidity, heat, light and time
  • Optimal period of enjoyment
    • Espresso: 2 weeks to 3 months from roasting date
    • Filter: 1 week to 2 months from roasting date
  • If no roasting date is known: expiry date minus 9 months

  • Store in a dry, dark and cool place; best in the original packaging
  • Grind beans fresh
  • Keep coffee machine and grinder clean
