Located in Binasco, on the outskirts of Milan, MUMAC, the museum of espresso coffee-making machines, recently opened its doors to the public. The museum is the brainchild of the Cimbali Group, an Italian company that has been producing coffee-making machines for more than one hundred years.
A wholly “Made-in- Italy” museum, featuring more than 200 of the most prestigious Italian brands on the market which, thanks to a series of interactive videos, traces the history of coffee-making in Italy, focusing, in particular, on technology, culture, style and design.
Many of the pieces showcased are extremely rare, several are the only prototypes of their kind in the world while others are known for their worldwide industrial success. All of them are, however, a part of the history of coffee-making, starting from the early 20th century to present-day times.
The skilfully restored museum, an example of the re-use of an old industrial area, is hosted at one of the factories of the Cimbali Group and extends over a surface area of about 1,700 sq.m. In addition to a display of coffee machines, the exhibition also features an historic archive of more than 15,000 carefully selected, catalogued documents which can be consulted by the public; a laboratory for sensorial tests and various spaces designed to host events and special projects.
