The FAEMA (Fabbrica Apparecchiature Elettro Meccaniche e Affini) was born in Milan in 1945 thanks to Carlo Ernesto Valente.

His name is especially linked to the machine for bar Faema E61, designed in 1961, which introduces two important innovations, the water pump to give the ideal pressure of 9 atmospheres and the infusion, which allows you to wet the ground coffee with hot water before starting the extraction, thus ensuring the best extraction of aromatics substances.

With regard to coffee machines for domestic use, Faema produced between 50s and 70s, three machine models lever, the Faemina, the Veloxtermo and the Faema Baby.

The Faemina, an imposing machine made of cast bronze and weighing about 11 kg, features a closed-boiler with piston actuated by a spring, with the possibility to make steam. The EMI in Milan made a clone named Emina.

The Faema Baby is a simple machine to "idrocompressione" with a piston actuated by two levers. The filter is designed to contain the coffee ground and the hot water (heated separately). Has no power supply. There are 3 versions: with terminals of the handles in spherical bakelite, with terminals in oval bakelite, with terminals in aluminum (brand adhesive or embossed).

The Veloxtermo is a wall machine. Although the first impression of the Veloxtermo is that it is a commercial machine (which it is - its group head was also available as an option on the Faema "President" & "Urania"), Faema also marketed the Veloxtermo for home use.
