At the top we find the input for the Nespresso cups, at the left side we can see a water tank with a small plexi in to see the water level and at the right side we can chose wether we want a small coffee or a larger one.

The espresso machine was invented in 1901 by a man called Lugia Bezzer. He would like his employees to have a shorter coffee break so he created a device to make coffee faster. This deviced was supposed to save time by using pressure to brew a concentrated shot of coffee. What they called the machine originally was the “Fast Coffee Machine”. Later in the years, the patent of the “Fast Coffee Machine” was sold to Desidero Pavoni in 1905. What he did, is use a piston pump to push water trough a tube for an even finer espresso product.
