      A Passion as Strong as Coffee – Dalla Corte Family

      In 1947, Bruno Dalla Corte is an enthusiastic young man who starts working as a technician at the Cimbali espresso machine Company. In the 50's, Bruno gains La Faema group owner's trust and works on the creation of the E61 espresso machine. In the 60's, Bruno manages a series of autonomous technical support centres, but his creative mind keeps working tirelessly and later devises the innovative steam circulation technology – that is when La Spaziale espresso machine is produced at ABA factories in Bologna. Bruno and his son Paolo will work there together for many years.

      The Original Multi-Boiler Technology

      A new, thrilling adventure starts in 2001! Paolo, his father Bruno and his sister Elsa found a new espresso coffee machine manufacture – Dalla Corte. The strong presence of the family can be seen in the Company's logo – Bruno's elegant signature becomes an integral part of the Company's brand.
      Revolutionising and evolving – this is why we want to stand out from the crowd. Evolution is the only espresso machine in the world using the original multi-boiler technology. And we invented it.

      Ethics and commitment for a better world

      We support the Orang Utan Coffee Project in Sumatra to make farmers better understand coffee, providing them with tools to start sustainable, environmentally friendly farming.

      We believe in giving people a second possibility. With the Second Chance Project, we cooperate with the Penitentiary of Bollate (Milan) to give a second life to our machines.
      We are the first manufacturers in the world to produce espresso machines with "lead free" materials: the surfaces in contact with water do not release harmful substances, nor jeopardize the quality of the final product.
