Quality Espresso: The Company

In Spain, the brands manufactured by Quality Espresso are the benchmarks used by foodser vice professionals when considering commercial espresso and cappuccino coffee machines. Gaggia is probably the first brand to come to mind due to historic reasons. Gaggia arrived in Barcelona in 1952, four years after Achile Gaggia filed the patent for espresso coffee extraction in Italy. In 1956, a competitor arrived in Spain in the shape of Faema. The presence of these two brands in Barcelona meant that Spain participated from the start in the expansion of Mediterranean espresso culture.

The Gaggia and Faema entities in Spain eventually separated from their parent companies. The former had created the Visacrem brand in 1967 and began selling in export markets under this brand.

The latter created the Futurmat brand in 1978, and this rapidly expanded to become the number one selling brand in Spain.

One of the key contributions to espresso technology, the incorporation of vertical release electro-valves underneath the group heads, was developed in Barcelona, and is now used by all our competitors. In 2001, Quality Espresso purchased these two historic brands. With its headquarters in the Barcelona factory built by Faema in the 1960’s, Quality Espresso sells espresso equipment around the world under the brand names Futurmat, Gaggia, Visacrem, Italcrem and Mairali (the latter two brands having been created in 1957 and 1989 respectively).
