General Espresso Equipment Corp. is the official distributor of ASTORIA
espresso and cappuccino coffee machines. It was founded in 1995 by its parent
company, C.M.A. Spa, one of the world's leaders in the manufacturing of
commercial espresso machines.
Though a young company, it already has a long experience with espresso
machines thanks to its owners, the Dal Tio family, whose experience in the
espresso machines business goes back more than 40 years.
The great Italian tradition of preparing and serving a perfect cup of espresso,
cappuccino or latte had to be undoubtedly explained and developed in the United
States in order to allow coffee shop operators to reach not only economic
success but also the satisfaction that comes from knowing an art: the art of
brewing a perfect espresso. General Espresso Equipment Corp. was born with the
intention of creating all over the States the relaxing and magic atmosphere of
the big European 'cafes'.
