  • Faema Nordica?

    Hello,

    does anybody know anything about this Faema machine? In Mumac Espresso museums website there is a similar one listed Faema 'Nordica' from 1960. I've been trying to google this for hours now but can't seem to find anything except that one picture. So I really don't know anything about it, it doesn't even have the same 'Nordica' patches as that one. What is this thing..??

    Here is a response I got from Mumac:

    "Model Nordica - Faema, Milan, 1960

    2 coffee reserve groups - 1 delivery group - Preserved model

    Machine featuring two boilers, one of which dedicated to the two reserve groups specifically designed for hotel needs, each containing a litre of coffee ready to be delivered directly into the cup; and the other one dedicated to the central group for the preparation of the traditional espresso coffee. The name is a homage to Nordic countries, which are great filter coffee consumers."

      Looks like the "reserve groups" are some kind of drip filter arrangement, when I read the description I was initially thinking one of those horrible (and scary) "hotel groups"

          A hotel group extracts under pressure, think a PF which is more like 150mm(? never seen one in the flesh, there are pictures around somewhere on here I think) diameter and 8 spouts instead of 58mm with 2...

          That much suface area under 9-bar of pressure is extremely scary because the stresses are significantly higher, though it's been suggested that they probably don't operate at a full 9-bar due to this problem, they're not particularly common beasts.

          58mm = 26.42cm^2 = ~242kg of force (total)
          150mm = 176.7cm^2 = ~1621kg of force (total)
