The Faema Urania for a stellar coffee

The Faema Urania was born in the 1950s in a family of coffee machines made by Fabbrica Apparecchiature Elettro Meccaniche e Affini, founded in Milan by Carlo Ernesto Valente in 1945.

Each “sibling” in the line was named after a star or planet – such as Saturn, Mars, or Venus – and helped launch a new era of lever machines.

The Faema Urania actually looked like it was out of a spaceship: after all, only an object with sky-high design and functionality could be named after the Muse of astronomy and geometry
