Our world: coffee

Coffee is a serious matter. Because it is both a science and an art. Coffee is also a complex affair; it must be studied and understood and, when treated with the care it deserves, it bestows a simple pleasure to be savoured from a cup.

Turning an art into a profession demands commitment and dedication, and it is through teamwork, the combination of a range of skills and a healthy dose of passion that the Cimbali Group has helped write the story of coffee, and continues to do so.

Today, its professional machines anticipate market needs and the innovative functionality and design of its products provide baristas with the perfect instrument for expressing their talent.

Group Worldwide

After water, coffee is the world’s most popular beverage. In some countries it is an age-old tradition, in others almost a ritual. In many countries the coffee culture is a recent phenomenon, and is developing surprisingly fast.

Our goal is to interact with every one of these contexts, to embrace what is clearly an international panorama. The quality and experience of the Cimbali Group has led over time to the creation of a distribution network covering over 100 countries and involving 700 distributors, a market sector that accounts for more than 80% of our products.
Although the group today has a global framework, it remains Italian at heart, with a strong presence in the country. Indeed, the three production facilities/centres in Italy, in Binasco (Milan), Ghisalba (Bergamo) and Cappella Cantone (Cremona) manufacture on average 200 machines every day.
