The Atomic espresso maker symbolizes a period in art and design. Somewhere between a traditional Italian mocha stove-top and espresso machine, its unique design produces greater pressure than most coffee makers, – in fact it"s as close as you can get to a stove-top espresso machine.
First designed in 1947 by the Italian Giordano Robbiati, the machines were produced in his Milanese workshop up to 1986 when, rumour has it his factory was destroyed by fire. But the Atomic rose Phoenix like from the ashes after an Australian entrepreneur began to manufacture a premium reproduction of the Atomic, since when it has become a best seller in New Zealand.
So, in keeping with the original design only the best materials are used to make the all-new Atomic coffee machines. Each machine is hand assembled and tested to ensure perfection. The quality and simplicity of the machine ensures trouble free operation for a lifetime. Replacement parts are compatible with vintage Atomic type Robbiati coffee machines and will be available from us soon.
Each Atomic machine is a truly wonderful coffee maker. You can easily produce 2 to 6 espresso sized "shots" and quickly froth and heat milk for delicious cappuccinos, etc… Ideal for the home and travel, Atomic coffee machines work perfectly on any stove-top, whether gas, electric or Aga, even on a barbecue or fire making it one of the most eco-friendly coffee making machine in the world!
The Atomic coffee maker, with its iconic and classic 1950"s design, is permanently displayed at the Science Museum, now that says something!
You can at last be one of the first in the UK to experience this new version of this classic design icon, a must for all coffee lovers and a great idea for a gift or wedding present.
The Atomic is a high pressure stove-top unit generating a respectable 4-6 bars of pressure to make up to 4 cups of coffee at a go, with the steaming power to texture the quality of milk required. As with all great coffee, freshness is essential. Use freshly roasted coffee your choice and grind on demand. The grind required will depend on your chosen coffee but a medium grade usually produces the best results. On average the Atomic will produce perfect coffee in about 5 minutes.
The Atomic coffee machine is very easy to operate – simply follow the following steps:
Step 1: Fill Coffee Jug (7) to 1.5 cm below rim with water and pour into the machine or fill direct from the tap via Black Valve (1). Screw Black Valve firmly into place and ensure Red Valve (2) is closed.
Step 2: Fill larger of the two Coffee Filters with medium ground fresh coffee and press down gently (do not pack coffee too tightly). Place the Filter in the Coffee Handle (5) and clamp the unit into the Machine Head (3).
Step 3: Place the Atomic Coffee Machine (with Coffee Jug (7) in place) over a moderate-to-high heat. After a few minutes, strong black coffee will start to pour into the jug.
Step 4: When coffee stops pouring into the jug (you will know by a low gurgling noise) you are ready to froth your milk. To froth keep the Atomic on a high heat, pour milk into a separate jug, place under Steam Nozzle (6), open the Red Valve (2) to froth the milk either smooth or bubbly, add to coffee and ENJOY!
