High quality of the materials and components
The Dream coffee machine is made in aluminium. Besides from the 12 colours we present (aluminium painted with technological quality paints, used in Formula 1 and professional navigation) and from the special print (model La Vaca), the star finish is polished aluminium. This finish is achieved by polishing the pieces by hand, one by one. The possible disuniformities of the surface are due to the handcrafted and laborious process that we wish to maintain for its delicacy and that provides each piece with a differential characteristic. The Dream model (ground/versatile) includes the Tam-tamper. Aluminium professional Tamper ( 57mm) designed by Marc Aranyó
