Fracino Traditional Classic Coffee Machine

World class engineering and the latest technologies ensure that the iconic Fracino Classic espresso machine is as enduring as its name.

Designed and manufactured to the highest standards using only the finest materials, the very latest machining methods, and state of the art electronics, the Classic is built to stand the test of time. The commitment to excellence, skills and experience of Fracino engineers ensure that our coffee machines provide years of reliable coffee making. Fracino, the UK’s only manufacturer of espresso/cappuccino coffee machines, has extensively invested in research and development for the Classic range.

Fracino Classic machines are semi-automatic or electronically controlled and are available in 1, 2, or 3 group sizes. The groups on Fracino Classic semi-automatic machines are operated by illuminated rocker switches, allowing the operator to control the amount of coffee dispensed into the cup. Electronically controlled models have touch sensitive control pads with four accurately pre-set coffee measures and an override option.

All machines feature large capacity boilers, high powered elements and are hand built from the finest stainless steel, copper and brass. Fracino Classic machines also have hot water facilities for tea making and steam tubes and nozzles for foaming and heating milk.
