Our espresso machine is a Victoria Arduino Black Eagle. When we switched from the La Marzocco Strada EP last April, we talked about why we love the Black Eagle. This Championship level machine has been a lot of fun to work with and shows off the expertise of Victoria Arduino’s long history with espresso.
Founded by Pier Teresio Arduino in 1905, Victoria Arduino exists to provide espresso machines with heavily researched technologies that lead to creating the “ultimate espresso coffee machine.”
“La Victoria,” Ardunio’s first machine and the company’s namesake, was named after the victory of his first machine, the summation of all of the efforts to develop and build his machine. Over the years, Arduino developed several different machines improving design and technology as innovations in power and mechanics occurred. The desire to constantly improve and innovate in both performance and design leads to Victoria Arduino’s current offerings of 9 different machines for the home, workplace, or coffee shop.
With modern machines like the White Eagle, Black Eagle, and Theresia; or with heritage models that harken back to the vertical design of early espresso machines like the Venus, Victoria Arduino’s machines are beautiful. Lucky for us (and you), they also make outstanding espresso.
