The Torino – Overview

The Torino from Sanremo is an all round commercial coffee machine that benefits from a perfect blend of brains and beauty. Often overlooked in the high capacity coffee machine market for the popular Verona and Roma models, the Torino provides an incredible alternative option for those looking for a machine that inhibits a traditional Italian design.


Core Features

Packed with incredible standard features, the Torino includes a large 12 litre boiler, fast steam wand, built-in rotary pump, pre-mechanical infusion and a height adjustable system making it the perfect machine for busy environments.

Design Highlights

Benefitting from its stylish retro looks, the Torino provides an incredible standout feature for your countertop. Based on the design of a traditional radio, the machine incorporates prominent dials and time-honoured temperature & pressure gauges that elude the quality and glamour witnessed in classical sports cars.

Size & Applications

Available in 2 and 3 group options, the Torino is aimed at cafe’s and coffee shops with medium to above average customer demand. Opt for the 3 group and you’ll benefit from a generous 19 litre boiler capacity that ensures periods of high demand do not compromise your ability to produce continual delicious coffee.

Power Requirements

The Torino runs off a 32 amp socket.

USP (Unique Selling Point)

The Torino’s ability to combine modern technology with sophisticated design from a bygone era does not go unnoticed, making it an essential choice for retro cafes.

Here’s what Creative Breads say about their machine:

“Very delighted with our Torino, a fantastic looking machine that delivers on all accounts. A user friendly machine that allows us to consistently produce great tasting coffee. We would happily recommend the Torino and the services of Casa Espresso to any business looking to serve great coffee.”


Unlike premium Roma and Verona models, Torino does not incorporate the advanced Temperature Control System (TCS) designed to offer baristas a more consistent brewing temperature. However, even without this you can still count on the Torino to work with your baristas and produce high quality espresso drinks time after time.
