DALLA CORTE AT SIGEP 2015 – Custom Workshops and a Blackboard Machine at “Factory-Booth”

One super mini espresso machine will be built every day at Dalla Corte’s booth. The new evo2 – Blackboard edition will be launched onto the Italian market.

Visitors will be offered many workshops and other educational occasions.

Dalla Corte’s booth at Sigep 2015 (pavilion A1-052) will provide visitors with interesting information and many occasions to grow, learn, be amazed and have fun. First, part of the booth will host a miniature factory where Dalla Corte’s artisans will be assembling actual espresso machines.

An evo2 espresso machine will also be available to visitors who want to learn the secrets of latte art techniques and take part in a friendly competition, the prize of which is a Latte Art course. That is precisely how Elisa Urdich started: she tried decorating some cappuccinos at Dalla Corte’s booth last year and she is now competing in the Latte Art Italian championship finals.

More precisely, an evo2 Blackboard edition will be in use – its body acting as an old-fashioned chalkboard on which people can communicate and have fun, or where the core personality of a coffee shop can be expressed.

Another workstation – equipped with the new dc pro Total Black edition – will be destined to education and training, that is to courses dedicated to anyone who wants to know coffee more closely and/or learn how to recognize coffee quality and its extraction sweet spot in order to provide their customers with the best product.

On Sunday 18 and Monday 19 January, visitors will also have the chance to watch Latte Art and Coffee in Good Spirits champions compete in the Italian finals working with a dc pro – official sponsor of the Championship finals. The winners will then compete in the World finals scheduled from 16 to 18 June in Gothenburg (Sweden).

Hand-made machines

Care for every detail is what most characterizes the design and manufacture of Dalla Corte’s machines: this is what the plant portion present at the booth intends to show. Artisans will assemble Dalla Corte’s super mini espresso machines – small, yet high-performing machines that are based on the same technology as the other, bigger machines.

This way, Dalla Corte will have the chance to confirm its transparency and visitors will be able to see the extremely simple structure and careful manufacture of these functional, long lasting and easy to maintain machines. The specimens manufactured at the exhibition will be put on sale immediately.

evo2 Blackboard edition – the creative machine

After its success at Hostelco 2014, evo2 espresso machine is now available in a Blackboard version, with an innovative, creative cover that catches the eye.

In 2001, Dalla Corte launched Evolution, its first independent boiler machine. Last year, the original model was accurately restyled and the new model has now become a new benchmark in the sector for its top quality standards, extreme reliability and intuitive usability.

The new evo2 model comes in an “all color” version, with a body that is completely coloured and specially treated to be used as a chalkboard, where the coffee shop’s logo, a creative picture or a personal message can be sketched.

It is available in 2-, 3- and 4-group versions and boasts an excellent thermal stability – precise down to one tenth of a Celsius degree – due to its independent brewing groups and steam boiler.

evo2 can also dialogue with dc one coffee grinder and adjust coffee grind and dose automatically, in case the pre-set parameters are not met, thus guaranteeing the production of constantly perfect espressos.

Just like in all Dalla Corte machines, the parts of evo2 that come into contact with water are made of a new material that does not release heavy substances (such as lead, nickel and chromium), in compliance with the new criteria established by the U.S. F.D.A. (Food and Drug Administration).

Safety is a must for Dalla Corte. That is why the new brass alloy parts are used not only in the machines destined to the U.S.A., but in all the devices manufactured at the plant in Baranzate (Milan, Italy). The Company’s compliance with these stricter rules and regulations (which are currently compulsory in the U.S.A. only) confirms its great care for the final consumer and its pioneer role in research.



Education is extremely relevant for Dalla Corte. Its booth will host courses held by SCAE (Specialty Coffee Association of Europe) trainers and by Latte Art and Coffee in Good Spirits international Champions.
