ESPRESSO COFFEE TIME...

The very first espresso coffee bar machines appeared in northern Italy
at the beginning of the '20th century,
in Milano, Biella and Brescia.

Vincenzo Ceccanti (97x134 cm)
Arti Grafiche Galileo,
Milano.
Those powerful machines built around 1914 were widely sold and they spreaded
to Europe, and then the world, the habit of drinking italian-syle espresso coffee
at the bar.


1907, Bar Mighela, Biella [Piedmont].
(Open at the beginning of the 1900 century, it closed in 1968).


The same Bar Mighela, in Biella (Piedmont), on a winter snowy eve, around 1940.
Open at the beginning of the 1900 century, it closed in 1968.
