The recently opened Museum of coffee machines – MUMAC – in Milan, Italy, houses the Maltoni Collection, the largest espresso machine exhibit in the world, which has on display all the Italian-made espresso machine models produced from 1900 to 2000. Located in a newly restored space within the headquarters of Gruppo Cimbali, the exhibition path is laid out as a journey through different eras. Each room corresponds to a specific time period with photos, advertising billboards, and other displays setting the equipment into historical context.
The Johann Jacobs Museum overlooking Lake Zürich houses one of the most important collections on the cultural history of coffee. The museum has been closed for renovation the last several years but is slated to reopen in July 2013. Address: Johann Jacobs Museum, Seefeldquai 17, 8034 Zürich. www.johann-jacobs-museum.ch/
