Henk Langkemper was born on November 20th, 1963, in Den Haag, Netherlands, where he still lives and works as an entrepreneur in the coffee machine sector. Henk's company ESW supplies machines, accessories, and coffee. But even more, Henk is spreading the history and culture of espresso coffee, and does so for over thirty years now.
His passion for vintage bar machines was manifested at the beginning of the nineties. When he went to work in Italy, he bought his first vintage espresso coffee machine which he found in the cellar of an old closed bar. His curiosity was then ignited, to see which other models had been produced over time. The hunt for new specimens, at flea markets and antique fairs throughout Europe and the world, started.
With interest, Henk increased his collection and it's meanwhile enriched with many different models. Some of which are extremely rare and valuable, such as the La Marzocco Rondine, of which only six are known to exist in the world. Or the Faema Nettune and Venus models, which are considered icons from the fifties, and of the history of espresso made in Italy.
For historical completeness, Henk Langkemper's collection is undoubtedly one of the top-five collections in the world, especially for lever system models.

Officina Maltoni - The Maltoni Workshop
My passion for the coffee machines I have been collecting and restoring for 30 years now, and which led me to found MUMAC, the very first museum for espresso machines in the world, has further evolved with Officina Maltoni. This specialised workshop has been created in order to restore vintage Italian espresso machines used in coffee bars, produced between 1900 and 1960. I am working with Matteo and Matteo on this new undertaking in order to satisfy the requests of all those demanding collectors searching for the finest quality.
For all the help during many years!
