I owned an original Atomic machine and am very pleased with the La Sorrentina.
Benjamin N. Lewis
The result is an extremely dense full extraction brew with low volume and a lot of crema, even from less than dark roast beans.

Owning one of these and learning the history of the Atomic has been fascinating.

I have owned an original Thomas LaCara Atomic espresso machine since 1977 and still use it frequently because it makes a unique style of coffee. I roast my own beans in the oven at 415F to a bit after first crack in 20 minutes, which makes a lighter style roast. I grind them as fine as possible in a a shatter grinder and tamp the ground coffee VERY hard to make a very dense plug. This plug will expand when exposed to the hot water and allow a very slow extraction at relatively high pressure in my Atomic machine. My ugly LaCara pressure gauge is barely functional but I mostly brew at pressures well over 2.5bar. I have been doing this for the whole life of the machine (30 years+) and my safety valve is likely corroded shut as it never releases during brewing. The result is an extremely dense full extraction brew with low volume and a lot of crema, even from less than dark roast beans. Unlike espresso, this extraction has seen much higher heat as this style of machine uses steam heat to force the boiling water through the grounds and does not use a a high pressure water pump to force 180 degree water through the plug as is standard in commercial grade espresso machines. The result is a much fuller extraction that is not to everyone's tastes but has a very high caffeine content compared to espresso. The grounds re completely exhausted compared to a commercial espresso machines much faster and shorter contact time. Did I mention that this machine is different than any espresso machine? That is why a I prefer a much lighter roast bean for my Atomic.

Steamed milk made when the machine has hit the higher steam pressures I employ is very dense and has a great long lasting volume.

I have a coffee business so I have used a professional espresso machine for 7 years. This is really much more fun. I am still trying to get just the right mixture of water, grounds and cooking time but it is a joy to use this machine. I considered buying one of the original Atomic machines from Ebay but since this one is made from the original 1947 specifications, I thought I would start out with a fresh machine. Really has great frothing pressure if you follow the on-line forum instructions, it makes a great cappuccino. I have not yet mastered americanas because I can’t consistently make the espresso the same strength – yet. Great fun.

I owned an original Atomic machine and am very pleased with the La Sorrentina. It would be nice if they included a spare gasket.

I've been using my Atomic for a few months now and am so impressed with this machine. The La Sorrentina Atomic Coffee Maker is a the latest version of the Atomic Coffee Machine that has been around since the 1940's. The original design, by Giordano Robbiati has been produce worldwide, with the oldest model's now highly collectable. This version is produced by Ikon Exports in Australia, and is of the highest quality. It pulls great shots of espresso and is marvelous to look at when not in use. Owning one of these and learning the history of the Atomic has been fascinating. I highly recommend this machine.
