At Faema Montreal, we are passionate about espresso and we believe that a great cup of coffee starts with the right equipment and, of course, quality espresso beans. 

To us, espresso is more than just a drink. It is a cultural tradition that unites families, grows friendships and helps couples fall in love. We have brought people together through our love of coffee since 1968. Over the years, we have grown our business to include top quality products that continue to help our customers indulge in the Italian dolce vita, such as gelato makers and, naturally, pasta making machines.

Our company was founded by our parents, Graziano and Luigina Angeli, two Italian immigrants with a deep passion for espresso coffee and a new-found love for their new country. Like all other immigrants of their time, they lived through their share of hardships, but they kept going, hand in hand, with a persistent hope of a better tomorrow. They were determined and committed to teach Canadians all they knew about their cherished espresso and all the traditions it represents. 

That is how our store opened in 1968 in Montreal’s Little Italy. Over the years, Little Italy might have changed, but our dedication to offering exceptional products to Canadian espresso lovers has remained intact.

Today, our second generation family business offers an impressive selection of top-end products imported from Italy and several collections of superior espresso blends.  So come visit us in person or browse through our online catalog. You will find everything you need to make your next perfect cup of coffee!
