The name, "Quick Speed" recalls an era where steam power was burgeoning and was becoming the driving force of transportation.

The Italian developers of espresso machines past faced the same dangers of high pressure steam in enclosed steel vessels. Quick Speed Espresso is our tribute to these Italian pioneers of espresso preparation coffee. We hold our cups high!
