Brief

The S-Lite espresso machine that we designed with the LaCimbali team was created to be the brand’s first product dedicated to the entry-level segment of the professional market. This choice prompted us to analyze, apply and optimize particularly refined technical and stylistic solutions. In this way we were able to meet the high performance expectations that distinguish the brand and at the same time respect the challenging cost target.

Solution

S-Lite was designed for those who need a product with small dimensions, but who do not accept compromises in coffee quality. Its compactness is made possible by the integrated hopper, which fits perfectly into the machine body and allows it to squeeze into any space: offices, lobbies, waiting rooms, small accommodations. S-Lite is the smallest espresso machine made by La Cimbali, but it still reflects its essence, with a recognizable design and an expression of the visual DNA we have built over the years through the design of our entire range of superautomatics.
