The FAEMA E61 espresso machine at Liberty Market turns 49 years old on Tuesday, July 22nd. And, to celebrate, they’ll be giving away classic espresso drinks (espresso, macchiato, and cappuccinos, for drinking in ceramic mugs) all day long!

If you’ve never been to Liberty Market, you should check out this photo-post I published a couple of years ago after one of my visits. They have just absolutely fantastic food, and a dedicated espresso bar inside the restaurant.

Joe Johnston emailed Arizona Coffee with the following description of their espresso machine, which is, to my knowledge, the only one used commercially in Arizona. Joe writes: “The showpiece of the eponymous espresso bar is our FAEMA E61 espresso machine, a retro-futuristic chrome plated beauty built in Milan, Italy on July 22, 1965. The E61 is perhaps the most famous espresso machine ever built, introducing several technical innovations that revolutionized the making of quality espresso. Our machine was used in Milan for decades then refurbished by Mr. Espresso of Oakland, CA and installed at Liberty Market five years ago.”

Has it only been five years? Congratulations to Liberty Market!
