Faema Canada held a training seminar last week for their commercial clients and potential new ones. In collaboration with Caffé Trucillo, the seminar provided proper brewing techniques and a chance to learn some fancy latte art.

Faema’s state of the art showroom headquarters, located at the corner of Dupont and Christie in downtown Toronto, was originally built as the former Ford Motor Company of Canada factory. It too was a showroom for great machines of the time. Now it features some of the greatest espresso machines of our time, many of which can be viewed and sampled with some exclusively imported beans and ground coffees.

The family company was founded over fifty years ago by Lorenzo Michele (Mike) Di Donato when he immigrated to Toronto. His idea was to introduce the real Italian food and espresso culture here in Canada. Soon after importing his first machine, great espresso was available in restaurants and homes across the country.

The Faema facility also includes the Pizza Studio Canada which provides services for restaurant planning, consulting, training and special events. This is where Pasquale Ponticiello will provide you with all that it takes to making a real Neapolitan pizza.
