New York Magazine’s Grub Street mentioned one of the vintage Coca-Cola vending machines we have refurbished and re-branded into a Pure Black dispenser. It’s true that “the owners of Philadelphia-based coffee roaster La Colombe Torrefaction have a thing for vintage design that extends from the Citroën H Vans they park at charity events to the rare La Pavoni espresso machine they displayed at their Tribeca café earlier this year”
What they don’t know is that we have had two Pure Black machines in the two Philadelphia cafes looking quite similar and a giant red one in Chicago. Another vintage espresso machine by Gaggia has been in view at the Dilworth Plaza cafe across Philadelphia’s majestic City Hall and we have a few more here in the head quarters.
