In the market of coffee brands, there are a good number of classic firms, which have been with us all our lives. They were born in the shelter of industrial development and thanks to their perseverance and good work they have ended up making a place for themselves among us. Ibili coffee machines are one of these examples, and today we are going to get to know them in-depth.
Ibili is a company specialized in the manufacture and sale of kitchenware. Among the multitude of articles that compose its catalogue (more than 2000), we find, of course, the coffee machines. We will talk about them later.
The Ibili company was founded, like so many others, in the middle of the last century. This one, in particular, dates from 1942 and has its headquarters in the town of Bergara (Guipúzcoa, Spain).
Today, the group to which Ibili belongs has successfully expanded throughout the world, and has an important presence in fifty countries and four continents.
Buy Ibili coffee machines – Prices and models
As far as coffee machines are concerned, Ibili has decided to specialize (as is the case with almost all household companies, which do not work with electrical components) in the segment of Italian coffee machines or mochas.
Ibili’s Italian coffee machines are low-cost and long-lasting products. Their range is wide enough to satisfy any need (we refer to sizes, designs, materials of the coffee machine) and also includes a French press model, or piston coffee machine, which also fits the identity signs of the brand.
If you want to buy an Ibili coffee machine, these are currently the prices of all models and sizes, in force today:
Possibly the Ibili Essential coffee machine is the firm’s star model. It is one of the few Italian stainless steel coffee machines on the market. It is made of 18/10 stainless steel and has a very clean design, without edges, with modern lines that are very similar to other very successful mochas such as the Monix Aroma, the Bra Bali or the Bialetti Venus.
Here are the main features of this Ibili Essential:
- Italian coffee maker made of 18/10 stainless steel.
- Available in four sizes: for 2 cups, for 4, for 6 and 10 cups.
- The handle is not made of plastic or bakelite, but also of stainless steel.
- Silicone gasket.
- Safety valve to prevent overpressure.
- It is a coffee maker for induction, although it is also suitable for any other type of kitchen.
- 2-year manufacturer’s guarantee.
- It is dishwasher safe, although we always recommend doing it by hand and with care.
- Dimensions: 18 x 11 x 8 cm (the 6-cup Essential).
We find this model perfect for users of induction kitchens. Regardless of the size of mocha they need.
- For 10 cups
- Material: stainless steel
- Special for induction
Ibili Il Sapore
This Il Sapore is another Ibili induction coffee machine, although in this case with notably different characteristics from the previous Essential. The Ibili Il Sapore is not made of steel, but of aluminium. It can be used on induction plates because it has a diffusing bottom at the base that allows the correct transmission of heat.
It also differs radically in its appearance: in this model, we find much more classic lines in the mocha, with edges, which contrast with the original set of chosen colours (black on the body, greenish-grey for the grip elements). We emphasize that the upper knob is replaced by a tab near the handle, which allows us to lift it with the thumb of the same hand with which we hold the coffee machine. However, the pot is completely cylindrical and much wider at the base than at the neck.
This Ibili Il Sapore coffee machine is designed to produce medium-high quantities of coffee. It is available in three sizes: 6, 9 and 12 cups.
The dimensions of the 6-cup model (the smallest) are 19 x 10 x 17 cms. A maximum diameter of 14.5 cm is recommended on the induction plate for this coffee machine to work properly.
- For 3 cups
- Material: aluminium/plastic
- Suitable for electro, gas, vitro and induction heating sources
Ibili L’Aroma Verde
The Ibili L’Aroma Verde coffee machine has a similar appearance to the previous Il Sapore: black colour, green colour details (very bright in this case) in the grip elements, and classic lines. The upper body has an octagonal plan with edges, while the bowl, without being 100% cylindrical, does have more rounded corners.
However, there is an essential difference that we cannot overlook: this is an aluminium coffee machine that does not have a diffusing bottom, and is therefore not suitable for induction cooking.
The L’Aroma Verde coffee machine is available in 4 sizes: for 3, 6, 9 and 12 cups. It will delight younger users or those looking for a more casual-looking item to use -and decorate, why not- in their kitchen.
- For 6 cups
- Material: aluminium/plastic
- Suitable for electro, gas and vitro heating sources
Ibili Bahia coffee maker
We arrived at the Ibili Bahia, possibly the most basic model -also the most economical- of all the Italian Ibili coffee machines. It is a coffee machine made of cast aluminium, with a classic design and a polished diamond base.
The Ibili Bahia coffee machine can be found in the full range of common sizes for this type of article, from the largest to the individual single-person coffee machines: from the capacity of 1 cup, to the enormous 12-cup coffee machine, to the intermediate sizes of 3, 6 and 9 cups. Of course, the variety of options is not going to be an impediment when buying your Italian Ibili coffee machine.
If you don’t have an induction stove at home, and you want to spend a little money on a reliable mocha machine, the Ibili Bahia is an option that will fit you like a glove.
NOTE: This model is also available in a black version, named Ibili Bahía Black.
- Capacity: 1200 ml
- Material: aluminium/plastic
- An ideal item to make espresso
Ibili Plunger Coffee Machine
And finally, we leave behind the Italian coffee machines, and let’s look at the Ibili plunger coffee machine, an equally functional and affordable option for lovers of this type of preparation in the French press.
The Ibili French press has an original design, which is frankly attractive, thanks to a stainless steel casing and an original dome made of the same material. The glass, as usual, is made of borosilicate glass (a type of glass specially created to withstand sudden changes in temperature).
This model, which has the reference Ibili 621808, is distributed in three different sizes: the smallest has a capacity of 350 ml, the medium of 600 ml, and the largest of 800 ml. You better calculate the capacity in cups based on your tastes. There are those who prefer to take out the shorter coffees, and there are other users who need very long cups of 200 ml or more.
Like the rest of the Ibili brand coffee machines, this one carries a two-year manufacturer’s guarantee.
- Capacity: 350 ml
- Material: aluminium/glass
- Ideal for making coffee
Why buy an Ibili coffee maker?
The main reasons for buying an Ibili coffee machine are economical and reliable. There are many consumers, that is the fact that first of all prefer to look at coffee machines traditional brands. They are comfortable with them, and their prices are very attractive. And it is within these premises that Ibili comes in.
Ibili coffee machines are a good option whenever you are looking for an Italian espresso machine (because their range is somewhat reduced and they only have this type of machine) and they don’t take too much money from you.
As you can see, you have several models and sizes to choose from. We also appreciate the attention you have paid to users of induction kitchens, with such interesting induction coffee machines as the Ibili Il Sapore or the Essential in 18/10 stainless steel.
