The San Ignacio brand of coffee machines goes far beyond the marketing of coffee machines. Its household items, especially pans and cookware, are usually more popular. Everyone perceives them as “good“. And it shows.
For example, they have recently introduced a fastening system on their pans that extends the life of these items and prevents the handles from loosening over time.
The San Ignacio brand coffee makers follow the same line and satisfy the most demanding espresso consumer. There are numerous models of the medium-high range, built-in stainless steel, or various induction coffee machines.
We will talk about them in detail later on.
The San Ignacio firm (San Ignacio Kitchenware SL) was founded in Oñate España (Guipúzcoa) in 1944, although it has its headquarters in the town of Vitoria.
In 2013, it reached a successful agreement with the Mexican industrial group La Vasconia to market and distribute its kitchen articles on the American continent.
This is a real reference point, which we can only honour in our pages with a detailed review of its coffee-related products. Let’s go there!
Buy San Ignacio coffee machines – Prices
As we have already pointed out, San Ignacio only markets Italian coffee machines for the time being. It has a range of high-quality mochas, not at all simple, which stand out for the cleanliness of their design and the sobriety of their lines (except the Soft Touch model, which we will talk about later).
Below, you have the complete list of San Ignacio coffee machines, with different sizes and their prices 100% updated. Search well, because you never know when you can get a good offer!
San Ignacio Italian coffee machines
Let’s go through them all, but you’ll notice right away that most of the range is Italian induction coffee machines. San Ignacio is committed to this model, knowing that the users of this type of plate are only growing, and also because, in some way, it has to reinforce its identity features and its avant-garde character.
It would not be surprising if a firm of such prestige in the frying-pan or kitchenware sector were to put on the market a line of cheap and simple coffee machines to “get out of the way“.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
San Ignacio Florence
We start with the San Ignacio Florencia model. It is an Italian coffee machine made of aluminium with a matt finish in a colourful black, characterising and distinguishing it from the rest.
It has a very interesting modern line because, even though the upper body retains the traditional octagonal shape of the classic mocha, the pot is completely smooth and rounded, with no edges.
The San Ignacio Florencia coffee maker is ideal for users who need a large Moka: it is available in size for 6 or 12 cups of coffee.
San Ignacio Milan
As you can see, San Ignacio wants to pay tribute to various Italian capitals in its range of coffee machines. The San Ignacio Milan is a medium-large induction coffee machine (for 4, 6 or 10 cups), with a modern design and without edges.
The knob and the handle are made of bakelite and, therefore, heat-resistant. The rest of the coffee machine is made of 18/10 stainless steel, except for the silicone gasket, of course.
San Ignacio Bolonia
The San Ignacio Bolonia coffee maker represents the most affordable element within the San Ignacio induction coffee machines. It is made of aluminium and therefore cheaper than the Milan model, but it has a diffusing bottom at the base that allows it to be used with induction plates.
It differs from the previous ones because this Bolonia coffee maker is faithful to the design and lines of the old Italian coffee makers. The gasket is silicone, and the gripping elements -knob and handle- are black. The latter, by the way, has an excessively closed shape which is a little uncomfortable in the smaller versions.
The San Ignacio Bolonia also offers a greater variety of sizes than the previous ones: from 3 to 12 cups. The dimensions (in the 9-cup model) are 21 x 10 x 18 cm to serve as a reference.
San Ignacio Soft Touch Splash
The San Ignacio Soft Touch range of coffee makers (a line comprising many other items, not just mochas) is made of aluminium and has soft grips as their hallmark.
“Soft Touch” is an English term that refers to the fact that the gripping elements (top knob and handle) are made of polypropylene and have a “Soft Touch” coating that makes them immune to heating. Therefore, they protect from burns in a much more effective way.
Within this range, we find the Soft Touch Splash coffee makers, which are distinguished by the fact that they retain the original colour of the aluminium on the body and incorporate a very vivid colour tone in the handles. They are available in three colours: green, red and blue, and four sizes: for 3, 6, 9 or up to 12 cups.
Although with the same features, two other possibilities, much more soberer are the Soft Touch Darkblack (in black) or the San Ignacio Soft Touch ChocBlack (one body white and the other black).
San Ignacio Classic
And we end up with the more classic San Ignacio coffee maker, as its name suggests. The San Ignacio Classic is made of aluminium, is not suitable for induction cooking, and is available in sizes of 3, 6, 9 and up to 12 cups of coffee.
If you are looking for a very cheap Italian coffee maker, this San Ignacio Classic is an excellent choice. We recommend it for all users who do not have an induction cooker and, therefore, can save a few pounds compared to the Bolonia model.
Is it worth buying a San Ignacio coffee machine?
Without a doubt. A San Ignacio coffee machine is characterised by durability, care for details and the search for constant improvement.
It is true that, on average, they can be slightly more expensive than similar coffee machines of other brands, but whoever buys a San Ignacio item normally values what he is going to take home and knows that he will take advantage of it and amortise it.
