Ufesa, (which actually stands for Unión de Fabricantes de Electrodomésticos, SA) is one of the most important Spanish companies in the home appliance sector, and in particular in domestic coffee machines. With almost half a century of history – not in vain its origins date back to the Basque Country in 1963 – it currently belongs to the German group BSH and develops both the manufacture and distribution of all kinds of appliances: ironing centres, hoovers, beauty and personal care, etc.
As far as coffee machines are concerned, Ufesa works mainly in the segment of espresso machines (manual) and drip coffee machines. All of its products are aimed at the undemanding family consumer, and are mainly oriented towards being functional and affordable in terms of price. Ufesa coffee machines can generally be classified within a basic-medium range of their respective segments.
Buy Ufesa Coffee Machines: Prices and Models
As we always do with a brand, before summarising the qualities and differences of their coffee machines we are going to leave you a comparison table, so that you have them all at hand and can access their detailed analyses (or purchase links) whenever you wish.
Ufesa Drip Coffee Machines
Ufesa’s drip coffee makers are all low-cost, entry-level machines. Ufesa’s catalogue includes various models in this segment, but none is clearly distinguished from another beyond their launch dates (there are newer or older models) and slight variations in the size/capacity of their water tanks. You can find coffee makers for 6 cups or for 12 cups. We talk about all of them in greater depth in this article: Ufesa Drip coffee makers.
We also analyse in more detail the two most popular models of the firm: The CG7212 Selecta (which belongs to the Allegro series) and the CG7232 (which belongs to the Avantis series).
Both drip coffee makers have an external plastic housing, a water tank with a transparent level (visible from the outside), an Aroma Plus glass decanter, and a heating plate on the base to keep the coffee temperature longer. They differ, apart from belonging to different series, in that the CG7212 has a capacity of 0.65 litres (6 cups) and the CG7232 is larger (1.25 litres, 12 cups).
We have already said that all Ufesa drip coffee makers are quite economical and can be found within a range of 20-40 pounds, without exception.
Ufesa Express Coffee Machines
In the espresso coffee machine segment, Ufesa offers a range headed by the CE7141 and CE7150 models, representatives of the Duetto Creme line, which are very popular (always present at the top of the sales lists both online and in physical shops).
The Ufesa CE7150 is of more recent manufacture and presents a much more up-to-date and attractive design, although the water tank is somewhat larger in the CE7141 model (1.5 litres compared to 1 litre). Another difference is that the CE7150 includes three metal filters, and the CE7141 only two.
Both coffee machines have the same qualities and advantages: 15 bar pressure, ESE single-dose compatibility, steamer and removable water tank. Users who need an uncomplicated, mid-range espresso machine to prepare their espresso every day have a complete investment guarantee in either of these two options.
Another highlight is the Ufesa CK7355 Duo Supreme, perhaps the most popular combi coffee maker, which, in addition to the espresso service, allows us to enjoy filter coffee in the same machine. A 2×1 in the truest sense of the word.
Finally, we will talk about the Ufesa CE7115 model, or Ufesa Capricciosa, a hydro pressure coffee maker that allows us to prepare from 2 to 4 cups of coffee and includes a spraying tube to make cappuccinos or drinks with milk foam on the spot. Its small size makes it the perfect alternative for corners with little space or to take on a trip.
Ufesa CE7255 and CE7240
These are two much more modern machines, which come to renew the old catalogue of Ufesa manual espresso machines. They are being launched on the market at the same time, and they are a 20 bar pressure coffee maker, with a capacity of 1.6 litres and 850 watts of power. Of course, its colourful touch control panel is also worth mentioning.
The CE7240 is exactly the same, but with the analogue, non-touch control panel. Simpler, and slightly cheaper too.
