Serving coffee since 1985

Since November 1985, La Rocca Exprés, S.A. designs, manufactures and distributes espresso coffee machines and some other machinery related to the hospitality industry. Our experience allow us to offer a product designed for the intensive use, easy maintenance for the technician and user comport.

In 1978 Antonio Villaseñor Gallardo started his career as technical advisor for the leading factory in Spain for the production of professional coffee machines. Many manufacturers are still using the unique product specifications Antonio invented! However, the ultimate dream of Antonio was to set up his own factory for the production of handmade top quality coffee machines. The beautiful view from his living place in San Roque to the Gibraltar ‘Rocca’ (Spanish for mountain) was the inspiration to name the factory ‘La Rocca Expres’. Since 1985 the La Rocca factory is the leading manufacturer of handmade coffee machines in Spain with an export to 29 countries all over the world!

In 1998, La Rocca moved to its new factory in Seville, five times larger than the previous one, where they are currently still working and creating new machines to add to their range of products.
