Where traditional Italian style and American innovation meet
In 1960 Peter Cora started serving a tiny Italian coffee drink right here at his coffee bar in Chicago. People would come to know Peter Cora as the coffee connoisseur and he would advise them in their coffee inspired endeavors making it not uncommon to find his name behind equipment across the nation. The tradition lives on, three generations later.
From humble beginnings, we've expanded our client base to include cafés, caterers, restaurants, hospitality centers and home users. Today, Cora stocks extensive product lines for coffee, syrup, tea, chai, gelato, chocolate, smoothies, frappes, wines (licensed resellers only). We offer high quality, imported and domestic equipment: espresso machines, grinders, pasta cookers, panini grills, hot chocolate machines, frozen dessert cases, blenders, gelato and soft serve machines.
