Pere Cunill was an entrepreneur advanced for his time. After various forays into different sectors, at the beginning of 1957, he created TALLERES CUNILL, a company dedicated to the manufacture of parts for the Gaggia brand of coffee machines and grinders.
In 1957 Molibar, Bambi and Dosibar coffee grinders saw the light, three spectacular historical examples, hand moulded, cast in sand and equipped with glass dosers and hoppers. With Gaggia, Talleres Cunill produced 200 grinders per month.
At the height of the seventies, Pere Cunill began to manufacture his own coffee grinders. Tauro was the first of a series which would revolutionise the sector. During that decade and the following, their production reached more than 1.200 grinders per month.
His passion to exceed himself day after day and his fascination for new technologies, led Pere Cunill to develop the first stainless sheet chassis, less heavy and 30% cheaper. He was also a pioneer in manufacturing plastic injection parts (hoppers, star pieces, dosers...) and grinders with chrome-plated feet. Since 1983 and until the present day, Cunill is the only national company that manufactures its own blades. Pere Cunill designed the first self-ventilated single phase motor, revolutionising the world of coffee.
At the end of the 1990s, he presented the first professional grinder with an integral ABS body called Space, the only one in the world with these features. Pere Cunill still had time to develop the first two-piece doser in ABS and started drawing the first studies for the silent grinders.
Pere Cunill left us in 1997, but the company he founded has continued believing in and promoting his values with energy day after day.
