Atomic Coffee machines were manufactured in a variety of countries as far back as 1947. The early models are rare, and look very different to the later machines.
The basic shape hasn't changed much in the last 40 years but the design has been progressively improved. These days there are over 20 variations of the Atomic Coffee machine.
Atomic coffee machines are still manufactured in small quantities and vintage machines regularly come up for sale on eBay. Click here for a series of YouTube videos.
