So we started with the first project, designing the Fine and the Superfine filter disk for Aeropress and for other manual brewing methods.
Through the last 70 years know- how, experience and innovation have been the foundations of the increasing success of IMS. Our Main mission is still to innovate thanks to our experience and technical expertise of the filtration systems for coffee machines, such as the patented perforation system for conical filters.
New projects, more ideas from the past towards the future, IMS wants to be always on the side of those who love coffee.
