This little machine always had a lot to live up to. The Mini Linea is named after the iconic, original double-boiler workhorse. The most sold La Marzocco machine in LM history I believe. There is a comforting simplicity in brewing on a Linea Mini. As long as you have water in your tank (plumbing-in is possible of course) this will consistently brew as few or as many cups of coffee as you need, all from a 13 Amp plug. The steam pressure is just what you would expect of a La Marzocco: reassuringly dry and plenty of it.
Did I mention that these are FUN to brew on? You take coffee as seriously as you like with the mini. There is just a high quality feel to the machine, as you would expect from La Marzocco.
This is proof that you don’t need pre-set measures in espresso brewing. This is as much about visual measuring, seeing what your coffee is doing and how it is extracting and of course, the best bit, tasting. We have 7 different espresso machines in our showroom and some days it is a Mini Linea day. Strip down all of the gizmo’s and brew with eyes and ears, with scales and timers on stand-bye.
It is no surprise that you see La Marzocco Linea Minis at trade shows, used by the very hippest and those who don’t need to be. They are a “synch” to set up, with none of the hassles of a flow-jet.
Here is some official specification for you:
Inspired by the Linea Classic, the Linea Mini comes with dual boilers and an integrated brew group that allows the machine to achieve the temperature stability and energy efficiency of the saturated brew group in a reduced footprint. The Linea Mini is handmade with the same components used in our commercial machines to ensure the same durability that the Linea Classic has become famous for.
In the box, you get various VST baskets, two portafilter handles a milk jug, a La Marzocco tamper, some head cleaning powder, and some basic instructions.
