In The Press
The Linea Mini, like the name suggests, is a miniature version of the legendary Linea Classic—a machine that, over the last quarter century, has reached legendary status. Lineas are loved for their durability and classic looks on the cafe bar, and now, the heavy duty workhorse comes home.
La Marzocco has taken the Linea Classic commercial espresso machine and redesigned it for the home market.
The La Marzocco Linea Mini is a high performance machine by any standards. The PID controlled dual boilers and integrated brew group system with pre-infusion will bring superb consistency to your espresso routine. The large steam boiler produces powerful steam and provides quick recovery.
From the paddle-activated group head to the magnetically aligned drip tray, every detail has been thought through for simplicity and practicality.

The reservoir is the water tank an espresso machine pulls water from to fill its boilers. Having a reservoir means a machine can be more portable and work in homes where plumbing isn't an option.
Direct plumbing means you can hook a machine directly a water line and never have to worry about refilling your reservoir again. These machines also allow you to connect the drip tray to a drain so you don't have to make that tightrope walk to the sink.
Saturated Group Head
Saturated group heads are essentially surrounded by an extended section of the boiler. This means they warm up much faster than E61 group heads and hold a specified temperature more precisely.
These machines are built from the ground up with the home barista in mind. They span a wide range of needs but what they all have in common is a focus on creating a great user experience in a footprint that will fit on your counter, and look great there too.
Looking to pull some espresso at a wedding or serve cappuccinos to all your holiday party guests? Want to upgrade your office coffee setup? You’ll need a durable machine that can keep up with the crowds. Any of these espresso machines can bring the heat and look beautiful doing it.
Dedicated temperature controlled boilers for brewing and steaming means both functions can happen simultaneously, with the additional advantage of fine tunability. Sour and bitter espresso flavors can be minimized by raising or lowering brew temperature, resulting in a smoother shot. Adjusting the temperature of the steam boiler can increase or decrease the amount of steam power to suit different drink size milk drinks.
The rotary vane pump offers whisper quiet performance just like your favorite cafe’s machine. This super robust design also allows plumb-ability.
Digital Temperature Control
Closed loop temperature control is a very simple and reliable means of maintaining boiler temperature. Brew temperature and steam boiler temperature can be adjusted degree by degree.
Switchable Water Source
A switchable machine is not limited to either a water reservoir or plumbing. Large water reservoirs are always available for portability, but the plumbing line is also included and switching the water source between them is a breeze.
