La Marzocco Linea Mini
La Marzocco needs no introduction. The build quality and reliability are synonymous with the brand. The Linea Mini design is taken from the commercial workhorse the La Marzocco Linea AV. The La Marzocco Linea AV famously known for its build quality, is once again echoed in the Linea Mini. It has extra thermocouples, check vales and safety features that puts this machine on another level of reliability compared to other rival domestic coffee machine manufacturers.
The taste from the integrated brew group always seems to deliver. It’s hard to quantify but when using the coffee machine in the Bella Barista Training academy with the various espresso blends we roast, you do consistently achieve that cafe quality espresso shot.
The steam is also one of the best we have experienced on a single group domestic 13amp socket. The 3 Litre surgical grade stainless steel steam boiler perfectly tuned to deliver a steam that makes micro-foam very consistently.
The Linea Mini has always been an extremely well build machine and The Bella Barista team have always valued the Linea Mini with the features mentioned above, however the additional Bluetooth upgrade that was introduced in 2020 gave the functionality the machine deserved.
Verdict: If you’re looking for a coffee machine that will consistently deliver the same shot whenever you walk up-to it, this is the answer and has to be a contender for the home coffee enthusiast.
