Benefits of a La Marzocco Coffee Machine vs Other Brands

So why choose a La Marzocco machine? There are so many other brands who specialise in espresso machines. Firstly, you can’t beat their build quality. La Marzocco posses a real pedigree and these machines have been handmade and tested for decades. This image brings one of the powerful benefits. La Marzocco machines carry this impressive reputation and ultimately the impact this has on your customers’ perception of your coffee.

In our shop and in our training room we use the Linea Classic. We love its linear design and clean lines and it is really easy to get it custom painted!

The double boiler provides unparalleled temperature and pressure stability for continuous espresso brewing and continuous steam production. The PID controller allows you to easily control the espresso brewing temperature. This and small touches like the stainless steel portafilters and the precision baskets help to improve your cup quality and consistency.

The keypad with digital shot timer is really useful to monitor the extraction time. The tall legs also allow you to have extra room underneath the machine (you can fit take away cups and milk jugs.) All these technologies mentioned above allow real accuracy when brewing your coffee.

The machines also use stainless steel parts in place of the poorer quality copper parts chosen by other manufacturers. Steel holds heat much more effectively and is much stronger. So it is not only longer-lasting and at low risk of degradation or wear; but is also very easy to maintain. It holds onto nothing that is left in its system, keeping your espresso coffee taint-free consistently.

They also have unmatched local support, and they take customer service very seriously. They want the best for you and your experience of their machines and brand. So if anything goes wrong with your machine you know great support is in close by.
