One of La Marzocco’s most popular machines, the Linea has earned its reputation as a global leader in retail specialty coffee. As the benchmark for independent coffee bars, this machine is capable of producing high-quality espresso consistently, even in the busiest shops. Thanks to its durability, the Linea can be built to accommodate small or large coffee houses and can be operated by baristas of all levels.
The La Marzocco Linea is easy to use, and requires limited experience to operate. Basic users can operate the brewing buttons, however, if you choose to customize the liquid volumes for signature drinks, it will require reading the manual and a more advanced knowledge of espresso brewing. For more in-depth training on brewing, steaming and frothing, users can be directed to the following articles for detailed descriptions of the brewing and frothing processes, but hands-on training is a must for the best results.
The Linea features 2 ball-jointed, omni-directional steam wands to provide instant steam from the dedicated boiler. Dual stainless steel frothers make simultaneous steaming and frothing fast and easy, and since each wand is situated on each end of the machine, they can be used without getting in the way of the brew groups.
The Linea comes with 5 buttons above each brew group that allow you to create espresso of consistent quality every time. 4 buttons control different preset coffee volumes: 1 short coffee, 1 tall coffee, 2 shot coffees, 2 tall coffees, while the last switch is an on/off switch for continuous brewing. The Linea automatic also gives you the option to customize the exact liquid volume each button dispenses. To change this, refer to the manual included with the machine.
The La Marzocco Linea provides superior temperature stability with the heavy-duty, stainless steel brew heads connected directly to the boiler. This unique design allows water to flow openly and consistently between the boiler and each of the Linea’s brew groups.
To make maintenance fast and efficient, La Marzocco espresso machines feature back-up devices that make it possible to test and service your machine without interrupting your brewing routine.
Like all of our La Marzocco espresso machines, the Linea features an oversized cup warmer. Made of heavy-duty stainless steel, the cup warmer is large enough to preheat all of your espresso, cappuccino and latte cups so they're always ready for brewing.
The Linea features a sight glass for monitoring the level of water in the steam boiler as you froth.
The Linea can be customized to meet the needs of your electrical environment. Choose from 200v (1 or 3 phase), 220v (1 or 3 phase), or 380v (3 phase) depending on your requirements. You can also choose between standard wattage and high wattage heating elements to customize your machine's capabilities.
For heavy-duty espresso machines like the Linea, you should be sure to keep a few extra parts on hand, as they tend to wear under constant use. Parts such as filter baskets, shower screens and group gaskets should be maintained and replaced when necessary.
This La Marzocco espresso machine will require a professional installation, which we can arrange for you at the time of purchase. Prior to installation, you will need to submit the following electrical and plumbing requirements (both found in the Installation Guidelines Diagram) to a general contractor, electrician, or plumber as well as your code enforcement officer to ensure the compliance of your facility with the needs of this espresso coffee maker. You may also want to go over this information with your electrician or contractor prior to purchase, as you will need to select your voltage and wattage preferences at the time of purchase.
If you would like to know a little about the many types of espresso machines we sell, this would be a good video to get you started. This video covers the machines we sell and based on your lifestyle, what you like to drink, and ease of use. It will give you an overview of different espresso machines and help you determine which one best suits to your needs.
I would watch the video and focus on a particular kind of machine—prosumer, semi-automatic, and super-automatic to decide which kind is ideal for you. Then, you can go and look at individual models to get a better idea of exactly what you want. Of course, if you narrow it down to a few espresso machines and are still undecided, give us a call and we would be glad to help!
