Quality and consistent brewing make La Marzocco’s Linea one of the most popular espresso machines on the market today. With the combination of durable components and a sleek stainless steel design, the Linea is an attractive addition to any business. The Linea also has saturated brew groups and a stainless steel cup warmer to keep the temperature of your espresso consistent from start to finish.
The Linea semi-automatic features standard brewing, steaming and hot water controls, so moderately experienced baristas can brew and steam without extensive machine training. There is a separate control button for each brew group and a separate knob to control each omni-directional steam wand, making brewing and steaming a relatively simple process. However, to learn the proper techniques for 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.
La Marzocco designed the Linea’s 2 ball-jointed, omni-directional steam wands to ensure your employees won’t fight for space. The dual stainless steel wands are located on either end of the machine, meaning the brew groups are unobstructed and ready for use.
La Marzocco is well known for temperature stability and the Linea is no exception. The heavy-duty, stainless steel, saturated brew groups are connected directly to the boiler, ensuring that your espresso is at its ideal temperature throughout the brewing process.
A machine that is being serviced usually equals a machine that cannot be used, along with lost profits and unhappy customers. However, with the Linea’s back up devices, routine maintenance and service can take place without interrupting the brewing process.
With the Linea’s careful design to ensure temperature stability, you don’t want it to go to waste by brewing into cold cups. The Linea comes with an oversized stainless steel cup warmer with plenty of room for your espresso, cappuccino and latte cups.
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!
