Pimp style! New La Marzocco Linea 3 group in the shop..

Yes yes! After looking around for a while for an upgrade for the Faema Smart I was able to do a good deal for a second hand (but as good as new)  La Marzocco Linea. This machine can be called a historical classic, it definitely helped to establish the independent coffee scene throughout the world.


This machine will put us a on level higher of quality due to the dual boiler system which gives us more temperature consistency, even when pulling some glasses of tea. And at the same time keeping up a constant steaming pressure, so steaming up pitchers will be easier.

One of the options for the machine we will have installed are Portaflon portafilters, this will give a much more constant flavour profile of the shots throughout the day. This Portaflon portafilters prevent the build-up of coffee oils in the portafilter which steadily occurs in a normal brass one. These build-up gives a rancid and bitter taste to your shot, and that is something we don’t like.

Also due to a dual boiler system the group heads will no longer be running too hot, with again a lot of build-up of coffee oils. So overall flavour consistency will improve vastly.

Normal the machine will be in town on Thursday or so feel welcome to come and take a look at this beauty.. For more specifications you can download here the product folder of the Linea.

Hell Yeah!
