Crew Review: La Marzocco Linea Commercial Espresso Machine

While we've carried the GS/3 for awhile now, we've decided to expand our La Marzocco selection to include their commercial-class equipment. Our first round of testing and reviews covers one of their most popular machines, the Linea, which comes with choice of 1 - 4 group heads and is available in manual paddle, semi-automatic and automatic configurations.

Gail gives us a brief overview of the machine's internals, walks us through its features and makes us a latte on what is fondly referred to as A Northwest Workhorse.

    You guys crack me up! And watch out for the tall legs on that thing. A baby might crawl underneath :-)

    Really???? Whoo-HOO! As soon as they show up in stock on the website, I'll call with an order. I want to pick it up in person, but of course we're headed out of town this weekend for a few days. We might be able to get over there after we get back next Tuesday though. What are your weekday hours?

      We're open Mon - Sat, 10am - 6pm. If you want to order one and have us hold it here for you, give us a call and we can setup the order for in store pick up. Then it will be saved aside and you can pick up at your convenience.

    I'll definitely do that! Should I wait until they show in stock on the website?

      You can place an order now -- Rockets are one of the few items we do pre-orders, although it will just be for a matter of hours in your case ;)

    Yay! I just ordered my dream machine! We'll try to get there to pick it up next Tuesday before you close, after we return from our trip. That will give me time to look it over and make sure everything is in order. I'm so excited!!!!
    Do you work on Tuesday's? I'd love to meet you!

    Kat,

    This may be a stupid question but I was just wondering if the pump you showed in the video actually comes with the Linea, or if that has to be purchased seperately?

      Hi Lee -

      Not stupid at all! Yes, it does come with the machine, included with purchase. Let me know if you have any other questions :)
