La Marzocco Linea Mini has transformed the professional espresso machine for home use. Its enormous steam power, excellent temperature stability and classic and minimal design make La Marzocco Linea Mini unique. The Marzocco Linea Mini is one of the first connected machines, which allows functionalities accessible through the app. It is a commercially certified double boiler espresso machine with saturated group head, PID, rotary pump and internal tank. It is equipped with an innovative heat exchange system that preheats the water entering the boiler and the app allows you to program the pre-infusion. La Marzocco’s intention with the Linea Mini was to combine quality, power and reliability and fit it into a space small enough to fit in your home, with the stunning stainless-steel panels. The steam boiler is 3.5 liter and the heat exchange system supplies the boiler with water at 200 degrees. The La Marzocco Mini line has used a minimalist approach to design without sacrificing quality. La Marzocco Mini line is particularly known for the high quality of the extraction. The machine is ready in 5 minutes thanks to its flash boiler. The Marzocco Linea Mini, is equipped with a single and double spout filter holder. La Marzocco supplies anti-drip filter holders, clean and ergonomic, the baskets are easily removable and replaceable, they are made in stainless steel. The La Marzocco Home app now has an integrated guide to learn how to clean your espresso machine properly and safely. This wonder unit includes a smaller “flash” boiler (170 ml) to ensure that the preparation of the espresso is managed separately from the distribution of steam and hot water.
It has a relatively large steam boiler for both hot water and steam distribution (3 liters). The La Marzocco Home app includes a built-in timer along with programmable temperature and pre-brewing. Their stainless steel is of the highest quality to ensure long life and machine parts, free from contamination and defects. The machine is equipped with the same 3-way solenoid valves that cover the hydraulic system of its commercial machines, in addition to the water flow rate adjusted to the group. A robust all stainless steel assembly design to maintain high temperatures.
The design of the user-side group is identical to the usual layout of La Marzocco Linea. Most of the internal components are identical to the models of La Marzocco commercial machines. The differences are mainly seen in the “display” of the machine through the LED lights on the faceplate. La Marzocco makes it easy to use two indicator lights to indicate if an adequate supply of water is available for use and if a stable dispensing temperature has been reached. The main innovation behind the La Marzocco Linea Mini is the integrated group, which is distinct from the saturated groups for which La Marzocco is known, it is different from the usual E61 groups, you get the same temperature stability as the saturated groups in less space. The small boiler is advantageous because it heats quickly, in just 5-10 minutes, you can easely change the brew temperature using the PID controller.
The rotary pump is powerful for the required pressure of 9 bar and is quiet. It also allows this machine to be immersed directly in a waterline. A manual mixing paddle can be used to control the water flow, which acts as a simple on / off switch. The rest of the interface is very simple: a red light indicates the temperature and a blue light indicates the status of the water tank. The two knobs are used to control the steam pressure and the brewing pressure. The steam wand is the same as the original Line, it has a lot of power. The unit is equipped with a hot water tap, for making tea or an Americano. La Marzocco Mini Line, is available in six colors. It is a sturdy machine and has great attention to detail in design and features. With La Marzocco Linea Mini cleaning and maintenance are simple, and the components are long-lived. It has a 3-way solenoid valve, the scraps will be dry and convenient to empty. The stainless steel filter basket only needs a quick rinse. Daily maintenance consists simply of emptying the drip tray and pouring water into the large tank. You can also connect it with the plumbing and drainage kit. All remaining parts are easy to access for cleaning or maintenance. The valves allow manual washing without running an automatic cleaning cycle, we recommend doing it regularly to avoid accumulation in the machine.
The Linea Mini is an exceptional espresso machine, well built, fun to use, produces great espresso and make steam like a commercial machine, it has double boilers and a great retro style. La Marzocco is a machine designed to give you total control of the internal temperature and pressure gauges. With the Linea Mini, the lack of light is not a problem. Under the head of the group, there are built-in lights that illuminate the area immediately around the machine, these lights are intelligently designed, to ensure that the Mini Line does not consume more power than necessary. The lights come on only when the machine pump is activated. The internal infusion temperature of your machine is a particularly important quality, it determines its flavor. The Linea Mini offers you a temperature control with an integrated adjustment wheel, you can rotate it to increase or decrease the temperature from 85 to 93 ° C. To ensure that the temperature is as stable as possible, La Marzocco Linea Mini has an integrated brew group that is connected directly to its boiler. Since the water does not have to travel a long distance before it reaches the filter holder, it does not cool down during extraction. To turn the Linea Mini on and off there is a dispensing paddle attached to the front that you can move to the left or right to start and end the extraction phase. One of La Marzocco’s most potent qualities is its automatic pre-brewing. The Marzocco Linea Mini has a hot water tap on the side, which you can use to dispense hot water, perfect for stretching an Americano or for your favorite tea blends.
Linea Mini has a rotary pump, which generates pressure for the production of the infusion through a rotating disk divided into smaller sections within a larger space. As the disc spins, water is forced through the slots into the larger space and through the pump. They are efficient and silent. As a semi-automatic machine, the Mini Line specializes in flexibility. This is a semi-automatic double boiler mini espresso machine, inspired by the design of the Classic Line. despite being “Mini”, the quality of the components used in its construction is excellent. It is aesthetically very nice, but it is not an ideal choice for those who are new to coffee making, it requires a lot of experience. La Marzocco linea Mini includes a stainless steel portafilter with single spout and double spout – 5 portafilter baskets: 7 gr, 14 gr, 17 gr, and 21 gr – Blind basket.
The unit has a paddle brew control system, emperature control with internal stepped turn wheel, an Integrated brew group (similar performance to the saturated brew group, but much more compact), Indicator lights provide machine status feedback, Pre-programmed one second pre-infusion, analog interface, bluetooth connection which allows for remote access to power on/off your machine. Custom on/off schedules, boiler temp status and control, pre-infusion and machine stats, rew boiler: Stainless steel, .17L filled via HX system),Steam boiler: Stainless steel, 3.5L – Reservoir: 2L – ETL/NSF certified for commercial use.
