La Marzocco

Founded in 1927, Florence, by Giuseppe and Bruno Bambi, has traditionally specialised in producing high end, hand-crafted professional espresso coffee machines geared towards excellence. The Florentine town of Scarperia hosts the factory and company headquarters with branch offices throughout the world including London.

La Marzocco continues to maintain the tradition of an artisanal approach in its production process. The development of its know-how is generational and the craftsmanship is accompanied by the pursuit of the most advanced technologies such as the Linea PB, the machine used for the SCA Ireland Barista and Latte Art championships.

The Linea PB represents the first full update to the technical and stylistic workings of the Linea in the nearly 25 years it has been in production. The Linea PB features the iconic La Marzocco polished stainless steel body, updated with simplified lines and a lower profile.

To complement its stylistic updates, the Linea PB features improved component longevity and new electronics that give the barista control over functions directly from the machine interface – including boiler temperatures, brewing volume, hot water tap dose, and auto-backflush, among others.

La Marzocco would like to wish all of the Irish competitors the very best of luck.
