In won’t turn you into a skilled barista overnight, but it’ll surely help you improve the quality of your coffee. La Marzocco Linea Mini ($4,500) is probably the most professional home espresso maker you can buy today. And it comes with a corresponding price tag.
Inspired by the popular Linea Classic machines, the Mini is a kitchen-sized, serious piece of equipment for the kitchen (weights in at a hefty 71 lbs). It’s build to “serve for years to come”, featuring two boilers for brewing & steaming, a 2 L water tank, a temperature control wheel, brew paddle activation with pre-infusion for consistency of your espresso shots, & LED lights in case you feel like preparing coffee in the dark… Arrives in stainless, red, black, or white.
