The Linea, now called the 'Linea Classic' is the ultimate workhorse when it comes to espresso machines. Before the new 'Linea PB' was released in 2013 there was the 'Linea Classic' for over 25 years. One of the most recognizable machines on the market with it's clean lines and clean aesthetics, the Linea Classic is an icon within the speciality coffee industry. La Marzocco was the first to introduce a Dual Saturated Brew Boiler to ensure quality espresso extraction and a reliable and consistent brew temperature with the GS machine and had this technology in the Linea from the beginning. Over the 25 or more years that the Linea Classic has been on the market it has received small incremental changes to slowly improve upon quality and reliability. The Linea Classic is a machine with tradition but also has contemporary technology inside. Available as a EE (Manual Control), AV (Auto-Volumetric) and MP (Manual Paddle Control) the Linea Classic will be able to meet your needs now and in the future. Hand-made in Florence, Italy.
