Child at heart fan builds Lego espresso machine. It's so cute!!!

Friday, 9 September, 2022

There are some incredible coffee super fans out there! One of them who goes only by the moniker, Coffee Brick, has taken it upon himself to build a La Marzocco Linea Mini, mini with Lego! 

I mean, who doesn't have fond memories of pouring over a Lego plan trying to recreate all sorts of wonderful scenes? 

And it 'works'! You can check out the video below but all the bits move and function.

This is the first we've heard of Lego Ideas, where you can pitch an idea to become an official Lego product. How sweet! Building community one tiny Lego brick at a time.

From the designer of this mini Mini:

"The La Marzocco Linea Mini is an iconic espresso coffee machine. I am a LEGO fan and a coffee lover. I hope to recreate the machine in LEGO brick form. 

In my creation, I try to simulate its basic functions such as power LED, pressure gauges and brewing. I hope fans can get the brewing experience in a LEGO form machine.

The size is 20 x 22 x 22 cm, in 1:2 to the real machine. 1500pcs. A mini portafilter and tamper are included. Some technic parts are applied in it for realising the power-on behaviour."
