New Product Alert: La Marzocco Micra

Friday, 18 November, 2022

Ok, so having an espresso machine at home is becoming more and more popular (read: necessary) as our collective desire for amazing quality coffee increases.

These come in all shapes and sizes and materials and level of capability, but one of the most coveted for the last couple of years has been the La Marzocco Linea Mini. It's still a pretty solid piece of equipment though and could be used in small cafes to great effect. With the boom of the home cafe scene, La Marzocco knew there was still a gap to fill and so they decided to make a mini of the mini and now we have the Micra! Same iconic shape, but more compact with some really cool features (which we will be testing out next week!). This also means that it is a little easier on the pocket, though it is still an aspirational buy for sure!

Since 1927, La Marzocco has been producing espresso machines that are handmade in Florence Italy and is known as a leader in both the design and innovation of their craft.

In November La Marzocco announced the launch of a new espresso machine designed to bring the cafe home

The Linea Micra is the first La Marzocco espresso machine designed for dedicated use in the home. In order to achieve this, La Marzocco has created their smallest machine yet without compromising the core values of quality, performance, and reliability.

This machine allows for the rapidly growing number of passionate coffee drinkers to recapture the café experience in the comfort of their own homes.

The Linea Micra features dual stainless-steel boilers; one dedicated for steaming and one dedicated for coffee brewing, both with PID temperature control. These dual boilers allow for precise temperature control of the dedicated coffee boiler as well as high quality steam able to produce incredible microfoam.

Pressure is created using a rotary vane pump, the same style used in espresso machines in cafés around the world. This robust pump produces the steady and consistent pressure that is required to brew incredible espresso.

Additionally, the Linea Micra features a first-of-its-kind convertible portafilter. The convertible portafilter allows for home baristas to easily change between spouted and bottomless portafilter styles with a single device.

The Linea Micra also conserves counterspace while offering a quick 5-minute heat up time. This allows for a kitchen of any size to be easily elevated to café status.

Connectivity via the La Marzocco Home App allows for easy control of temperature, energy-saving scheduling, and easy control of brewing parameters.
