La Marzocco are the industry leader in commercial espresso machines. The company was founded by brothers Giuseppe & Bruno Bambi in Florence in 1927, taking the name from Donatello’s famous sculpture of a seated lion with a shield bearing the symbol of Florence. They were responsible for some landmark events in espresso machines design and innovation and, to this day, produce some of the finest machines you can buy. Their Linea range are arguably the most reliable statement machines in the industry, while their Strada models take precision espresso extraction to new levels. We can't recommend them highly enough.
