La Marzocco – The Linea Mini Four Year Review

Four years ago this week...

I became the proud owner of a brand new, crispy white, La Marzocco Linea Mini. In that time it has given me endless hours of entertainment, content for videos, increased my barista skills, and also helped motivate me to create not one, but two businesses. So I do generally look at the Mini through rose colored glasses, but every year I do find myself stumbling upon a few new things to bring up as part of my ongoing series of long term Linea Mini ownership. Yeah, I think it's clear that I love the machine, but I'm not afraid to be pretty critical of La Marzocco home, and if you need proof of that check out the Swift Mini review.

This year I'll touch down on some of the classic topics like my longterm reliability and maintenance experience with the machine as a whole. I'll also go into one of the newest, and most anticipated features of the whole La Marzocco Home line; the Connected Application. Which has brought some new and useful features into the mix, but it's not all fun and games.  Lastly, I put ya'll to work on Instagram to see what questions you had about La Marzocco Linea Mini ownership, so I'll be answering a few of those in a Reddit-like AMA (ask me anything) style. So hit play on the video above and lets talk about the highs, lows, and daily life of having a popular prosumer machine on my counter.
