On a cold January day in 2017...
much like this one, I brought home my brand new La Marzocco Linea Mini. This was almost exactly five years ago, and at the time I was just a new coffee enthusiast looking to learn the craft, but little did I know that it would take me where I am now in 2022. To date I've pulled thousands of shots, steamed hundreds of gallons of milk, and made nearly 200 YouTube videos in the process. So needless to say this little espresso machine has seen some milage, so I know a think or two about Linea Mini ownership.
So like last year, the year before, and every year since I've owned the Linea Mini, I'm updating my longterm review. Of course I'll be covering the all important topic of reliability, but also I've picked some questions from followers on my Instagram to cover in depth. So for the first time I'll be breaking down the cost of ownership, if I have any regrets about my machine choice, and of course the elephant in the room, the time when I'll be retiring the Mini from active duty to casual kitchen duty.
So if you want to know the truth about long term Linea Mini ownership, this may very well be the video to watch. So hit play and let's get this spro on the road!
