Happy New Year!
2017 has certainly been a year to remember for us here at La Marzocco UK. Celebrating our 90th year, opening the La Marzocco Local office in Leeds and the launch of the Leva just to name a few.
See our 2017 round up below…
Out of the Box, Leeds
December saw La Marzocco bring the annual Out of the Box event to the North for the first time, at Duke Street Studios in Leeds. We were ecstatic to fill the venue throughout the day and into the night, with about 70% of these being new visitors from the North!

Launch of the Leva
The all new La Marzocco Leva was unveiled at HOST in October, an evolution of the lever machine dedicated to the artisans, the pioneers and to all those with an eye to the past and a vision for the future.

La Marzocco Local, Leeds
In July La Marzocco were proud to announce the first ‘La Marzocco Local’ office opening in Leeds. The ‘La Marzocco Local’ office provides a connection point to drive and support the local coffee community in the North and is fundamentally an open community space being used for events, educational activities, networking and showroom experiences: cuppings, competitions, inspirational talks and cross brand evenings. We look forward to welcoming you to more events throughout 2018!
La Marzocco celebrated their 90th Anniversary at London Coffee Festival in April 2017 with a more spacious booth as well as presenting an evocative pop up 1920’s instillation featuring the flawless replica of the first coffee machine manufactured in 1927 by Giuseppe Bambi; the Fiorenza.
A milestone like this wouldn’t be celebrated properly without a party and the Saturday evening of the festival saw us throw a bit 90th birthday party where we were honoured to see so many people show up to help up celebrate.
London Coffee Festival
Back for it’s 7th year London Coffee Festival 2017 was bigger and better than ever before. La Marzocco held its ever popular True Artisan Cafe and Roasters Village as well as bringing along some new additions such as The La Marzocco Kitchen, VIP Secret Garden, La Marzocco Local and finally the 90th Pop Up Stand!
Glasgow Coffee Festival
La Marzocco were proud to be back in Glasgow in May supporting the third year of the Glasgow Coffee Festival. Event organisers, and Glasgow coffee heroes, Dear Green Coffee Roasters worked off of La Marzocco’s latest innovation, the Strada AV ABR and the queue at their stand was non-stop; an ideal pace for the capability of the Strada! The Saturday evening also saw La Marzocco and IKAWA Coffee hosting the Glasgow round of La Marzocco Local in a secret location which was a fantastic night as always.
As official machine sponsor La Marzocco kick started the Cup North weekender with the official La Marzocco Friday launch party with throwdowns, pizzas and great vibes with co-hosts Allpress Espresso and Rapha, with beer support by Crate Brewery. The festival itself saw a rotating batch of some awesome roasters on the La Marzocco stand working from our custom Strada ABR.
