Known for specialising in producing premium hand crafted espresso machines, La Marzocco are taking their collective years of hospitality experience on the road and bringing the La Marzocco Northern Roadshow to a city near you.
To further develop the coffee community in the North of the UK, La Marzocco opened their first ‘La Marzocco Local’ office in Leeds in July 2017.
The ‘La Marzocco Local’ office was created to be a connection point to drive and support local coffee communities. Since it’s opening, the space has offered community driven events with a focus on hospitality; featuring involvement from Grey Goose Vodka, Storm Tea and some of the UK’s finest coffee roasters. This continues to be an ongoing effort to support the pioneers within the industry as well as partnering with the new generation of artisans.
Starting June 27th, La Marzocco will be hosting specialist events to further grow local hospitality communities in the North of the UK. Using the same ethos that propelled La Marzocco Local forward, the events will provide enquiring minds with the tools to realise their ambitions and to elevate them to the next level. Bringing in guest speakers and exclusive partners, the topics of the Northern Roadshow events include ‘Finance and Design’, ‘Green Bean Supply’, ‘Marketing and Magazines’, ‘Coffee and Cycling Culture’ and ‘Cold Brew and Cocktails’.
La Marzocco are firm believers in breaking bread to build relationships so guests can expect locally sourced food and drink at each of the roadshow stop-offs.
La Marzocco will be running a competition to visit their home in Florence, Italy. The more events you attend the better chance you have of winning the trip.
