…restores a classic La Marzocco Mondial 2 group to its old shiny self for 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters. This baby has been retrofitted with a PID temperature controller. Technical wizardry by David Ringwood. Additional pictures on Flickr.

Classic La Marzocco Collection

Kent keeps a large private collection of antique espresso machines, including, of course, La Marzoccos, La San Marocos, Gaggia, La Pavoni, and more. Recently, we’ve moved some of them out of storage for safekeeping in the warehouse. Some of the more interesting machines are now on display in our future showroom. Here’s a small sample:

La Marzocco Vulcano, produced 1968-80. Awarded the “Decorative and Industrial Arts” prize at the 24th Triennale di Milano exhibition.
Below: 3 group La Marzocco Mondial “2” Series, produced 1953-58.

Soup’d Up Mistral

That’s no minestrone. It’s one of two custom La Marzocco Mistrals destined for Stumptown Portland. Under the hood specs:

  • Mechanical Paddle – for variable pressure soft preinfusion
  • Individual boilers
  • Individual pumps
  • Independent PID controllers
  • Preheater – controlled preheating of incoming water

FYI, all La Marzocco machines can be customized via LM Works.
