Out of the Box is the biennial La Marzocco event held in Milan that is intended to celebrate the specialty coffee community, and to bring people together to discuss emerging ideas in coffee. La Marzocco hosts Out of the Box October 23rd-24th. The event is open to all (registration is requested), and includes a lineup of speakers presenting on a range of topics. Speakers at Out of the Box 2015 will cover topics that include emerging trends in coffee, developing company culture, leadership, and design innovation. Exhibits will showcase La Marzocco products, projects including the Tanzania coffee farm Songwa, artists’ work including an exhibit by renowned photographer Jakob de Boer, interactive displays, workshops, and much more. The event also includes plenty of fun and entertainment, concluding with a party on Saturday October 24th.

Out of the Box 2015 takes place October 23rd-24th at Magna Pars Suites Milano. We hope you will join us!

Out of the Box takes place to coincide with HOST, the world’s largest hospitality tradeshow, also taking place in Milan. 2015 is also a special year because Milan is also host to the World’s Fair, Expo, the six month exhibition that draws visitors from around the world, and takes place in a different city around the world once every four years. While visiting Milan, Out of the Box attendees can also experience Expo in its final weeks.

New York Coffee Festival

In less than two weeks our team will be heading to New York City to participate in the inaugural New York Coffee Festival. September 25, 26, and 27 a collection of some of the finest coffee companies from around New York, the greater northeast region, and even from Europe will be assembling to celebrate all things specialty coffee at the 69th Regiment Armory.

The New York Coffee Festival is produced by Allegra Events, the same group that developed and launched the London Coffee Festival and the Amsterdam Coffee Festival. Both of these events have had great success in Europe and we’re very excited to welcome this style of event to the US. Friday September 25th is geared toward trade attendees, while the 26th and 27th are open to the general public. Expect a fun, festival atmosphere with food, music, and, of course, coffee.


La Marzocco will be offering two unique experiences for attendees to check out.


La Marzocco Home

Have you seen the Linea Mini yet? If not, come by the La Marzocco booth for your chance to experience a kitchen-sized version of our most iconic espresso machine, the Linea Classic. Home baristas and professionals alike will have the opportunity to jump on a Linea Mini and make espresso for themselves.

If you have never made an espresso before, fear not, as our team will be there to guide you through the experience.
