Linea Classic 2-Group

A tried and true machine, the Linea performs reliably in high-volume settings and is perfect for your new cafe, bar, or restaurant.
The Nuts and Bolts
Here's what you really need to know about this incredible machine:
- Quality: The PID Controller employs an algorithm to regulate when and for how long the heating element is engaged in the brew boiler. The PID controller allows more efficient and stable regulation of energy. With this level of control, temperature variability is reduced dramatically, making for a more consistent brew temperature. The barista is able to adjust the brew boiler temperature to a precise numerical value using a simple keypad without having to remove machine panels.
- Volume: A tried and true machine, the Linea performs reliably in high-volume settings and is perfect for your new cafe, bar, or restaurant. This machine is our favorite go-to espresso machine for any in-office cafe with populations between 100 and 500 people. For more than 500, we recommend a 3 group espresso machine.
- Maintenance: Backflushing of the groups will be performed by the barista daily, and replacement of gaskets, group screens, and water filtration, as well as a steam wand rebuild will be performed every 6 months.
