Is a home coffee machine really worth it?

Perhaps the search isn’t so complicated after all — Winning Appliances brings the perfected technique of coffee-making from Italy to Australian homes, with La Marzocco’s Linea Mini. With this home espresso machine, morning coffee is more than just a routine; it’s an experience of luxury, decadence and sensory fulfilment in the comfort of your own home. No trips required.

In fact, investing in a coffee machine significantly reduces the average adult’s coffee expenditure, while elevating taste and experience. Drinking two $4.50 cafe coffees every day amounts to over $3200 a year — a cost almost four times the price of a high-end, automatic espresso machine, like La Marzocco’s Linea Mini, over an average lifespan of eight years.

The dual-boiler system of the Linea Mini permits brewing of a shot and steaming milk simultaneously, without compromising the temperature or texture of either component. A built-in water reservoir that holds 2.5 litres of water allows for multiple rounds of espresso experimentation before needing to be refilled, while the integrated brew group and thermal stability system ensure consistency for each cup.

With control over the internal brewing temperature through an integrated adjustment wheel, you truly have the freedom to try different flavour profiles and create a cup, perfectly tailored to your preferences. Further, LED barista lights illuminate the drip tray and allow vision of your coffee as it’s brewing.

However, if you’re looking for experimentation, La Marzocco’s pairing of the Linea Mini with the Lux D grinder will instil you with the confidence of an experienced barista. This features an On-Demand Dosing System and 61mm flat burrs that can produce 18 grams of coffee in just 10 seconds. Stepless grind adjustment provides more control over your brewing, allowing you to experiment with espresso shot time or volume. This package not only includes both the Linea Mini and Lux D grinder, but also a month of free coffee beans, 12-month service, BWT water filter jug, espresso and cappuccino cups and, additionally, installation and coffee training.

Not only that, the machine is gorgeous; with six finishes to choose from, it brings style, exuberance and elevation to any home.

Clearly the verdict is simple — the La Marzocco Linea Mini, offered by Winning Appliances, proves to be the perfect and most worthwhile choice for your home coffee machine investment, promising quality, consistency, ease and style.
