Coffee lovers: here’s something to perk up your mornings. Rimowa—known for their stylish luggage designs—has partnered with premium espresso machine manufacturer La Marzocco to create a limited-edition espresso machine.

Painstakingly assembled by hand in Florence, the Rimowa x La Marzocco Linea Mini espresso machine requires 40 hours of craftsmanship to achieve its pristine finish. From the bespoke all-aluminium hot water tap and knobs—emblazoned with the two brand’s monograms—to the custom-made portafilter, the detailed and meticulous design of the machine elevates it, resulting in an appliance that looks and feels premium.

Unlike the clean exterior of La Marzocco’s original Linea Mini, this limited-edition variant adds a touch of Rimowa’s design language in the shape of the German brand’s signature grooves on the machine’s all-aluminium panels. The result is a stylish espresso machine that looks more robust and industrial than the original.

“Working alongside La Marzocco has been a real design exercise, with a result that celebrates the artistry of coffee-making while embracing German engineering and innovative design, and we’re proud to have been able to bring it to life,” says Rimowa CEO Hugues Bonnet-Masimbert.

As expected from La Marzocco, the Rimowa x La Marzocco Linea Mini promises to bring a professional espresso experience to your home. Featuring dual boilers and a precise temperature controller, the professional-grade espresso machine is designed to not only help you brew the perfect cup of espresso, but to enjoy the process as well. Tactile components are paired with intuitive controls to ensure the brewing process is a breeze, while the machine’s easy-to-adjust pump pressure allows you to extract your espresso just how you want it.

Having made its debut on April 15 during the Milan Design Week, the Rimowa x La Marzocco Linea Mini espresso machine will be displayed at the La Marzocco pop-up store until April 21st, located in Palermo 21, Milan, as well as at the Caffè Rimowa pop-up, located at Spazio Maiocchi.

Made for the discerning coffee connoisseur seeking a hands-on and stylish espresso-making experience, purchase requests for the made-to-order espresso machine can be made through client advisors from either brand.
