I have to say, what got me the most excited in that report was the LM "consumer" machine. Bring it on...I want one!!!

does the La Marzocco resemble a beefier La Spaziele in size... I was just looking at the cup placement on top of the machine and it looks to be a smaller machine than I would have thought....

From the horse's mouth - the guesstimate/target on the prosumer LM is between 3 and 4K US but it will likely initially be more until production ramps up. First ten or so will be 'beta' testers. Wouldn't you like to be one of those?

Your impression is correct -- the LM consumer model is shorter than the S1 and deeper. The prototype they showed had an external pump to allow for the low profile, as Ken alluded to:

And my guess is the wait will be a LOT longer than has been suggested, since they are waiting on the pump supplier to provide them with a pump that currently does not exist.

Posted April 18, 2005 link

They were clearly pleased with the buzz the new machine generated. I heard the same off-the-cuff delivery and pricing comments that have been widely reported, but I'm with Ken... the last mile is the longest, and Bill Crossland seemed content not rushing it out the door.

Said:

I am more interested in finding out... just what are they going to be naming the new pro-sumer La Marzocco machine?

Posted April 19, 2005 link

I don't know, but I'm struggling with what to even call this new class of equipment vying for the über-geek's attention (e.g., LM consumer, Cynessa one-group, Versalab). "Prosumer" doesn't fit the layman definition, and tacking on "commercial" really misses the point. Espressophile maybe?
