Subject: La Marzocco Linea Single Group Espresso Machine - No Longer for Sale
 

This is a completely refurbished La Marzocco Linea Single Group Espresso Machine.  I worked on it for over a year, tearing it down to the frame, cleaning, descaling, degreasing and polishing every part before putting it back together.  Any part that was worn was replaced with OEM parts direct from La Marzocco USA.

Asking / Suggested Price: 3250.00

EDIT:  ADDED LINK TO REBUILD STORY:  There's a link to the rebuild here on Home-barista:  click here

• The original temperature sensor for the brew boiler was replaced with a Fuji PID and temperature sensor for full control of the brew water temperature
• The control computer was moved from its original home into a custom-made laser box that houses the computer, Fuji PID, and program key.  All of this is cooled by two commercial high output fans. Mounted cleanly underneath
• Frame and major panels were professionally polished
• Trim parts were professionally powder coated red
• Valves rebuilt with new springs
• Steam and hot water valves completely rebuilt with new pistons and springs
• Replaced pressure gauge
• Replaced manual fill switch
• Most of the wiring was replaced with high temp wire for long life
• Main power switch disassembled and cleaned
• Replaced the aluminum drain box with updated version
• New steam heating element
• New Brew boiler heating element
• Flow meter rebuilt
• New swivel steam wand
• Group head rebuilt with new bolts
• Comes with three (3) portafilters (one is bottomless)
• New 4” legs
• New Fluidotech pump
• Includes Everpure water filter system (you’ll want to replace the cartridges)
• 2 Stainless steel steam milk container
• 1 stainless steel mocha container
• Torr African blackwood tamper

Everything you need to run this espresso machine is included.  I have all of the receipts for all of the components that were replaced.   Printed operator manual, printed La Marzocco service manual, and photos of the work.   I am willing to discuss price but I reserve the right to remove certain items from the complete kit if the price is lowered.  

I have a crate for shipping if needed.   Shipping will not be included in the price.
Thanks for looking.
Steve

Hello
Would like to sell the Linea for a fair price.  Please let me know what "fair" is.  I know what I put into it, but my value isn't everyone's value.  

I also have an SJ grinder to sweeten the deal so there's literally nothing to buy but the beans.

Thanks,
Steve

Aaron: Thank you.  

This isn't any old espresso machine.  Aside from the tanks and the tubing almost everthing else on this Linea has been replaced.  I followed Paul Pratt's work and had several discusions with him about my work.   The pressure safety valve is brand new and the steam relief valve is brand new.  There is an entire box of pieces and parts that I've kept for posterity that come with the machine.

Steve,  I think your public email is bad.  I'm getting rejects.
