Ever wondered what the real differences are between the La Marzocco Linea Classic and Linea PB?
La Marzocco’s Tom Beaumont and our Craig Simon talk about the fundamental differences between the two models and how to decide which is best for your cafe.
The Linea Classic has been in the Australian market for over 20 years and is instantly recognisable from its straight-lined, boxy shape.
From the opposite side of the espresso bar, to a customer, these machines look very similar in design with the key difference being the finish. The Linea PB has a mirror finish and the Linea Classic has a brushed metal finish.
As a barista, using the machine you will notice some other very important differences from a functionality point of view:

Similarities in both machines
In Craig’s opinion, “Whichever machine you choose, you are guaranteed to make a fantastic coffee.” The Linea Classic is a brilliant and reliable coffee machine that will continue to stand the test of time. The PB’s additional features gives you more control and scope for experimentation, and for the real coffee geeks, the ABR machine is the ultimate in terms of control and functionality.
