The art of customising espresso machines is no walk in the park. Dan Schonknecht, owner and operator of Specht Design, has essentially written the book on it. His work on La Marzocco machinery is beautifully restrained, timeless & functional. We had the opportunity to have a catch up, talking about his story so far… tell […]

La Marzocco Home now welcomes the aspiring home barista in Australia to become a part of the La Marzocco family and story.
There’s an undeniable beauty in the art of making coffee. It’s a process you see almost every morning at your local cafe – the barista grinds the carefully selected beans before lovingly working the coffee machine to create an aromatic espresso. The milk is then gently heated before it reaches the perfect temperature and consistency to blend with the fresh espresso.
There’s something special about watching a barista carry out this process, but there’s nothing quite like the appreciation that comes from creating something yourself. Coffee is no exception.
For those wanting to explore the possibility of producing perfect lattes from your very own kitchen, it’s not just a case of buying a home coffee machine, throwing some beans in it and letting it do its job. Not for those who really know their coffee.
Understanding the different origin flavours, the affect of the perfect grind, the correct tamp, the optimum milk temperature, means that you want to take control of your home coffee.
