La Marzocco staff presented 9 candidates as follows:

Our congratulations this year go to Sherif Mohamed who – in the words of one of our staff members in Italy – “cares about others, not only professionally, but also personally and is always extremely kind and comprehensive with everybody…” as well as to Frankie Jamali (2nd place), followed by Filippo Zilio and Dan Harvey (both earning 3rd place).


Criteria included proactivity, the fact of providing products and services to the benefit of La Marzocco equipment, and their delivery in a timely and quality-driven fashion.

Our congratulations this year go to Luminaire Coffee – who have dedicated themselves to going beyond a supplier/customer relationship, becoming trusted friends over their years of collaboration with us (they have helped La Marzocco develop its own electronics’ voice and continue to innovate in partnership with our R&D team) as well as to TD Metal (2nd place), followed by A&C (3rd place).
