Today, we announce a collaboration with RIMOWA, a global leader in luxury luggage that shares its values of timeless design and unmatched craftsmanship. Together, the two brands bring forth the RIMOWA x La Marzocco Linea Mini espresso machine, a perfect blend of Italian and German design and engineering.

The partnership between La Marzocco and RIMOWA represents a shared design venture that seamlessly merges the ingenuity, craftsmanship, and meticulous attention to detail they are both known for. At the heart of the collaboration is the Linea Mini, a professional-grade kitchen-scaled espresso machine distinguished for its technical performance and distinctive design, revisited to feature RIMOWA’s signature grooved aluminium and an array of bespoke components meticulously crafted by skilled artisans.

The introduction of the limited edition RIMOWA x La Marzocco Linea Mini espresso machine affirms the Florentine company’s spirit of innovation and its tradition of connecting with its community through coffee culture and lifestyle.

Made in Florence, Italy with each piece requiring 40 hours of dedicated craftsmanship, the RIMOWA x La Marzocco Linea Mini espresso machine features RIMOWA’s aluminium on its exterior, with the grooved panels built in RIMOWA’s factory in Cologne, assembled and installed entirely by hand at La Marzocco’s customization workshop, the Officine Fratelli Bambi. This high calibre of craftsmanship extends its finishings, from the frame to its base, which features the two brands’ logos in celebration of the union. The design also integrates a bespoke hot water tap and knobs made in aluminium, emblazoned with La Marzocco and RIMOWA’s iconic monograms. Its custom portafilter is reinterpreted in anodised aluminium, as are its feet.

“This venture reflects our commitment to excellence and the shared values with RIMOWA—an iconic brand synonymous with exploration, innovation, and an unwavering dedication to aesthetic brilliance. Together, we have crafted an exceptional example of two iconic synergized brands that create a brilliant design. Both historic brands that work to pioneer in their sectors, synonymous with quality and durability, have come together, and I am proud to show the public the result,” adds Guido Bernardinelli, CEO of La Marzocco.

“This partnership is a testament to the power of collaboration and the possibilities that arise when two brands come together with a shared passion and purpose. Working alongside La Marzocco has been a real design exercise, with a result that celebrates the artistry of coffee-making while embracing German engineering and innovative design, and we’re proud to have been able to bring it to life,” says RIMOWA CEO Hugues Bonnet-Masimbert.

In celebration of the collaboration, the new design is set to make its debut on April 15th during Milan Design Week. The RIMOWA x La Marzocco Linea Mini espresso machine will take centre stage at the ‘La Marzocco store’ pop-up until April 21st, located in via Palermo 21, Milan, as well as at the “Caffè RIMOWA” pop-up, held at Spazio Maiocchi, via Achille Maiocchi 3, Milan.
