In preparation for Brew-by-Weight functionality, Linea Mini owners must update their machine’s firmware via the La Marzocco Home App to the latest firmware available as of October 12th. Additional compatibility checks are necessary. Here’s what you need to know:
For Linea Mini Owners with Updated Firmware:
If your machine is already connected and updated to the latest firmware version (v1.0rc7 or greater), your Linea Mini is fully compatible with Brew-by-Weight. All you will need to enjoy this feature is the Brew-by-Weight Scale.
For Linea Mini Owners with Connected IoT Board, but outdated Firmware:
If your Linea Mini has an IoT board but hasn’t received a firmware update (e.g., “v1.0rc3”), you’ll require a combination of the Linea Mini Scale and a Gateway. Please note that this installation may necessitate the assistance of a technician. This scenario is most likely if you purchased a Linea Mini that was connected capable, but you have never connected it via the App.
For Linea Mini Owners without an IoT Board:
If your Linea Mini is not connected capable, and you have not upgraded to an IoT board, you will need the Brew-by-Weight Scale and a full IoT kit.
Please verify your compatibility with these requirements before making a purchase to ensure you can fully take advantage of Brew-by-Weight.
