La Marzocco

Founded in 1927 by Giuseppe and Bruno Bambi, La Marzocco had its beginnings in Florence, Italy, birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and home to such geniuses as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Brunelleschi who created some of the most celebrated works of art in the world. In 1939, it was La Marzocco that developed and patented the first coffee machine with a horizontal boiler, now an industry standard.
