Facing the UNESCO heritage Tuscany hills, the very ones painted by many Renaissance artists, stands the first La Marzocco factory. A historical space that is now turned into an exemplary space of culture, innovation, education, and research dedicated to building the future of sustainable coffee.
La Marzocco officially opened the doors of its headquarters in Pian di San Bartolo in 1960 for the unveiling of Accademia del Caffè Espresso. It is there that La Marzocco was based until 2009, the year the company moved to its current headquarters in Scarperia.
The Accademia’s goal is to advance the espresso coffee sector, increase knowledge, competence and responsibility deriving from the meeting of cultures, expertise and skilled work.
The space at the Accademia desires to unite every generation to experience the coffee culture and its element, to share experiences and, through ideas, generate an active debate on the contemporaneity and sustainable future of this precious plant.
The amazing building with its gorgeous spaces offers o the visitor a unique experience.
