Since 1927, every La Marzocco machine has been made by hand. Since 1999, Stumptown Coffee Roasters have been pulling shots on La Marzocco machines. To celebrate this partnership, Stumptown Coffee will be hosting a series of events with La Marzocco next week, where folks will have an opportunity to rub shoulders with twoΒ ItalianΒ espresso machine manufacturers. Chris Salierno and Ettore Scagliola will be on hand from Florence to tell stories and talk shop from the Italian LM factory.

These events are open to the public and absolutely free. All events start at 6:30PM and will be located at each city's Stumptown roastworks, including the brand new HQ in Portland.
