The permanent collection at the Accademia is comprised of different spaces (tradition, innovation, botany) which, together, provide visitors with the opportunity to discover the world of coffee and specifically espresso.
The journey begins with the coffee plant and concludes with tasting a cup of excellence. Visitors will interact with technologies, research, discoveries, and company history, all part of a larger structure that is in constant evolution.
The espresso machine:
design craftsmanship engineering
Craftsmanship meets research and development – a technological innovation is just one small part of a story made up of success, failure, courage, and vision. Very often failure describes and instructs better than success. Images, graphics and words by the protagonists concerning key projects at La Marzocco accompany technical introductions that outline the functioning of an espresso coffee machine.
the raw material
Learn about the coffee species and its geographical diffusion, discover the long journey of this antique beverage and the challenges that coffee farms face today due to climate change and much more.
The coffee greenhouse, the ecosystem, the plant
