In 2007, in collaboration with two other leading members of the specialty coffee sector, La Marzocco invested in the Songwa Estates coffee farm in southwest Tanzania to establish a non-profit endeavour which is both educational and socially driven in nature. Why? La Marzocco handcrafts espresso coffee equipment and coffee, like the people whose livelihoods depend on its growth, is a precious resource.

Photovoltaic panels

La Marzocco generates electrical power by converting solar radiation into direct current electricity, producing 100% of its electrical needs – up to 233 kW. The program is monitored daily by an Energy Brain allowing for the company to begin to gather exact data on its carbon footprint.

Waste Management

La Marzocco aims to design machines that will lead to a minimal impact on the environment. Where possible, sustainable materials, components and packaging are used so that machines and/or packaging can be recycled. La Marzocco, additionally, adheres to a waste tracking system for those materials not subject to recycling.

Electric transportation

La Marzocco uses a Renault Twizy for local errands and tech stops at coffee shops in the historical center of Florence. A charging station at the factory allows recharging car with solar energy.

Additionally, since 2014 La Marzocco has promoted FIA’s Formula-e championship in light of its worldwide efforts to promote electric motor vehicles.

Electric Vehicle Charging Tower

At first glance it appears to be a gasoline pump.  On closer inspection it is a DBT-CEV Quick Charger electrical vehicle charger. DBT is a leader in innovative solutions for electric vehicle charging and the recently installed tower at the La Marzocco headquarters in Scarperia (Florence) is available to charge company vehicles as well as vehicles belonging to staff, an added incentive to go green and consider purchasing a vehicle that is environmentally friendly.
