A story of dedication, quality,
design and functionality.

La San Marco is synonymous with espresso coffee machines and a global benchmark for anyone who expects the best from tradition and innovation. The evolution of our machines over time is marked by the numerous models that have made an everlasting impression with their unique qualities reserving a special place in the hearts of those who have used and enjoyed them.


From those bearing the legendary winged lion accompanied by the original La San Marco inscription of the early 900 Series, to the 1950s models of the Lollobrigida and Disco Volante, and the ones from the SM era up to present day with the highly successful 85, 95, 100 and New 105 Multiboiler Series. This is the story of an Italian company that has successfully exported the time-honoured tradition and love of espresso coffee around the world and has now secured a top spot in the industry through a well-established organisation and highly efficient sales network.

2 groups – 15 litres

In the early 1920s, Giovanni Battista and Francesco Romanut started producing machines under their own brand name (La San Marco) in Viale S. Daniele 12B in Udine.
This 1920 model is an espresso coffee machine with steam operation and dual heating power (electric/gas). At the end and on the body of the cylindrical casing, the model has fine fittings reproducing a lion of St. Mark, the emblem of the city of Venice.


900 model
2 groups – 1 litre

‘The oldest company, the most modern machines’. With this slogan, La San Marco presented itself to the public by promoting the 900 model. All efforts of technology were made to give this column model perfection, thanks to the extremely robust mechanisms for the time, very easy to handle and at the same time with sober and elegant lines. The 900 is equipped with a combined heating system on demand, between electricity and gas. This model expresses an aesthetic style strongly reminiscent of Art Deco, defined in Italy as the Rationalist style.


3 groups– 10 litres

Patented in 1942 and produced until the year 1950, the steam-pressure version of the model uses the same assembly as the Model 900 column machines. The bodywork is one of the first produced in Italy with a horizontal shape. The features that make it unique are the two external side parts that heat the cups visible from both sides.


1 group – 5 litres

Among the various successful models launched on the market, the ‘Lollobrigida’ model stands out for its sinuous curves and captivating shape. For these unique and unmistakable characteristics, it is dedicated to the famous actress Gina Lollobrigida. Today it is one of the most sought-after models by collectors all over the world.


2 groups – 10 litres

Designed by architect Gino Valle, the ‘Disco Volante’ was immediately characterised as a machine with strong technological content, avant-garde for the time, with innovative design and futuristic lines. The brand logo is illuminated by a neon light inserted inside the protruding bodywork. Produced under the La San Marco brand by Officine Romanut of Udine, it was created as a response to strong competition in the industry and became a success eventually reaching the third series.


2 groups – 15 litres 

The body has an advanced design with partially painted side panels and matt steel inserts with a brushed effect. The upper part with a cup compartment is very spacious. Thanks to the assembly line system, this model was built in many units and colour variants. The interest in flamboyant colours is suggested by the exuberant Pop Art current, which was to influence the field of design, even contaminating everyday objects such as espresso machines. 


2 groups– 15 litres

The need to make the machines less heavy, more manageable and functional prompted manufacturers to make the first bodies in painted iron and some parts in steel, a practical choice to adapt the machines to the style of the premises in which they were to be placed. This model of the 80 Series, destined to remain a classic in La San Marco production, incorporates an activation/release button and features a bright orange colour scheme.



San Marco presents the first espresso machine equipped with an innovative consumption control system for individual baristas called Compubar. This new technology involves connecting the machine with a computer in order to monitor and manage the consumption of the equipment.



La San Marco develops a new system for managing pre-infusion. With the Liontronic model, the barista for the first time has the option of having a programmable electronic pre-infusion on the machine’s display.


85 Series

This is a historic line of professional espresso coffee machines, one of the most successful ever for La San Marco. Produced entirely at our factories in Gradisca d’Isonzo in Italy, it is characterised by its unmistakable line and attractive aesthetics, entirely covered by metal and stainless steel anti-fingerprint surfaces. Since its introduction, it has been a favourite with baristas and coffee connoisseurs the world over for its robustness and reliability.


105 Series

This model, designed by the famous Studio Sottsass Associati, was introduced in 2000 and evolved over the following years into several variants, establishing itself as one of La San Marco’s best-selling products. The advanced technology, the elegance of the design, the reliabilitỳ of the components, and the soliditỳ of the materials of the 105 series guarantee high-level performance and the best qualitỳ of coffee extracted.


100 Series

It is the La San Marco espresso machine most appreciated worldwide thanks to its unmistakable design and high quality recognised by the market. Three models, endless possibilities of customisation with lights and colours. A jewel of technology and design that remains a representative example of Italian style and La San Marco quality.


105 Multiboiler Series

Multiboiler technology is introduced for the first time, whereby the hydraulic circuits of each individual coffee group and the hot water-steam boiler are independent, offering the considerable advantage of being able to brew coffee with different sensory profiles even though it comes from coffee from the same botanical species and with the same roasting profile.


Leva Luxury

The lever model with a steel body and tempered glass is presented in 2, 3 and 4 group versions. Like the company’s other lever models, it is equipped with the exclusive Leva Class® system that La San Marco patented back in 2014. The infinite variety of colours of the glass bodywork made possible by the RGB LEDs, the carbon fibre finish and the chrome treatment of all the steel parts make the Luxury a machine capable of conquering at first sight.



Its V-shaped structure, from which it takes its name, gives life to a machine that overturns the perspective of the contemporary bar and puts the work of the barista, or rather, of the baristas, centre stage. Unique in its kind, it promotes a new, increasingly convivial and interactive coffee-drinking experience.



The collection allows the machine’s operating conditions to be optimally adapted to any type of blend or single-origin or speciality coffee. Presented in three technological variants, with single boiler, multi-boiler and multi-boiler with pressure profiling, D. is also innovative in terms of design, for its dynamic lines and the finish of the machine body with its special soft-touch effect coating.



The Delecta two-group espresso machine offers speed, ease of use, and simplified maintenance. It features cutting-edge technology, a heat exchanger boiler, one hot water wand, and two steam wands. The backlit keypads for the coffee dispensing groups allow for simple and intuitive programming with programmable coffee doses. It also has removable stainless steel risers for cups of different heights and a large cup warming surface on top.
