How to make a long black at home

by Dom Majdandzic 14 Jul 2018

That time I made a long black on a Linea Mini


If you’ve never made coffee on a La Marzocco Linea Mini, put it on your bucket list! La Marzocco have hit the ball out of the park with this home espresso machine. It’s literally the same quality as the commercial grade La Marzocco we use at White Horse Coffee and is a pleasure to use. A little while ago I visited La Marzocco Sydney HQ to take it for a test run. One of the coffees I made on the Linea Mini was a long black and seeing we’ve had a lot of customers ask us how to make a great long black at home, we filmed it for you to follow along. You can watch the video and see the recipe below. Maybe even more memorable than brewing on the yellow mini was the coffee I made on it. Wow, I never knew White Horse Coffee could be so good!

Watch the video

It’s worth mentioning that I ground the coffee using a Mazzer Mini. I’ve bought and sold these grinders over many years and the coffee I made that day was a reminder why these grinders are so well regarded. However, I truly believe any grinder you put White Horse Coffee into will make a delicious cup.

The recipe

  • Dose: 22g (ground coffee in the basket)
  • Yield: 20g (extracted coffee into the cup on top of 80% hot water)
  • Time: drawn in 20 seconds


  • LM Linea Mini
  • Mazzer Mini grinder
  • Scales
  • Coffee: White Knight Blend

More about the La Marzocco Linea Mini

This Mini machine of wonders has a few neat features I wish we had on our commercial machines. One feature I really like is the water temp dial on the side of the machine. This enables you to change your brew temp and gives you the ability to play with various tastes and flavours by adjusting the temperature with
a simple turn of a dial. I wish we had such ease of control at work.


The machine is constructed with precision like an Italian sports car. The finish of the panels and the group lever for activating water at the head are both first class. Try one out one day, you will be impressed.


Don’t forget to watch the short video we filmed (above) at the Sydney La Marzocco Headquarters and see the LM Mini in action. Thanks for reading this article, I hope it helps you brew a delicious long black at home. Now, I’m off to brew an AeroPress at home while I save up for my Linea Mini. Dom
