We Sell Quality To Make The Best Coffee

Morag has been involved with coffee machines for over 25 years and started her own company in 2006 under the Caffe Italiano brand. This evolved into la tazza in 2012.
Here at la tazza we believe you should have a choice: a coffee maker that uses ground coffee or a dedicated pod machine and we’ll work with you to get the best solution for your coffee needs – espresso or single cup. We need to remember that during its preparation, coffee inevitably picks up traces of the materials with which it comes into contact. In coffee machines, the water – solvent par excellence – is rich in tannins. It is heated to high temperatures and flows through circuits made up of various materials. It is therefore very important to monitor the quality and provenance of the materials as closely as possible.
We’re not restricted to one brand of machine or one brand of coffee. Italy is renowned for great coffee and that’s why we have not one, but two premium Italian brands of pods. If you want beans roasted in New Zealand, we stock a blend made especially for us from the award-winning roaster Caffe Prima as well as beans from Italy.
Our coffee machines are from suppliers who provide great back up and if there’s a problem, we’ll put it right. We’re a small company that believes in creating lasting relationships with our customers. If you’re looking for something that’s not on our website, contact us and we’ll try to find it for you.

Espresso Machines for Your Home

Espresso machines should make great coffee, it is the singly one thing they are designed to do. Sadly, not all machines measure up to this basic function. Most importantly if you intent to use the espresso machine to make milky coffees such as Flat Whites and Cappuccinos, make sure it has at least 1000 watt output. This is the power level required to steam the milk in an acceptable time frame. Ignore all the talk about 15 bar as this is hardly a feature as most espresso machines are 15 bar. If the machine is also fun to use, easy to look after and good to look at then you are getting close to the essence of the espresso machines stocked by CoffeeTrendz. Finally machines should be reliable and virtually maintenance free, easy to service and have parts readily available. Machines should also take E.S.E. coffee pods to take the guess work out of having the right grind, the right dose and the correct level pressure when tamping the coffee in the group handle.

Ascaso from Barcelona offers an extensive high quality range of espresso machines and grinders at fantastic prices. They are also the world’s largest manufacturer of spare parts and components for espresso machines.

Pod espresso machines for your work place, treat you and your staff to excellent cafe quality espresso coffee without having to wander down the road. Our Italian hand made espresso machines are extremely easy to use without all the mess and fuss of convential coffee machines. We have a range of pod machines available for sale or rental.

La Piccola pod machines from Italy are built using specialised techniques and the best raw materials.  These machines are designed by Gian Luca Venturelli, founder of Lucaffe coffee solely for the use of pods.

Vibiemme (VBM) espresso machines have been made in Italy since 1985. Kiwis love to drink flat whites and lattes and this creates a challenge for most espresso machines. The Domobar Junior and Super are re-engineered in New Zealand to cope with this.  These machines are built to last.
