La Marzocco KB90
Commercial Machine | Espresso
The La Marzocco KB90 brings a new standard to high performing espresso machines. Based upon the same user interface as the linea PB with the 3-button keypad, this espresso machine will feel familiar to users. This efficient and ergonomic espresso machine is designed to be faster, cleaner and easier to use, increasing productivity and improving user experience.
With the barista comfort and needs in mind, the La Marzocco KB90 features Straight In Portafilter which is designed to specifically reduce the stain on the barista. By making the portafilter more ergonomic, the speed and efficiency of the barista is increased. With many baristas under immense pressure to maintain productivity during busy periods every little feature to make their job easier helps to improve their performance and ability. By removing the twisting motion of traditional portafilters, the risk of repetitive strain injuries is reduced by providing ease of action and mimicking natural movement.
The need for in-shift backflushing is reduced by implemented a Steam Flush with automatically cleans the shower screen and grouphead using both steam and hot water. This cleaning method is more efficient than simply using just hot water meaning that the shower screen remains cleaner for longer. By keeping the components clean the coffee quality is maintained by minimising unwanted flavour notes produced by dirty parts.
Consistency is also improved through the use of a Drip Prediction algorithm which automatically stops the espresso extraction and the optimal moment to ensure that each coffee reaches the target beverage mass. Due to being algorithm based, this system will always be accurate.
The steam system is designed to be both ergonomic and easy to maintain. The Pro Touch steam wand offers cool touch technology which reduces the risk of burns during operation and cleaning. The steam valve helps to maintain the same quality of milk frothing that La Marzocco coffee machines are known for. The steam valve is also easily accessible and removable should maintenance need to be carried out.
The sharp angles and coloured side panels gives this machine a striking appearance that would lift any coffee bar. This espresso machine provides a modern aesthetic yet practical design that would suit busy working environments like coffee shops, restaurants and busy cafes.
