La Marzocco Strada EP
Commercial Machine | Espresso
Using technologies from the aerospace and medical sphere, the La Marzocco Strada EP was born out of a need to provide baristas with full control of the brewing process. Following a movement that valued the extraction of unique coffee flavour profiles through the adaptation of the brewing process, there became the demand for more stable, reliable and versatile machines.
The La Marzocco Strada EP enables the barista to extract different flavour components and effect the balance and body of the espresso through pressure profiling. Pressure profiling allows the barista to produce flavours and qualities within an espresso that would be difficult to extract at a constant 9 bar pressure. The electronic control paddle enables the barista to precisely control the pressure, through electronic gear pumps, and the motor speed. The classic paddle interface allows for the manual control of the pressure throughout the extraction process as well as enabling up to four pressure profiles to be programmed and reproduced. Individual displays shown real time pressure and shot timers.
The high performance steam wand features cool touch technology to provide easy handling and a reduced risk of burns. Proportional valve technology uses solenoid valve control of the steam wand. The exposed saturated groups provide increased temperature stability and workspace visibility for ergonomic use. Each group has an individual boiler that allows the barista to optimise the temperature for different coffees. Each boiler is electronically controlled via a PID system to provide temperature stability. The pre-heating system increase productivity by pre-heating the water before it enters the boiler. An automatic cleaning cycles makes this machine easy to maintain. The USB port ensures that the machine is always running on the latest technology through quick and easy updates.
Available with two or three groups, this machine can be customised in a range of colours based on the RAL colour system so that it can be matched to your branding and setting.
