Manual Paddle (MP)
This Manual Paddle version of Strada allows progressive control of water flow, and pressure from a mechanical internal valve. This machine has dedicated pressure gauges for each brew group enabling the barista to read the pressure throughout the extraction, to ensure the perfect espresso.
This Strada also includes a hot water economizer for energy efficiency and individual boilers to allow custom temperature for each brew group. This machine will really give the barista control. You can get Electronic Paddle and Manual Versions of this machine.
Electronic Paddle (EP)
La marzocco set out to design the Strada EP (electronic paddle) because of a shift in the market by providing the barista full control over the brewing process as never before. as more coffee roasters began moving toward direct trade and relationship coffees, we realized there was a need for a more stable, reliable and versatile machine that enabled them to showcase the very best of these coffees.
Pressure profiling allows the barista to bring out different flavor components which affect the balance and body of the shot, and produce a rounder, softer espresso that highlights brightness, sweetness and delicate notes. The Strada EP enables the barista to create that perfect expression of a particular single origin coffee as an espresso, and reproduce a flavor profile that may be difficult to attain at a constant 9 bars of pressure.
Over the course of two years, la marzocco worked with the world’s finest coffee professionals to design an espresso machine. this panel of experts was named the “street team.” the strada, italian for “street,” was named in their honour.
street team input resulted in the most technologically advanced espresso machine featuring traditional hydraulics, semi-automatic brewing control and a barista-friendly design. this means a lower profile to invite customer engagement in a café setting, while also providing the barista with an open, expansive work area, and a design that encourages creativity and customization so that each machine can be unique.
in an aim to complete the strada line of models, the strada ee is characterized by its underlying mechanical and electronic features (semi-automatic technology) built within the design of the strada. the initials “ee” refer to a feature whereby brewing is activated by the simple start & stop motion of the paddle on the group head, albeit with electronic pre-infusion. the strada ee model includes individual brew boilers, proportional steam valves featuring anti-suction valves, a thermal stability system and easy-access for preventative maintenance.
