The Strada EP is designed as a more stable, reliable, and versatile machine that gives the barista full control over the coffee brewing process.
As more coffee roasters work with direct trade coffees, La Marzocco designed a machine that allows baristas to bring out the best of each coffee being served. The Strada EP (electronic paddle) gives the barista the control to create and duplicate pressure profiles for each coffee.
The Strada EP is capable of automatically repeating each customized pressure curve. The barista simply moves the paddle to repeat the curve. And, as the brewing process progresses, a feedback loop continuously monitors pressure and adjusts motor speed to match the profile. The EP stores four programmable pressure profiles and one fly-by-wire mode per group.
Additional features include individual displays with real time pressure and shot timers, variable solenoid valve control for the steam wand, exposed saturated groups for increased temperature stability, ergonomics and work space visibility, independent coffee boilers and water pre-heating system, and multiple PIDs allowing allowing the barista to electronically control coffee and steam boiler temperatures.
The Strada EP is available with two or three groups and features a variety of ergonomically friendly improvements.
