Redefining the reliability, durability, and control of the espresso machine.
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.
The Strada EP 1 group is equipped with a self-contained 2 liter water tank that makes plumbing optional.
INDIVIDUAL BOILERS – Set a different temperature for each group head, giving you precise control over extraction.
PROPORTIONAL STEAM VALVE – Lever-style activation for proportional solenoid steam valve eliminates the needs for regular maintenance and offers a gentle ramp to full steam pressure.
AV CONFIGURATION, WITH OR WITHOUT SCALES – Auto-volumetric ensure repeatability and consistency in high-volume settings.
Proportional Valve Technology
Variable solenoid valve control of the steam wand.
Employs a two stage programmable pre-infusion process that allows for multiple groups to be in operation at the same time.
Independent Coffee Boilers
Separate boilers for each group head allow baristas to optimize temperature for multiple coffees.
Multiple PID (coffee and steam)
Allows you to electronically control coffee and steam boiler temperature.
Reduce energy consumption while contributing to temperature stability.
Prior to entering into the coffee boiler, water is pre-heated – thus increasing productivity.
Exposed Saturated Groups
Increased temperature stability, ergonomics and workspace visibility.
Performance Touch Steam Wands
High performing steam wands that are cool to the touch.
Adjustable Drip Tray
Allows you to use the machine with tall, to-go cups.
2 or 3 groups.
Semi-Automatic (EE), Manual (MP or EP), Auto-Volumetric (AV) and AV with Scales (ABR).
