Strada EP

stradaEP1

Redefining the reliability, durability, and control of the espresso machine.

 

The Strada EP incorporates technologies from the aerospace and medical industries: where component failure is not acceptable.

 

La Marzocco set out to design the Strada EP (Electronic Paddle) because of a shift in the market. 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. The Strada EP has the capability to repeat pressure curves automatically. Once the barista has recorded a pressure curve tailored to a coffee, a simple movement of the paddle will replay the programmed curve. With the electronic paddle, the barista is able to focus on customer interaction without having to attempt to manually manipulate pressure during the brewing process.

 

Strada EP pumps have the same design as helicopter hydraulic pumps; paddle controls are the same as those used in deep sea mining and in medical applications. Together these components redefine the reliability, durability and control of the espresso machine.
