La Marzocco Uk & Ireland are proud to present the latest machine in its lineup, the KB90.
The Straight In Portafilter is designed to simplify the motions required to engage the portafilter and reduce the strain on the barista for even greater performance and everyday usability. High volume coffee environments demand that a barista can work fast and efficiently to produce drinks during busiest periods of the day. The Straight In Portafilter can noticeably mitigate the repetitive stress injuries occurring through its ease of action improving the natural workflow and output of barista.
The Steam Flush automatically cleans the shower screen with a burst of steam and a flush of hot water through the grouphead after each extraction. Thanks to the use of hot steam the shower screen remains clean longer, compared to the use of hot water only, reducing the need of in-shift backflushing of the machine. The Group Steam Flush helps the busiest bars keeping the machine clean also in the busiest rush-hours minimizing the unpleasant flavor notes due to a dirty brew path. The steam flush function can also be set splitting the two separate functions: the group steam clean that consists in a spray of steam and a 3 second hot water auto-flush.
The Drip Prediction algorithm automatically stops espresso extraction at the correct moment to ensure target beverage mass is reached. Drip prediction works by monitoring the flow of espresso into the cup via load cell, with this data the algorithm is used to predict the exact moment the beverage needs to be stopped in order to reach the correct final weight without the need to set an offset time. Because this system is algorithm based, it does not need to learn over time, and will not lose accuracy if you switch between blends, decaf and single origins.
