La Marzocco Espresso Machines – Handmade in Italy
Elegant engineering for superior temperature control
A dynamic preheater assembly ensures
that water entering the coffee boiler is at precisely 170 degrees.
170-degree water replaces the hot water exiting the group, reducing
temperature swings in the coffee boiler. An algorithm-based PID
temperature controller further reduces temperature fluctuation in the
coffee boiler. A group cap designed by Piero Bambi and an integrated
ruby flow restrictor reduces channeling and ensures that water never
leaves the saturated area of the coffee boiler; this eliminates the
introduction of temperature instability during the brewing process.
Dual Boiler Technology provides solid steam power & optimal brewing temperatures.
Espresso coffee machines have two primary functions: brewing espresso and steaming milk. High demands of steaming power can upset the temperature stability of a single boiler heat-exchanger type machine. This can result in bitter or scorched espresso. La Marzocco machines have completely separate, dedicated boilers for each of these functions, allowing them to operate simultaneously yet independently from one another.
The coffee boiler contains a large quantity of water, which is maintained at an optimal brewing temperature kept constantly under control by a precision thermostat that ensures a maximum temperature variation between one coffee and the next of less than ± 1° C. Moreover, among our machines, those with the PID system ensure a temperature variation between one coffee and the next of even less than ± 0.5° C, an industry record.
The high capacity steam boiler contains no internal heat-exchangers. Moreover, the steam pressure can be easily adjusted without impacting the coffee brewing temperature, and its high powered output of dry steam makes it easy to prepare creamy cappuccinos, lattes and macchiatos.
La Marzocco machines mean distinctive features, like...
- food-safe stainless steel boilers are long-lasting and resistant to scaling and corrosion.
- dedicated service boiler means increased steam power and hot water capacity.
- saturated brew groups provide unsurpassed thermal stability.
- PID system to electronically control brewing temperatures.
- mechanical paddle options that enable the barista to manually control pre-infusion.
- electronic paddle technology for pressure profiling of each single brew group.
- external pumps that are easy to access and service.
- customizable colors upon request (RAL required).
