La Marzocco is a world-renowned brand known for making beautiful, high quality, superbly crafted, and uniquely designed espresso machines, with great attention to detail. La Marzocco developed and patented the first coffee machine with a horizontal boiler, now an industry standard.
Made exclusively for specialty cafes featuring iconic Italian design and user-friendly interface; the Strada has always been evolving over time based on barista feedback. Within the Strada family, the Strada is the choice for customers who appreciate the familiarity of volumetric controls, and who seek repeatability and consistency in high-volume settings.
With the reliability one expects from time-tested La Marzocco equipment, the Strada delivers the most stable brewing platform thanks to its thermal stability system and individual coffee boilers. Performance Touch Steam Wands improve the machine’s ergonomics remaining always cool to the touch. Barista-friendly electronics make it easy to change settings, program the machine, update the firmware by USB and provide the user an enjoyable, comfortable and unique experience.
La Marzocco set out to design the Strada 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, there was an instant 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 flavour 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 enables the barista to create that perfect expression of a particular single-origin coffee as an espresso, and reproduce a flavour profile that may be difficult to attain at a constant 9 bars of pressure.
