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 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.

La Marzocco Strada EE vs. AV vs. EP

The La Marzocco Strada comes in three types. The EE (semi-automatic) is entirely barista controlled in terms of stopping and starting the shot. This is the simplest and most affordable. The AV (automatic volumetric) offers software-driven, highly accurate volumetric brewing with programmable doses. The EP (electronic paddle) versions allow you to introduce water at the pace and pressure you set and control by hand. This last version offers the most control as well as full pressure profiling functionality. These pressure profiles can then be reused electronically.
