La Marzocco KB90 2/3GRP Espresso Machine
the ultimate workflow machine, a new standard in high volume café performance.
The KB90 is the ultimate evolution of the Linea PB form. Designed to optimize the workflow for the barista in the world’s busiest bars by improving the ergonomics and features of the machine. The KB90 is named for our Board Chairman, Kent Bakke. 20 years ago, Kent imagined one of the most exciting new features of the KB90, the Straight-in Portafilter. Kent has always seen La Marzocco’s mission to create machines that make the lives of the barista easier and more efficient, and the KB90 embodies this philosophy.
With optional drip tray scales, the KB90 is able to pull shots with Auto Brew Ratio mode. ABR allows the barista to weigh a dose in the portafilter directly on the shot scale, and the machine will pull a perfect shot to your desired output ratio. ABR machines can also be run in Mass Mode, so you can instead pull shots to your desired output weight directly into your cups. And with Drip Prediction, the KB90 is able to predict when to cut the flow to the shot to make sure your beverages are consistently tasting their best.
Straight-in Portafilter: The KB90's signature feature is the new straight-in portafilter design. The brand new group lock-in mechanism allows a barista to gently insert the portafilter straight in, no twisting or contorting required. Lifting the portafilter handle engages the locking mechanism, and the group automatically seals when the pump is engaged.
Steam flush: After each shot, the KB90 is able to run an automatic flush of both hot water and steam to keep your dispersion screen clean and your coffee tasting its best.
Auto Brew Ratio: With Auto Brew Ratio (ABR), you can use the built-in drip tray scales and programming to weigh out your doses in the portafilter, and brew to a set ratio or to your desired beverage mass. ABR machines can also dose by volumetric pulses if desired. Please contact our sales team for more info about ABR machines.
