La Marzocco Strada ABR Auto Brew Ratio (3 Group) Espresso Machine
Strada – Over the course of two years La Marzocco worked with thirty of the world’s finest coffee professionals to design a machine. This group was known as the “Street Team”; the Strada, Italian for street, was named in their honour.
ABR – Auto Brew Ratio – taking the process of espresso precision to the next level. With ABR you can work in a up to 3 different modes, to deliver ultra precise espresso extraction over TIME / WEIGHT / VOLUME.
Integrated Scales – The Auto Brew Ratio scales are incorporated into the espresso machine’s electronics system and provide the barista a new level of consistency, by giving control over beverage mass.
Programmable Doses – Auto-volumetrics ensure repeatability and consistency in high-volume settings.
Eco Mode – Can be programmed to enter stand-by mode, improving energy efficiency.
Using ratio mode, the barista programs the preferred brew ratio into the machine. When preparing to brew, the barista places the loaded portafilter on the drip tray scale, allowing the espresso machine to weigh the ground coffee. The barista may then engage the portafilter and activate the brewing cycle by selecting one of the programmed brew ratio buttons. The Ratio Mode will automatically stop the shot when the correct brew ratio is achieved.
Ratio mode is best applied in coffee bars that do not weigh every ground coffee dose, or those cafes that would like to eliminate the step of weighing and correcting the coffee dose to a tenth of a gram. Auto Brew Ratio allows the barista to eliminate the step of weighing and correcting the coffee dose, while still consistently achieving the same brew ratio.
