La Marzocco proudly introduces KB90, the ultimate progression in espresso machine design where form meets function. With its patented Straight In Portafilter innovation, KB90 removes the need to twist the portafilter in the way the barista operates the machine, revolutionizing the espresso-making paradigm and significantly reducing the risk of wrist injury.
This latest addition simplifies and eases the motion of locking-in the portafilter to the group-head, setting a new standard in performance in high volume cafés. Named after the community renowned Kent Bakke, former La Marzocco International CEO and now Chairman of the Board, KB90 is inspired by the tried and trusted Linea PB model, presenting a familiar 3-button user interface and auto-volumetrics.
In addition to the Straight In Portafilter mechanism, other stand-out features include the Group Steam Flush and Drip Prediction. The Group Steam Flush, which automatically purges the group with water and steam, increases cleanliness over the course of service and provides for a better tasting espresso with no coffee residue. The Drip Prediction technology stops espresso extraction at the correct moment to ensure target beverage mass without having the need to worry about off-set.
KB90 is designed to create an efficient work environment and has also been conceived to make it easier for maintenance. Aesthetically, the body echoes the curves of the iconic Marzocco Lion shield with a retro shape, while celebrating the recent 90th anniversary with a festive red color.
Dual boiler system
Separate boilers optimize espresso brewing and steam production.
Independent brew boilers
Separate boilers for each group head allow barista to optimize temperature for individual coffees.
PID temperature controller
Allows you to electronically control coffee and steam boiler temperature.
Saturated group design
Ensure unsurpassed thermal stability, shot after shot.
Thermal stability system
Brew water is pre-heated before entering the boiler for increased temperature stability.
Keeps the group clean with an automatic burst of steam and a flush of hot water between extractions.
Pro touch steam wands
High performing steam wands that are cool to the touch.
Easy rebuild steam valve
Engineered so the valve can be serviced directly from the front of the machine without needing to be removed.
Hot water economizer
Enables you to fine-tune the tap water temperature for rinsing.
Intuitive programming makes it easy to adjust machine parameters.
LED lighting allows you to focus on your extraction and the cup.
Auto brew ratio/drip prediction (optional)
Precision scales incorporated into the drip tray improve beverage consistency by stopping the extraction based on mass. The machine uses an algorithm called Drip Prediction to improve shot accuracy and ease of dialing in.
