La Marzocco Strada - Barista Madness

500x_lamarzstrada_5.jpg

There are so many elements to the art of espresso, and one of them is how configurable a machine is. There's the temperature, the amount of pressure, and there is of course how well you grind the beans to get the most dissolved solids into the cup. Oh - and the water is another big factor. Recently Gizmodo had the pleasure of checking out the new Strada from La Marzocco.

With a machine like the Strada, pressure becomes a whole new variable For instance, a barista might start the extraction at low pressure, ramp up to high pressure, and back down. La Marzocco is showing off two prototype models one of which is the Strada M.P. -- a manual paddlewheel machine, like the aforementioned Slayer, where pressure's adjusted with a sliding paddle that sits on top of the grouphead.

Both machines are expensive and well - made for high end espresso boutiques, but we can visit those as well as drink our single serve coffee right? Right.
