Over the course of two years, La Marzocco worked
with the world’s finest coffee professionals to design
an espresso machine. This group was named the “street
team.” The Strada, Italian for “street,” was named in
their honor.
Street Team input resulted in the most technologically
advanced traditional espresso machine featuring
traditional hydraulics and a barista-friendly design. The
Strada EE features individual brew boilers, a thermal
stability system, and easy-access for preventative
maintenance. A lower profile invited customer
engagement in a café setting, while also providing the
barista an open, expansive work area. Finally, the Strada
platform has been designed to encourage creativity and
customization so that each machine can be unique.
STRADA EE
SEMI-AUTOMATIC (EE) PADDLE
The Strada EE paddle works like an on-off switch found in other “EE” models
and employs a two-stage, programmable preinfusion process. First, the pump
engages and water flows to the coffee bed for a programmed period of time.
Next, the pump disengages for a programmed dwell period before the pump
reengages for the duration of the extraction. The barista moves the paddle to
the “off” position at the end of the extraction.

Two-stage preinfusion allows for multiple groups to be in operation at the
same time, regardless of the stage of the brewing process from one group
to the next.
