La Marzocco launches espresso machine

La Marzocco has launched a new espresso machines called the KB90.

The machine has a patented Straight-In Portafilter innovation, which removes the need to twist the portafilter when the barista operates the machine.

“It’s always been a part of La Marzocco’s DNA to focus on the job of the barista. Twenty years ago, we started thinking that espresso machines should be operated with natural movements and motions to increase the enjoyment and speed of use for the barista,” said Kent Bakke, former La Marzocco International ceo and now chairman of the board.

“With the creation of the Straight-in Portafilter, I feel that we have built a machine that will forever improve the way the barista interacts with our machines.”
