la marzocco KB90 espresso machine: designed for the ultimate workflow

la marzocco, leader in espresso machine innovations since 1927, has introduced the KB90 — the ultimate progression in espresso machine design where form meets function. its straight-in portafilter innovation removes the need to twist as the barista operates the machine, dramatically enhancing the espresso-making experience and significantly reducing the risk of wrist injury — a game changer in the industry.

named after the community-renowned kent bakke — former la marzocco international CEO and now chairman of the board — the KB90 simplifies and eases the motion of locking-in the portafilter to the group-head, and sets a new standard in performance for high volume cafés. ‘it’s always been a part of la marzocco’s DNA to focus on the job of the barista’, kent bakke says. ‘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. 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.’

as well as the straight-in portafilter mechanism, the KB90 also boats group steam flush and drip prediction. the group steam flush automatically purges the group with water and steam, and increases cleanliness over the course of service — in turn, providing for the optimum tasting espresso. meanwhile, drip prediction technology stops espresso extraction at a precise moment to guarantee target beverage mass without the worry of off-set.

while the KB90 has been designed to create an efficient work environment with easy maintenance, aesthetically, its body echoes the curves of the iconic marzocco lion shield with a retro shape. a festive red color celebrates the company’s landmark 90th anniversary.
