Linea Classic - Mechanical Paddle
The new conical mechanical paddle is inspired by the original mechanical group used on the La Marzocco GS – the first dual-boiler espresso machine with saturated groups (1970). This conical valve system assures progressive control of water flow and pressure via an internal orifice, before applying full pressure. The new conical paddle valve controls the pre-infusion while the volumetric pump is working at full pressure, therefore barista may also perform a pre-infusion on one group while the other is extracting coffee. This dynamic system allows the barista to reduce channeling for a more balanced extraction.
Linea Classic - PID Temperature Controller
The PID Controller employs an algorithm to regulate when and for how long the heating element is engaged in the brew boiler. The PID controller allows more efficient and stable regulation of energy. With this level of control, temperature variability is reduced dramatically, making for a more consistent brew temperature. The barista is able to adjust the brew boiler temperature to a precise numerical value using a simple keypad without having to remove machine panels.
