Siphon (or Syphon) brewers made their way to the U.S. at the end of the 19th century and became popular for their elegance, showmanship, and ability to produce a clean and flavorful cup of coffee. The combination of coffee as commodity and the convenience of electricity caused the Siphon brewer to fall off the map in the middle to late 20th century. Recently the Siphon has rode the wave of specialty (or culinary) coffee back into the spotlight. While the beautiful glass and open flame brewing process still keep the elegance and showmanship in tact, the Siphon is most coveted for it's ability to brew the best cup of coffee you've ever had. In the eyes of many coffee aficionados, the combination of full-immersion brewing, consistent temperature stability, and use of a cloth filter make the Siphon the ideal coffee brewer. It is the favorite method of many of us at Prima and we're confident you will love it as well. We know the Siphon can seem intimidating at first, so take a look at the links below for more information.
The 5 cup (591 mL) size siphon can be found here.

Few advancements in espresso machine technology over the past fifty years could be called revolutionary. The latest advancement featured in La Marzocco's Strada Electronic Paddle (EP) is one that has earned that title. Pressure profiling was first introduced into the mass market in 2009 by the Slayer Espresso Machine. The La Marzocco Strada takes this new technology to the next level by allowing the barista to save up to four pressure profiles at any given time. Along with the ability to save profiles, each group has a digital display that shows the temperature (±0.1°C), shot time, and current bars of pressure (±.1 Bar). The Strada perfectly combines the durability and workmanship of La Marzocco with the technology of the future.
Compak is a company dedicated to quality and craft. Their newest endeavor is a line of espresso grinders that raises the bar on control and efficiency. Aptly named "Fresh" for its innovative design and functionality, these grinders were created from conversations with baristas around the world and from the experience of a company that has been around for over 50 years. The K-10 Fresh offers a number of innovative features including: the ability to pre-set the the dosing time for a single and double shot to within a tenth of a second, manual push-button doser that keeps time of amount dosed on the digital display, and a completely new dosing system, electronics and control system. Also, the electronic display shows the selected grinding point, a configurable warning to change the burrs, promotional message with your logo, shot counter, and multi-language display.
For most companies it's hard to find motivation for pushing out new products if you find yourself on top already. This is not, however, the case with La Marzocco. The Italian based espresso machine manufacturer continues to push the envelop when it comes to innovations in espresso machine technology. The newest line from La Marzocco continues their progression in the specific areas of temperature stability and pressure profiling. We've discussed the Strada Electronic Paddle version in detail in our Strada EP blog post and listing for the 2 Group Strada EP. The Strada Mechanical Paddle employs technology similar to the Mechanical Paddles on other La Marzocco models but with a few new features including individual pressure gauges, digital PID control, and dedicated group boilers.
