Coffee Brewers and Espresso Machines »
Brewing coffee is a simple thing. Take coffee that's fresh and has been roasted with care, grind it to an appropriate coarseness, and add the appropriate amount of filtered water brought to a near-boil. At least, that sounds simple. Bean variety and roast level will affect how coarse the coffee should be ground, the ideal brewing temperature, and even which brewing method is best. All the same, using a pour over method or an immersion brewer like a press pot doesn't have to be complicated – it just has to be delicious.
One of the top coffee grinder manufacturers has just released one of the most versatile grinders to date. With the capability of grinding from French press to espresso, the Mahlkonig Pro M provides the grinding range that would normally require two separate grinders. The grinding range combined with features like the "hands free" operation and break functionality help make this grinder ideal for both low-medium volume commercial settings and home use.

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.
