A Workhorse, Streamlined
With the Linea PB, La Marzocco took an iconic espresso workhorse and further refined it for better reliability, longevity, and versatility. The Linea Classic has already earned a reputation for staying steady even in medium to high volume cafes, but after 25 years it was time for some upgrades. With the PB, La Marzocco introduced new electronics components designed to refine and improve performance, new Piero group caps that better insulate water on its way to the brew group for better thermal stability, improved volumetric dosing, a heads-up display with built-in shot timers, and much more. This all adds up to make a machine with modern features tailored toward today's coffee shops, while still realizing the familiar dependability of a Linea.
The Linea PB AV uses programmable volumetric dosing for consistency, with two programmable dose buttons per group plus a continuous flush button. Dual boilers with PID temperature control are adjustable from the front panel display, and ensure shot to shot consistency and powerful steam. Also standard are La Marzocco's all-stainless portafilters with precision baskets and ergonomic handles. Features like a hot water wand with programmable dosing and a mixing valve to fine tune temperature, an automated backflush program, and a low-power eco mode for idle periods make this machine all the more bar-friendly so you can focus more on your drinks and hospitality.
Auto Brew Ratio
With optional drip tray scales, the Linea PB is able to pull shots with Auto Brew Ratio mode. ABR allows the barista to weigh a dose in the portafilter directly on the shot scale, and the machine will pull a perfect shot to your desired output ratio. ABR machines can also be run in Mass Mode, so you can instead pull shots to your desired output weight directly into your cups. And with Drip Prediction, the KB90 is able to predict when to cut the flow to the shot to make sure your beverages are consistently tasting their best.

Anatomy of Espresso Drinks: A How-To Guide and History of Espresso Drinks
Whether you’re actually sitting at a picturesque Italian cafe or simply visiting your local coffee shop, espresso does an extraordinary job at blending science and history to form a coffee delicacy capable of sparking a new found appreciation for the technique and art that goes into coffee, or even at times, if only for a moment, takes you to the distant land of its origins.
Espresso Machine Maintenance
You and your machine make great espresso; let's keep it that way. Taking care of your espresso equipment will ensure that it lives a long life and always does what it should. Here's your chore list.
Product Maintenance | Gasket Replacement
When it comes to giving your espresso machine a long and happy life on your bar, preventative maintenance is crucial. Regularly replacing worn out group head gaskets is an important part of that maintenance, since the gasket creates a tight seal for your portafilter.
