A Sneak Preview of SCAA New Products

1 04 2010

Ok, this just can’t wait for two more weeks. Here’s a sneak peak of La Marzocco’s new iPad app!!This is the first iPad program to work in concert with the forthcoming Strada, controlling functions and parameters such as: time, temp, pressure, and cup profile. Yes, you get to edit and manage your desired cup profile and import it into the app as you wish. The built-in artificial intelligence, or “AI”, (co-developed by La Marzocco, Stanford, and Apple) takes the profile and automatically adjusts other parameters to replicate the profile in the resulting cup.

The app also has analytical tools to indicate: body (in viscosity measurements), spot TDS, and coffee origin (via a built-in DNA sequencer in the grouphead). Best of all, it has a pre-configured scoring system (also controlled by the AI) that analyzes the resulting espresso on the almighty God Shot scale (out of possible 10). I mean, how else would you know you’re drinking a God Shot if it wasn’t a computer with AI telling you so?

Since the recent development of this app, we’ve been just constantly amazed at the superb quality of espressos this tool is able to produce. Forget repeatability, the La Marzocco iPad app brings you the controls over parameters never before possible.

The La Marzocco app is also built to be on the bleeding edge of Apple technology. When future versions of the iPad comes out with a built-in camera, the app’s AI is already configured to immediately take advantage of that and it will know the barista via facial recognition and automatically brew up the barista’s favorite cup profile. Connect it to an additional external camera facing the cafe, and the AI will do the same with frequent customers.

Come see the demo at SCAA!
