fb80 – a celebration of artisan quality & the company’s 80th anniversary
The FB80 was manufactured for the 2006 World Barista Championship in Bern to mark the company’s 80th anniversary and was named to commemorate the anniversary as well as the founding brothers since “FB” stands for Fratelli (brothers) Bambi. While equipped with GB5 technology, it is fitted with panels that can be produced in any RAL colour or decorated with artwork or logos. It is ideal for locations where quality in the cup and design are equally important.
The FB80 reflects La Marzocco’s pursuit of perfection, and expression of excellence.
Like the GB5, a dynamic preheater assembly ensures that water entering the coffee boiler is precisely 170 degrees F. 170 degree F water replaces hot water exiting the group, reducing temperature swings in the coffee boiler. An algorithm-based PID temperature controller further reduces temperature fluctuation in the coffee boiler.
The group cap, which was designed by Piero Bambi, and an integrated ruby flow restrictor reduces channelling to ensure that water never leaves the saturated area of the coffee boiler, hence eliminating the introduction of temperature instability during brewing.
The mechanical paddle enables the barista to saturate the coffee with low pressure (line pressure) water before applying the full 9 bars of pressure. This dynamic system allows the barista to control the variable of pre-infusion and reduce channelling for a more balanced extraction.
