If you’re on the search for a sleek and streamlined solution for espresso production, Modbar has two excellent options to consider. Modbar EP and Modbar AV are under-counter systems designed to improve workflow, and they also provide striking design that will make a statement in your café. Not sure whether one of these products or a conventional commercial espresso machine is best for your coffee bar? Here, we discuss the key differences between these two stylish and efficient tap systems:
Modbar EP: The Original
Modbar EP is Modbar’s flagship product. This innovative system combines the mod and tap to offer complete control to the user. The EP is designed for the discerning barista who appreciates the ability to craft espresso with the ultimate precision. The EP espresso system features the same gear pump as the La Marzocco Strada EP. This ensures incredibly precise pressure control, allowing the user to create unique extraction profiles for each shot.
Modbar AV: Ideal For Busier Environments
The Modbar AV espresso system is the culmination of years of collaboration between La Marzocco and Modbar. Based on the iconic Linea PB and Linea Mini, the Modbar AV offers the ever-popular temperature stability system of these machines.
When you’re looking for a product that can keep up with the demands of a high-volume environment, the Modbar AV is ideal. Like the EP, this version has stunning styling that saves space on the bar. Moreover, its efficiency is unbeatable. This under-counter module is capable of supporting two espresso taps without any additional power. With its intuitive, user-friendly controls, the barista can tell the machine to stop dispensing water with the touch of a button. The AV version can be upgraded with built-in scales to enhance volumetric accuracy.
Although these two configurations are designed to provide different levels of control, both are available in custom colors to suit the aesthetic of your shop. With their sleek profiles and modern technology, the Modbar EP and AV are high-end solutions for upscale coffee bars.
Whether you’re operating a smaller specialty shop and prefer the EP or need the AV model to keep up with customer demand, you can find both versions at Voltage Coffee Supply.
