As Corey and Aric moved forward on their original design with La Marzocco, they began to play with the idea of a truly a la carte setup. Where, rather than locking customers into one setup, they could allow them to create their own custom bar flow/spaces piece by piece - I want a couple of these taps, a couple of those and now let’s drop it into the bar. Each piece would be supported by individual stereo-sized modules sitting below the counter.
They built a prototype and presented it to La Marzocco, who were so blown away that the group decided collectively to focus solely on this fully modular concept. On March 1, 2012, Modbar LLC was born.
