Espresso Machine GS3 by La Marzocco is a must for the perfectionist and espresso coffee enthusiasts. GS3 is only theoretically a home machine, because it has sufficient steam power and performance recovery for small restaurants, catering services, professional offices and boutique hotels. A mechanical paddle controls the flow and water and pressure through the grouphead via an internal valve. Manual pre-infusion allows you to bring out different flavor components which affect the balance and body of the shot, and produce a rounder, softer espresso that highlights brightness, sweetness and delicate notes.
La Marzocco worked with a Portland craftsman to produce custom, hand-made wood side panels for the GS/3, so you can make your own espresso machine. You can choose walnut, figured maple, and mahogany, as well as limited options of wenge and bubinga.
The GS3 dramatically resets the gold standard for performance among all espresso machines.
