About the La Marzocco GB5 Commercial Espresso Machine
La Marzocco's most recognisable design may be the clean contemporary lines of the La Marzocco Linea but in the GB5, they offer something more nostalgic for the lovers of vintage aesthetics. Equally iconic in its looks, the GB5 is no less impressive in its engineering. In fact, it is much more comparable to the newer Linea PB.
It was one of the first commercial espresso machines to fully exploit on board CPU control. It also features dual PID systems and insulated boilers, providing unrivalled temperature stability. This ensures a high level of consistency during even the busiest rushes.
South African coffee lovers may recognise the GB5 as the machine found in every Woolworths café across the country. This should speak volumes about the consistency and capacity of these machines, given the amount of people those cafés serve.
La Marzocco GB5 AV vs. EE
The La Marzocco GB5 comes in two models - the AV (Automatic Volumetric) and the EE (semi-automatic). The AV offers software-driven, highly accurate volumetric brewing, for consistency in high volume environments. The EE operates via a manual push button - your barista starts and stops the shot when they choose.
