La Marzocco GS3 Espresso Machine
performance at home – la marzocco technology and performance in an elegant, self-contained footprint.
The La Marzocco engineering group set out to take the most advanced La Marzocco technology and translate it for a home espresso machine.
The gs3 features the thermal stability system used in the La Marzocco Strada, including a preheating system, digital PID controller, saturated groups, a dual-boiler system, and digital display. These features make for a luxury espresso preparation platform: everything you could hope for as someone who wants to enjoy the best-quality espresso at home.
All that’s left for you to do is to grind, dose, and tamp.
About the La Marzocco GS3 Espresso Machine
The La Marzocco GS/3 was actually the Italian manufacturer's first offering to the home barista, although it's also been designed to serve in small commercial applications. Its design and technology are inspired by the La Marzocco Strada, the company's high end commercial offering which is used by some of the best cafes the world over.
Like the Strada, the La Marzocco GS/3 includes all the best technology to ensure consistency and quality in espresso extraction, but it does so in a package small enough for a kitchen counter.
The machine includes separate and ample-sized boilers for steaming and brewing, PID for temperature stabilisation, pre-infusion and an internal volumetric pump. Temperatures can be set using the in-built digital display, making adjustments very easy. The cherry on top is auto on and off functionality built in, so that you can have the machine warmed and ready to go for that first coffee in the morning!
La Marzocco GS3 - AV vs. MP
The La Marzocco GS3 comes in two versions. The AV or Automatic version features volumetric functionality. This means you can set the volume of water you want to use for your espresso and the machine brews accordingly.
The MP or Manual Paddle version incorporates a paddle-based extraction system like the type you find on the Strada. Combined with a periscope-style pressure gauge, this allows you to manually pressure-profile your espresso. In other words you can vary the brew time and the brew pressure during the course of the extraction, to completely optimise your espresso!
