Designed by La Marzocco
Manufactured by La Marzocco
Founded in 1927 by Guiseppe and Bruno Bambi, La Marzocco was born in Florence, Italy, the epicentre of the Italian Renaissance. With a passion for Italian craftsmanship and innovation, the first coffee machine with a horizontal boiler was invented in 1939, today an industry standard. Becoming the first in a series of extended innovations from the introduction of a dual boiler system and saturated groups.
A shared passion for tradition and the search for superior quality and reliability continue to distinguish the company today. In 2015 the La Marzocco Home product line was born, consisting of the GS3 and the Linea Mini. Now paired with the Lux D and the Swift Mini grinders. Providing a taste and quality of a coffee shop experience at home for Home Baristas and enthusiasts.
The GS3 MP is the ultimate home espresso machine for the true coffee aficionados. Manually control pre-infusion and shot volumes with the Brew Paddle to manipulate the perfect extraction in real time.
“GS” stands for its saturated brew group (gruppo saturo). GS3 is ideal for those who wish to extend excellence to include a supreme cup of coffee – whether in small restaurants, boutique hotels or at home in the kitchen. A must for the perfectionist and espresso coffee enthusiast.
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, which make for a luxury espresso preparation platform. All that’s left for you to do is to grind, dose, and tamp. The new conical mechanical paddle (available on the MP version) is inspired by the original mechanical group used on the La Marzocco GS, the first dual-boiler espresso machine with saturated groups (1970). This conical valve system assures progressive control of water flow and pressure via an internal orifice, before applying full pressure. The new conical paddle valve controls the pre-infusion while the volumetric pump is working at full pressure. This dynamic system allows the barista to reduce channeling for a more balanced extraction.
Exposed Saturated Group: increased temperature stability, ergonomics and workspace visibility.
Dual Boiler System: separate boilers optimize espresso brewing and steam production.
Internal Pump: makes the GS3 ideal for the home.
Dual PID (coffee and steam): allows you to electronically control coffee and steam boiler temperature.
Insulated Boilers: reduce energy consumption while contributing to temperature stability.
Ruby Flow Restrictors: synthetic ruby flow restrictors resist scale formation and erosion.
Pre-heating System: prior to entering into the coffee boiler, water is pre-heated – thus increasing productivity.
Stainless Steel Portafilters & precision baskets: for improved cup quality and consistency.
Digital Display: temperature display, shot timers, flow pulse counter and intuitive programming simplifies the adjustment of machine parameters.
Performance Touch Steam Wands: High performing steam wandsthat are cool to the touch
Water Reservoir: an integrated 3.5 liter water tank makes plumbing optional.
Hot Water Economizer: fine tune the temperature of the hot water spout.
