You may recognize the name from your time spent in lines awaiting your order at a favourite coffee shop. They are big, beautiful machines, and in the right barista’s hands, they make amazing espresso to take as is or as part of any coffee drink. La Marzocco GS/3 makes it possible to emulate the results of the big machines right in your home. It is a sleek machine, 14 inches high, 16 inches wide, with digital instrumentation, dual boilers, stainless steel portafilters, and adjustable espresso temperature, and it is available in both automatic and manual paddle models. Let’s just say your local barista will have a very high bar to reach when you next pay a visit.
