    We are pleased to announce a slate of custom upgrades available from La Marzocco for their illustrious GS/3 espresso machine. We will be offering machines with these handsome upgrades later this month. If you are interested in putting together an order, give us a call.

    The La Marzocco GS/3 dramatically resets the gold standard for performance among all espresso machines. Its performance meets and surpasses the finest high volume machines on the market today. In surprisingly small footprint, with water reservoir or plumb-in options, the GS3 suits high-end home use and has sufficient steam power and performance for many commercial applications including restaurants, catering, and professional offices.

    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.

    Custom Wood Panels

    Make the GS/3 your own with our custom wood panels. We worked with a Portland craftsman to produce custom, hand-made wood side panels for the GS/3. The contour and lines of the panels precisely follow the stock side panels. We have a variety of beautiful wood choices to pair with your machine. Our classic wood choices are walnut, figured maple, and mahogany, with limited options of wenge and bubinga. If you would like to supply your own wood for a perfect match with your kitchen, please contact us to sort out the details.

    Please note that as wood is a natural product it will have natural variations in the color and grain. We choose wood planks carefully to reflect the natural beauty of the wood. If you have any special requests for the wood chosen for your machine, give us a call.
