La Marzocco Home GS3 Espresso Machine

By Danny Mavromatis

Looking for the ultimate machine for the espresso lover in your life, and money is no object? The La Marzocco GS3 is the one to get. While the name might not be familiar outside the coffee world, La Marzocco has been the leader in espresso machine innovation since 1927. In fact, you've probably already experienced the amazing espresso shots, since La Marzocco machines are often found in coffee shops around the world. The GS3 is a professional-grade machine that has become the gold standard for home-espresso enthusiasts. The espresso shots pulled from the GS3 are comparable to, if not better than, the ones you get at your best local coffee joint because you control every aspect of the process -- the bean, grind, water quality, temperature, pressure and shot time. Handmade in Florence, Italy, the GS3 is a machine that will be handed down for generations.
