We are pleased to announce a slate of custom upgrades available from La Marzocco for their illustrious GS3 espresso machine. If you are interested in putting together an order, give us a call. The La Marzocco GS3 dramatically resets the gold standard for performance among all espresso machines.

In a surprisingly small footprint, with water reservoir or plumb-in options, the GS3 suits high-end home and office use and has sufficient steam power and performance for many commercial applications including restaurants, catering, and professional offices. The GS3’s 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 GS3 your own. We worked with a Portland craftsman to produce hand-made wood side panels for the GS3. The contour and lines of the panels precisely follow the stock side panels.


UPDATED CONICAL VALVE – The GS3 Paddle valve has been redesigned to improve reliability.

PUMP ON FULL RANGE PRESSURE MANIPULATION – The micro-switch for engaging the pump has been moved to the beginning of the brew cycle in order to create back pressure on the valve. This allows the user to manually manipulate brew pressure with a reservoir machine. No more need to plumb in the GS3 MP for pre-infusion. You are also able to manipulate the pressure in the full range of pressure from 0 to 9 bars.

PERISCOPE MANOMETER – A new manometer has been added that sits on top of the group head in order to measure the brew pressure at the point of brewing instead of in the boiler. This combined with the Pump On Pre-Infusion feature allows for manual pressure manipulation with a reservoir machine.

NEW COOL TOUCH STEAM WAND – The cool touch steam wand has changed to improve both convenience and steaming power.
