What is it?
The La Marzocco GS3 Manual Paddle is a dual boiler espresso machine with a saturated group head, PID temperature control, shot timer, volumetric shot dosing, and a rotary pump that can be direct plumbed or run on its internal reservoir. It features a paddle that allows you to directly control flow rate while pulling a shot.
Who is it for?
The GS3 MP is for those who want to explore every possible flavor coffee has to offer and treat every shot as a unique experience worth savoring. Testing the bounds of ratio, temperature, and shot time with long pre-infusions and bell-curve like flow profiles. At the same time, you want to be able to pull that quick volumetric shot in the morning, or serve a dinner party with ease, making it look all too easy.
Why do we carry it?
The GS3 set the bar for excellence in prosumer machines when it was first released in 2008. The additon of the manual paddle which controls the flow rate of water to the group head turns the GS3 MP into a beast of its own, capable of espresso sorcery that few machines can match. That alongside the GS3's already robust set of features, power, and good looks mean that you're in for a truly one-of-a-kind experience that opens new possibilities with every single origin coffee and every shot of espresso.
