La Marzocco Home Espresso Machines
Groundbreaking patents and new coffee experiences
The Italian brand La Marzocco, founded in Florence in 1927, has throughout its history played a crucial role in how espresso culture looks today. The badge is named after Florence’s coat of arms: a triumphant lion with a Florentine lily. Giuseppe Bambi’s pioneering inventions have become exemplary standards in quality machinery: from the horizontal dual boiler as from the 1930s, the baristas allowed the temperature to be controlled respectively. the brew and steam, to the world’s first automated electric machine in the 1950s with the iconic paddle, which incidentally introduced “crema” to our coffee vocabulary. La Marzocco has been the first on the market many times, and may well be awarded the title of espresso machine gentleman. All machines are still handmade at the factory in Florence.
At Spinchy we sell La Marzocco Home machines: GS3 AV and MP and Linea Mini.
The GS3 AV is a professional class espressomachine home use. It is for the user who wants a more simple and uniform, yet superb brewing process. The GS3 has the thermal stability system used in La Marzocco Strada, including a preheating system, a digital PID controller, saturated groups, a double boiler system and digital display. The GS3 is among the best home machines on the market and offers endless possibilities for refining brewing. The boilers are built in stainless steel, and the large boiler capacity makes it superior even in pressured situations.
The machine’s modern timeless design and user-friendly layout make it beautiful to look at. It’s easy to use for even the less experienced home barista. It is customized to order with different glass / wood elements. The GS3 AV is equipped with volumetric control, which allows the user to easily achieve the same custom volume over and over with great uniformity. The hot water outlet can be temperature adjusted to suit your personal preference. The machine can either work with filling or a fixed water supply / drain.
The GS3 MP is for the user who wants full control over the brewing process. The barista benefits from the variable water speed and pump pressure. The GS3 MP is built in steel with black side panels, but can be customized to order with different glass / wood elements. The machine is equipped with a manual paddle that allows the user to work with pressure profiling in real time during the actual brew. The disc at the top of the group shows the actual pressure in the group head. It can easily be manipulated by pushing the paddle to the right or left. The paddle handles both the water velocity and ultimately the pump pressure that is monitored at the top of the group head. This gives you the opportunity to work with pre-infusion.

This allows the machine to achieve temperature stability and energy efficiency as a saturated brew group, simply in a reduced footprint. The Linea Mini is handmade with the same components used in the commercial machines. The boilers are built in stainless steel. The large boiler capacity makes it superior even in pressured situations. The Linea Mini is built with a rotary pump and equipped with a brew paddle for activation of brew with built-in pre-infusion. The user can easily adjust the brew temperature and enjoy an illuminated drip tray area for better vision in subdued environments.
