Description

The GS3 MP from La Marzocco delivers the power to handle a cafe or coffee shop and brings it to your home. Brewing is controlled by a mechanical paddle that moves from right to left, starting with a soft pre-infusion and ramping up in pressure as the paddle comes to a stop. Extraction pressure is measured by the periscope pressure gauge built into the saturated group. The GS3’s group works in tandem with dual stainless steel boilers (3.5 L for the steam boiler, and 1.3 L for the brew boiler) monitored by a digital PID controller for the ultimate thermal stability system, shot after shot. Ruby flow restrictors help the GS3 to resist scale build-up and erosion for mitigated maintenance needs.

Coffee

Design

To the left of the brew group are two pressure gauges – the far left pressure gauge shows the pressure in the brew boiler, and the gauge closer to the brew group shows the pressure in the steam boiler. Above these gauges is the steam wand, and below them is the steam activation lever.

To the right of the brew group is the digital display with clock and below the display is the keypad. This is also where you find the hot water dispenser and hot water lever. They keypad has icons, so you can remember which button does which.

Brewing

The machine is heated to proper brewing temperature when the keypad buttons are backlit. Before brewing, it’s a good idea to run some hot water through the portafilter. This warms the portafilter to brewing temperature, so your espresso is brewed at a consistent temperature. Add grounds to the portafilter, insert the portafilter into the group head, and slowly move the mechanical paddle from right to left to begin brewing. When brewing, the brew boiler pressure gauge should read about 9 bars. Programming Options and Recommendations

The La Marzocco GS3 offers two programming menus – “machine on” programming and “machine off” programming. “Machine on” programming controls your preferences for espresso, such as the brewing and steaming temperature, digital clock adjustments, automatic on/off, and more. “Machine off” programming controls the actual GS3’s performance, and it is not recommended that you adjust these settings, such as the boiler temperatures, language, temperature measurement units, water filter alarm, and more. To enter in the “machine on” programming mode, press and hold the programming button while the GS3 is turned on. To enter into the “machine off” programming mode, turn the machine off and then press and hold the programming button.

Cup Warmer

The cup tray on top of the machine acts as a storage space for your cups, as well as heats them using residual heat from the boiler. Pre-heating your cups before brewing preserves the temperature of the espresso for longer.

Frothing and Hot Water

Steaming

To begin steaming milk or other liquids, press the steam activation lever, and when you’re done steaming, return it to the “off” position. The GS3 has a boiler just for steaming, so you can brew and steam simultaneously. Remember to run a little water through the steam wand once you’re done, and wipe off the wand with a damp cloth to prevent milk residue buildup.

Hot Water

To dispense hot water, press the tea button on the control panel. Hot water will begin flowing from the hot water tap on the right side of the machine. To stop dispensing, simply press the button again once you’re satisfied.

Care, Maintenance & Other

Water Reservoir

The La Marzocco is plumbable, which means that you can connect it directly to your home’s water supply. Home users, however, may find it more convenient to use the water reservoir, which holds nearly 120 oz of water. About once a month, rinse and clean the water reservoir with warm soapy water or in the dishwasher to keep your coffee tasting fresh.

Preventative Cleaning

Depending on how often you use your machine, there are certain cleaning steps you’ll need to take. The shower screen, filter baskets, and portafilter can be removed and soaked in detergent and hot water for up to a half hour. Use the blind filter basket to back flush when needed – back flushing sends cleaning solution backwards through the brew group, cleaning out coffee residue and oils. When the drip tray fills, you can remove and rinse it out. Since the GS3 has a stainless steel exterior, it can be wiped clean with a damp cloth to keep it looking new. If the steam wand has milk residue that doesn’t come off with a damp cloth, soak it in hot water to remove the residue.

Accessories

The La Marzocco GS3 comes with a single spout portafilter, double spout portafilter, blind filter basket, single shot filter basket, double shot filter basket, tamper, cleaning solution, plumbing kit, and a detailed user manual.
