Offering advanced temperature stability and classic Italian style, the GB5 is one of La Marzocco's most coveted espresso machines. Built to their exacting standards in Florence, Italy, GB5 machines feature steel boilers with PID temperature control, saturated brew groups, and improved group caps that retain heat in the water path far better than before. This semi-automatic machine allows the barista to start and stop the shot manually, with shot timers built right into the LCD display. Portafilters made of stainless steel with precision 58 mm baskets come standard, and are fitted with rubber grips for barista comfort. The stainless steel body is adorned with La Marzocco's namesake lions, the symbol of their hometown of Florence.

The GB5 is designed to remain stable all day long, shot after shot, with precision temperature control thanks to the digital PID controller and a dynamic preheating system. With dual boilers, you can experience bountiful steam and rock-steady brewing temperatures even under high volume usage. Improved group caps cut down the water transition time from boiler to group, which also cuts down on heat loss in the brew path. Steam wands on both sides of the machine allow two baristas to work at once, and a hot water wand with adjustable water temperature can be used for americanos or teas as desired.

The GB5 is available in 2, 3, or 4 group configurations. Also available in AV, or auto-volumetric, for those who wish to have programmable shot volumes for each group.

For espresso machines with a 208-240v range, you will need a L6-30 locking plug. If you need one, be sure to add one on after clicking 'Add to cart' or grab one from your local hardware store.
