Playing with the La Marzocco GS/3

We've been having a ton of good, clean (we swear!) fun with the La Marzocco GS/3 lately. A few weeks back, Gail pulled such a phenomenal shot from this machine and we wondered if she could reproduce it again. Watch as she works through the basic variables of dialing in a shot: Grind, tamp and temperature.

And for those who just love little upgrades here and there, checkout La Marzocco's version of the bottomless portafilter -- our favorite so far!
