La Marzocco is in a league of its own when it comes to the functionality, style and available customization of its commercial machines. And the GB/5 is no exception. This well-designed commercial espresso machine produces high quality and consistent espresso. The GB/5 is the perfect size for a small to mid-sized cafe with light to moderate traffic.
- Double Boiler: Eliminate inconsistency while also speeding things up with this double boiler machine, capable of extracting espresso and steaming milk at the same time with very little temperature variance.
- Personal Preference: Select from a variety of models: automatic (AV), semi-automatic (EE), and mechanical paddle (MP).
- Articulating Steam Wand: The steam wands on the GB/5 can easily be moved into multiple directions on its pivot base, which allows baristas to steam and froth milk to their preference.
- Hot Water Dispenser: Make tea or hot cocoa on the fly with the GB/5's quick dispensing hot water nozzle.
- Installed PID: The GB/5 features a PID for complete temperature control, making it even easier to customize your drinks for those customers with decisive palates.
- Cup Warmer: The top of the GB/5 functions wonderfully as a cup warmer, drawing heat directly from the boilers to the stainless steel top.
- Dual Steam Wands: We like to use these for latte art competitions around the office, but they also serve wonderfully in busy settings where multiple drinks need to be made at once.
- Saturated Groups: With brew heads connected directly to the boiler, this feature will ensure thermal stability for every shot produced.
- Direct Water Line: Once you get this machine all plumbed in, never worry about running out of water mid-shot with automatic refilling directly from your water line.
- Professional Quality Espresso: The GB/5 is designed with consistency and quality in mind, as in order to keep the customers coming back for more, you have to make sure your coffee is top notch
- High Capacity: Keep the long lines at bay with a machine capable of churning out shots faster than customers can order them
- Perfect Steam: Lattes and cappuccinos have never been easier, as the steam functionality on the GB/5 is both fast and consistent
- Difficult Setup: This, along with most commercial machines, is not something you just pull out of the box and are good to go. There is quite a bit of setting up, adjusting settings, getting the correct plumbing, etc. to consider before pulling your first shot
