La Marzocco GB5 S:

The GB5 S is an Auto Volumetrics Machine. It has a modernised design whilst maintaining the elegance that the GB5 is known for. The two red lilies on the side shields recall the company’s Florentine heritage while the front panel has been redesigned to increase group visibility. The GB5 S comes with saturated groups to give great thermal stability, shot after shot.

AV (Auto Volumetrics):

AV stands for Auto Volumetric. This means that the espresso shot is started by the barista, then your GB5 S espresso machine automatically pours a pre-programmed amount of water through the grouphead to reach the right amount of coffee that you need. The benefit of this is consistency and barista efficiency.

La Marzocco GB5 X:

The GB5 X can be identified from the GB5 S thanks to the white logos and lilies on its design. The GB5 X is a powerful machine with next-level technology and features to give an improved barista experience.

The GB5 X is an ABR (Auto Brew Ratio) machine. It has industry-leading temperature stability and hydraulic systems which give baristas maximum coffee consistency. Independent saturated boilers allow for different brewing temperatures for each grouphead, a hot water economiser means you can also set hot water temperature separately.

Pro-touch steam wands come as standard on this machine, these are cool to the touch and great for latte art.

ABR (Auto Brew Ratio):

The GB5 X espresso machine has precision scales built in to the drip tray to reach a preferred coffee weight. With the GB5 X espresso machine, the barista starts the shot and the machine automatically stops the shot when the programmed weight is achieved.

This is even more accurate than the AV version and the baristas we work with, love it.

Why we love the GB5

  • Dual boilers. Dual boilers are a more common feature in commercial machines, less so for domestic espresso machines. Separate boilers in the GB5 mean you have greater thermal stability (so more consistent coffee) and enhanced steam production - which is just what you need for some killer latte art.
  • Water Sensor. The innovative water sensory means baristas can monitor water quality and verify filtration performance without the need for additional testing tools - ultimately this results in more refined brew recipes, better tasting coffee and early detection when filters need replacing.
  • Iconic design. La Marzocco are espresso icons in the world of speciality coffee and have been designing espresso machines for 95 years. We love the classic designs of the GB5, an elegant nod to this incredible heritage.
