Steam Wand

During the morning rush, steamed and frothed milk is always in high demand. The La Marzocco GB/5’s stainless steel steam wands are ball joint-mounted, allowing them to move in any direction for easy access with large frothing pitchers and cups. For less experienced baristas or those just looking for the ease of letting the machine do it all, the wands can be replaced with an auto-frothier.

PID Control

The La Marzocco’s Proportional Integrated Derivative (PID) temperature control provides consistent temperature between shots. This techology senses temperature fluxuation in the boiler, and pulses the heating element to maintain the set temperature within ½oC at all times. You can change the temperature with the easy-to-use digital display, meaning those of all experience levels can customize brewing temperatures to get the best flavor from their coffee.

Programming Options

Though the GB/5 semi-automatic features manual brewing, steaming and hot water functions, it features several advanced programming options to customize your extraction. A built-in adjustable thermostat allows you to select your preferred temperature setting for both brewing and steaming, and the GB/5 can also be switched from “Barista Level” programming to “Factory Level” programming to provide more technical settings for users. The Factory level offers a range of choices for technicians and advanced users, such as password protection, user name input, pre-infusion adjustments, a water filtration alarm, steam boiler pressure regulation and more.

Saturated Brew Groups

The GB/5’s excellent temperature stability can be attributed to its saturated brew groups that are welded directly to the boiler. Hot water is circulated through each brew group’s stainless steel components, ensuring that your espresso is brewed at whatever temperature you have chosen for ideal taste and crema.

Back Up Devices

A broken espresso machine in a busy café means lost revenue and unhappy customers. The La Marzocco lets you avoid these situations with back up devices that allow you to keep on brewing—even while a technician is testing or servicing many of the machine’s primary functions.

Stainless Steel Cup Warmer

You’ll never have to brew into cold cups because the GB/5 has an extra-large stainless steel cup warmer. That means you’ll always have heated cups on hand and your carefully maintained boiler temperature will never go to waste.

Electrical Options

Accommodating any environment, the GB/5 is available in a 200v (1 or 3 phase), 220v (1 or 3 phase), or 380v (3 phase) model. You can also choose between standard wattage and high wattage elements.
