For many home baristas...
the La Marzocco GS3 MP carries a lot of weight. It's been around for quite awhile, and has created a reputation for being one of the most sought after home espresso machines on the market. Packed with big dual boilers, a stable PID controlled temperature system, a commercial grade rotary pump, and the piece de resistance, the pressure profiling paddle that gives the machine its name. Incase you were wondering the 'MP' stands for 'Manual Paddle'.
This mystique, combined with a love for all things La Marzocco, and the fear of missing out on all the fun of pressure profiling I decided to let go of my beloved Linea Mini and invest in a brand new GS3 MP early in 2022. A few months later it landed on my bar and took its rightful place as my main espresso machine.
Fast forward to today, and with 2022 about to end and a solid amount of time under my belt its time for my full review on the La Marzocco GS3 MP. So if you're curious how it lives up to its reputation hit play on the video above, and let's brew this!
