Machina product intro:

We're extremely proud to distribute La Marzocco, who we consider to be make the best espresso machines in the world. Pioneers of the espresso world, La Marzocco produce equipment that is elegant, stylish, timeless, exceptionally well built and above all - are extremely reliable. You can buy fancier, flashier machines with the latest features and lots of lights, but we have learnt through experience that when you invest in a good espresso machine, you buy functional, quality equipment that's built to last.

There's a reason why La Marzocco is the most popular brand in the market - they are tried, tested and they deliver. We use their machines in all our locations and they never miss a beat.

This is the MP (mechanical paddle) version of the GB5, available in 2, 3 & 4 group models. With an electronic paddle on each group, it's perfect for settings where baristas require extra control over the extraction process, through manual pre-infusion.

Mechanical Paddle:

By controlling the flow of water and pressure mechanically via an internal valve, you can reproduce the superior cup quality that has traditionally been attained with "lever" machines. Manual pre-infusion allows you to bring out different flavour components which affect the balance and body of the shot, and produce a rounder, softer espresso that highlights brightness, sweetness and delicate notes.
