Product description

Elevate your coffee shop's performance with the La Marzocco GB5 X, a second-generation machine blending classical European design with cutting-edge functionality. Revamped visuals, a water sensor for quality monitoring, and Luminaire electronics bring this iconic espresso machine into the modern era.

Size and design
The GB5 X marries timeless elegance with contemporary aesthetics. This machine has white details instead of red ones like the GB5 S. So you will see white lilies, a white logo and white buttons. This machine has dimmable barista lights for customizable ambiance which allows you to focus on the extraction and cup.

Saturated groups
The GB5 X is equipped with saturated groups, ensuring thermal stability and precise temperature control for each espresso shot, resulting in consistent extraction. It provides a solid foundation for delivering rich, aromatic, and flavorful shots.

The machine is available in different configurations. The number of saturated groups is determined by the specific model you choose
2 groups
3 groups
4 groups

Separate saturated group boilers
The GB5 X has separate saturated group boilers. This means that each group head has its dedicated boiler, independently heating water to the optimal brewing temperature. This setup enhances temperature stability and precision during espresso extraction. By isolating the heating system for each group, baristas can ensure consistent brewing conditions across multiple espresso shots simultaneously.

This design minimizes temperature fluctuations, allowing for precise control over extraction parameters and ultimately resulting in superior espresso quality with rich flavor profiles and balanced extraction. Additionally, the separate boiler design enables faster recovery times between shots, making it ideal for high-volume coffee shops and demanding barista environments.

Brew system
The GB5 X features advanced pre-infusion, a ruby flow restrictor, and a performance touch steam wand for superior espresso extraction. Luminaire electronics provide precise control, contributing to an exceptional brewing experience. The easy-rebuild steam valve allows for hassle-free maintenance directly from the front of the machine.

PID controller
Enjoy dual PID control, allowing baristas to fine-tune both coffee and steam boiler temperatures. This level of control ensures optimal brewing conditions and flavor extraction for various coffee profiles. The machine also comes with 24v electronics for improved reliability and diagnostics.

Rotary pump
Equipped with a high-performance rotary pump, the GB5 X ensures quiet operation, longevity, and consistent pressure. This professional-grade pump upholds La Marzocco's standards for reliability and performance. The machine allows for easy firmware updates through the USB port.

Water sensor
The GB5 X is the first series of La Marzocco machines equipped with a water sensor. This sensor measures the conductivity and hardness of water as it enters the machine, and allows you to monitor water quality and verify filtration performance without the need for additional testing tools.

Pro touch steam wands
The machine features a double-walled, vacuum-sealed steam wand, delivering a proper temperature and force while remaining cool to the touch. Make velvety microfoam for lattes and cappuccinos with precision. The Pro Touch steam wands are high-performing and cool to the touch.

App integration
Stay connected with the La Marzocco Pro App, providing control over day-to-day functions. Adjust doses, coffee boiler temperature, and access usage statistics for enhanced customization.

The GB5 X comes in an Automatic-Volumetric (AV) version and an auto brew-ratio (ABR) version. 

The AV feature allows baristas to program the amount of time or volume an espresso shot receives. The machine automatically dispenses the desired amount of coffee.

The Auto-Volumetric with Scales (ABR) uses La Marzocco’s patented Auto Brew Ratio technology and scales built-in to the drip tray. Using this feature, baristas can brew each espresso shot by mass, volume, or brew ratio (for example, a 1:2 ratio with 19g of coffee in and 38g of liquid espresso out.)
