Allow me to introduce you to the peak of home espresso machines. The pinnacle. The point at which if you went farther you’d be going downhill on the other side. Let me introduce you to the La Marzocco Gs/3 home espresso machine. Handmade in Florence Italy, the machine sports a dual boiler setup with PID temperature control (whatever that stands for) that allows it to have very fine and stable control on the water temperature. What will this beautiful machine set you back? A cool $7500. Since you probably can’t afford one (hey I’m not judging), you can still go to Four Barrel Coffee in SF where I saw it. They have a separate stand from the rest of the bar, that will make you a single shot using the machine and single origin beans.
