Since 2015, our mission at La Marzocco Home has been to provide professional equipment and education to the home barista. As a team, we’re constantly looking for ways to make brewing espresso at home more enjoyable, and sharing those techniques with the home barista community.

We’re excited to take that promise one step further.  Introducing an all-new “connected machine” feature for the Linea Mini and GS3. This new feature will allow machine owners to connect to their machines via the new La Marzocco Home App.

Using the app, home baristas will have the ability to engage with a variety of features on their machine, including:

– Remote ability to turn the machine on or off

– Creation of an on/off schedule

– Boiler temperature status and control

– Enabling and setting pre-brewing on/off times

– Machine Stats & Total Shot Counter

– Setting of auto-volumetrics on the GS3 by number of “pulses”

 

Available on App Store.                                             Available on Google Play.

 

 

 

The app will also come pre-loaded with tutorials and educational posts to dive even further into home espresso education.

All Linea Mini machines purchased in 2019 will require a retro fit board to be connectable. Please contact us for more information re pricing and availability.

If you purchased your Linea Mini in 2020 please contact us to see if your Mini is connectable or will require a retro fit.

Gs3 AV with serial numbers starting with GS012995 and Gs3 MP with serial numbers starting with GS013010 come standard with the new connectable board.

All Gs3 with serial numbers prior to these will require the retro fit board, please contact us for more information.

 

The app is available for download today. Scroll below for links to download, instructions, and more information on the App’s features.
