La Marzocco Parts | Commercial Espresso Machine Parts

Chris' Price: $225.00

Product Code: SA309-2


This La Marzocco part is an upgrade to the steam arm assembly that comes standard on the La Marzocco GS3. It gives you better steaming performance, releasing a drier steam when making milk-based drinks.

If you purchase this assembly with a GS3, we will install it free of charge. If you purchase it separately, we supply a complete installation instructions including images.

Called for advice - spoke to an actual person! July 11, 2016
Reviewer: Paul Ascenzo from New York, NY United States  
Love this upgrade! I didn't know how much the 'cool touch' assembly that my Marzocco came with was holding me back. The result was felt immediately on my first shot after the upgrade.

I would recommend watching the video they produced online (I just searched on YouTube) and following their excellent pdf instructions on their site. Get all your ducks in order before beginning, including tools and extra parts as needed.

I don't do this type of thing often, but I felt confident after doing a lot of research (including speaking with a Chris Coffee tech). One aspect was as tricky as was reported (bending the copper tubing to fit correctly), but I hung in there and finally got it. No leaks, and great microfoam.

As usual, Chris Coffee is the best. Over the years, I have had nothing but excellent service and great advice. The tech person I spoke to was very knowledgable and helpful to me. This type of service is priceless, and all too rare. Thank you!!

Steam arm works fine April 24, 2016
Reviewer: Vince Duperron from Los Gatos, CA United States  
Purchased as part of a GS3 purchase.  Chris Coffee performed the upgrade so the machine arrived already upgraded.  Steam wand works as advertised.  

Chris Coffee is always a pleasure to work with and this transaction was no exception.

GS3 Steam Arm January 11, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Boston  
Highly recommend this upgrade.  Produces much drier steam than the stock arm.  Worth every penny. Have it installed at purchase time and save yourself a LOT of time.  It requires a little mechanical skill to install yourself, and risks damaging your new GS3 if you do it yourself.

Sure the wand/arm gets hot, but that's what makes the steam dry.  The instructions may vary a little from exactly how your machine was manufactured, but close enough.
