    I’ve kept upgrading my coffee machines over the years; starting from a humble $130 Krups to a Nespresso (I know, what was I thinking???), Rancilio Silvia, then to a Giotto and finally to a GS/3.

    Having used extensively both the first and second generation Synessos at work, I have come to believe that they are possibly one of the best machines around. I was tempted by a 5 Senses rep to get a 1 group Synesso for home but I thought it was a bit of an overkill and decided to “settle” for the GS/3.

    How wrong was I! The GS/3 produces a much more consistent cup. Over the months of using it everyday, and playing around with the same blends (as a comparison) through the Synessos, I have noticed that the shots produced through a GS/3 were more balanced and “refined” if that makes sense. Notes were more pronounced and the espressos were clearly tastier. They were also extremely consistent shot after shot. So then I thought I had made the right decision to choose the GS/3.

    Recently, I was asked to operate a coffee cart at an event. The organiser said that they expected maybe 150 to 200 coffees so I thought the GS/3 should be able to handle it although it might struggle during the peak periods. Armed with a mate’s Kony-E, I dialed in the grinder and pulled some shots just before the event started. Going from a flat burr (used at home), to a conical burr grinder made all the difference. Just when I thought my coffee couldn’t get any better!

    That’s not all, at the end of the event we pumped a whopping 8kgs of coffee though the GS/3, so that’s approximately 350 to 400 cups. I reckon we would have been able to make almost 10kgs except that we ran out of takeaway cups. We thought we were organised and had brought 5kgs of coffee which would have been more than enough but had to run out to buy some extra bags from a cafe nearby. I still can’t believe we made that many coffees on a single group!

    The GS/3 was a workhorse. It did not skip a beat although the steam pressure did drop slightly (only a bit on the pressure gauge) during some of the hectic periods but we were still able to push the coffees out. Shot after shot, there wasn’t anything stopping it.

    Is the GS/3 too much for a home machine? Possibly yes, but hey at least you know you’ll get a quality cup all the time or if you ever need to make some 400 cups of coffee in a go, you know you can!
