La Marzocco were a integral part of a recent episode of Channel 5’s ‘The Gadget Show. Filmed on sunny Brighton Beach, hosts Ortis and Jon were pitted against UK Barista Champion Dan Fellows from Origin Coffee Roasters in their own barista competition. 

The idea behind this competition was who makes the better barista; Man or Machine? In the show, you can see Ortis and Jon using the best La Marzocco design and innovations to attempt to beat the years of experience that Dan has accumulated on the competition circuit. Using a Linea PB with Auto Brew Ratio and a Vulcano Swift, the guys seek out to find if such technological advancements come out on top against Dan who uses completely manual equipment such as the Linea Mini.
