New La Marzocco GB/5 in Santa Barbara (thanks to Verve Coffee Roasters):
New GB/5 serial number 2561’s home is on the bar at The French Press in Santa Barbara, California. Since its birth in Florence, “Roberto” (GB/5 #2561) knew greatness was instore… During it’s long sea voyage Roberto wondered what its future may hold, little did it know it would be called upon to bring specialty coffee to the entire city of Santa Barbara. After arriving in America and taking many long truck trips, Roberto had his box uncovered to find himself on sunny State Street in Santa Barbara. Now he is happy and shiny, making macchiatos in the sunshine. Roberto would like to thank the fine people at La Marzocco USA, Verve Coffee Roasters, and The French Press for letting him juice the finest beans in high style!
