WBC Champion Stephen Morrissey, USBC Champion Michael Phillips, and David Latourell were there to pull shots from two classic semi-auto La Marzocco Lineas and to provide entertainment.

GQ Ranks Top Cafes

GQ magazine showcases the top 10 places to get your daily fix in the U.S.

GQ magazine showcases the top 10 places to get your daily fix in the U.S.

In “The Most Important Drink of Your Day“, GQ magazine hits home with the point that, “why pay $4.79 for a watery latte that was lovelessly made on a push-button machine that could be safely operated by a 4 year old?” (They’re referring to a superautomatic espresso machine, by the way)

In the “Golden Age of Coffee” (as they call it) that we now live in, “there’s now a wealth of coffee in America so rich and flavorful it’ll remind you why you originally fell in love with the stuff.”

Other than killer coffee and quality, what else do these featured coffee roasters have in common? They’re all customers of La Marzocco, of course.
