Astoria are taking the world by Storm with their new machine
Say hello to Storm, the new Astoria coffee machine designed to meet the needs of the most experienced and enthusiastic baristas. The machine concept was developed synergistically with technicians and designers, built to encourage baristas to experiment through simple and comfortable actions.
Storm is a machine in which every detail is the result of research and passion. Designed to enhance and facilitate the ritual of coffee making, it begs to be used creatively.
With Storm, baristas have the ability to customize and control their work through storing brewing curves, pre-infusion control, extraction speed, and temperature control. And let’s not forget the “cold touch” Barista Attitude steam wand; a dry steam wand which affords baristas a remarkably fluid movement range, and minimizes initial condensation resulting in an easier milk foaming experience.
Storm’s design is intended to be function, with its height being optimized to allow eye contact between baristas and customers can be maintained. But let’s not overlook the fact that it is also stunning. Using a range of beautiful materials including wood, stainless steel and aluminum, Storm not only looks great, it is also strategically built with the barista and customer in mind.
