"How many boilers, exchangers and coffee beans have been held in our hands in almost fifty years. And it is with the same passion, energy and desire to do held by a a small group of people in 1969 that today we continue facing all the challenges posed everyday by the constantly growing coffee market."
The Storm coffee machine is a mix of craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology. With Storm, a barista is free to express himself/herself and his/her own experimentation skills through simple and comfortable actions.
The Storm coffee machine is search of values that were believed to have been lost to passing time, but were brought back to life thanks to a new cultural and craftsmanship approach that, in a short while, has propagated across the world. Delivered coffee is at the center of every concern. The baristas’ gestures are the protagonist of the scene and have highly symbolic value.
The relationship between who operates the coffee machine and who enjoys a cup of coffee is revolutionized: the barista who, with almost maniacal dedication, has chosen the grains, as well as the roasting and brewing steps can offer rituals of preparation and narration.
Total control of the manual dispensing
Storm is a competition machine that guarantees total control of the manual dispensing of mono-origin coffee and, at the same time, is suitable for use according to memorized brewing curves, which can enhance perfume and aromatic notes constantly.
Technique you can learn, but real passion is the sum of dedication and pride
The anti-scalding, cantilevered steam wand offers great safety and easy return movement to the drip tray, when the machine is idle. Super Dry is the innovative system that keep steam dry and with minimal initial condensation, guaranteed by a second heating spout which dissolves any condensation.
Since the moment of wand activation, performance can be extended even with two open steam wands, without any yield loss and with full pressure control.
Storm has taken into account the barista’s movement requirements and his/her need to operate the leverages to adjust coffee according to targeted taste and conception. The analog functions that enhance the customized brewing curves are also accompanied by digital storage functions of settings. Storm’s refined design is the result of a cooperation that Astoria has maintained for years with Adriano Design, a Turin based studio, which is one of the most important and renowned design studios in Italy, honored with the most prestigious national and international prizes such as the Compasso d’Oro international award.
Innovation and Practicality
The fully innovative suspended drip tray features a formal tray which supports the cup during brewing. Indeed, the cup is no longer hidden from the machine, but rests on a plate, as if it were a prima donna on stage. This design also produces practical effects because the drip tray, with its rounded lines, is easy to clean.
Customisable noble materials
Enhanced by wood accents which can be personalized with different wood types and stains, the Storm coffee machine arouses emotions and was built in tune with the most technologically accurate studies.
Storm is an easy to recognize machine with strong personality, raised on its feet but among the lowest in the category and to be placed on the counter to engender a front-line bartender-client relationship.
