Storm is a blend of craftsmanship and high technology.
Thanks to Storm, baristas are free to express themselves and explore their capacity for experimentation through simple and comfortable actions.
Storm is research on values that have been lost over time but re-emerged thanks to a new cultural and artisanal approach, which spread rapidly in the world. The coffee dispensed is at the center of every care. Baristas’ gestures the protagonists on stage and have a highly symbolic value. The relationship between those who operate the machine and who savor coffee is revolutionized: the barista who has chosen coffee beans, roasting and brewing with an almost maniacal dedication can offer ritual preparation and storytelling.
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.
For baristas, the machine ergonomics are never just a detail.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.
