Everyday, for more than two
centuries, coffee has been landing
in the heart of Europe, in Trieste,
a city suspended in time and space,
a natural hub between East and West,
a meeting point of intercontinental
maritime routes and the AdriaticBaltic and Mediterranean corridors.
Trieste boasts a history of landings
and trades permitted by its free
port status awarded to it back in
the eighteenth century. Trieste
is coffee culture. Trieste is a
multitude of daily rites and myths.
Inspiration, style and love for
anything good start here.

The Old Port of Trieste, built in the second half
of the nineteenth century is a splendid specimen
of industrial and commerce archeology. It bears
witness to a city indebted to its Habsburg past,
yet culturally projected towards the future, and
endows the major shipping companies with
oceanic routes to and from China, India and the
rest of the Far East.

High quality coffees, special coffees and traceable coffees whose
history is known up to the last
detail. And all of them are enhanced by total monitoring during the
brewing process.
It is layered knowledge over
time that transforms into energy
and aroma the red drupes yielded
by the bare Ethiopian plateau. Each
berry encapsulates the multiform and
elusive soul of regions where plants
grow: Brazil, Vietnam, Colombia,
Indonesia,
Mexico,
Guatemala,
Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador,
India, Ecuador ... Errant beans that
man knows how to conquer, capturing
its identity, grace and strength, in
a game that swings between chemistry
and art, between aesthetics and
creative genius and between culture
and lifestyle.

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. Indeed, the Storm model 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 frontline bartender-client relationship.

“The most challenging aspect of Latte
Art is to create a precise model that
is the fruit of imagination. I love to
design, and, therefore, being able to
shape my creativity thanks to Storm’s
performance is great! Being able to
leverage the quality of its dry steam is
fundamental for great results!”
Aussie Caleb Cha, nicknamed
Tiger, won the 2015 Latte Art World
Championships in Gothenburg, Sweden,
supported by Melbourne’s Cafenatics, his place of employment. Caleb
impressed the judges with his intricate colorful butterfly design,
followed by two models, the Flirting
Peacock and the Caffeinated Zebra,
completely new shapes compared to
the usual swans, tulips and roses.

The Storm features Super Dry,
innovative technology that keeps
steam “dry” by means of two
heating spouts. The advanced system
guarantees performance stability,
even for prolonged periods of time,
without any yield loss.

“Since I started working as
a barista, I have been committed to
finding new designs, each single day.
This is the fun part! I’ve traveled to
more than thirty countries to explore
coffee culture in the world: a barista

Regardless of the counter space, the
Storm machine allows using the 180°
rotating steam wand. By adjusting
the basin, baristas can keep the cup
at the most appropriate level.
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.
It 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.

A top quality coffee is not just a
coffee without defects; it is a cup of coffee
that brings out its inherent distinctive
personality. It is the ability to choose
the plantation and the particular botanical
variety in a specific place in the world.
It is utmost attention dedicated to the
harvesting and processing of each grain.
It is the challenge of fresh and expert
roasting that can develop the coffee’s full
aromatic potential. It is the ability, on
the bartender’s part, to decide on the right
coffee/water ratio, grain size, ideal water,
temperature and contact time... It is a coffee that has to be told because it
is always a result of an immersive experience.

The Storm coffee machine is
a mix of craftsmanship and cuttingedge technology. With it, a barista
is free to express himself/herself
and his/her own experimentation
skills through simple and comfortable
actions. 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.
The fully innovative suspended basin
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 basin, with its
rounded lines, is easy to clean.

The side/rear panel is mechanically
connected by screws embedded in the
frame; the removal of side panels is
simplified, which makes access to
the Storm’s internal parts easier.
The electronic control unit can be

The tilting compartment allows
accessing
the
electrical
and
electronic components of the power
supply system directly from the
heater cover front panel, without
any need to remove parts from the

The Barista Attitude 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.

The loading and unloading hoses and
feed inputs are connected within a
cylindrical structure that makes
the visible part of the machine more
elegant and neat. As a result, cables
and hoses are directly connected to
the hole on the counter, avoiding
the exposure of cables typical of
raised machines.
The structure also includes two
lateral holes for the passage and
insertion of the grinders’ power
feed.

Storm rests on treated oak wood
supports that ensure durability and
cleanliness.
The feet are made of polished
stainless steel, and fitted with
single (10mm) front and rear
adjustment to ensure that Storm
perfectly rests on the counter.

In the FRC version, the brewing curve is handled
through a manual drive paddle placed next to the group,
controlled by the barista.
All brewing peculiarities are at the barista’s
discretion; Storm allows customizing each cup according
to his/her needs.
It is possible to set the display curve by relying
on five parameters; changing one or more parameters
can change the organoleptic features of the coffee
being prepared. The brewing curve can be independently
programmed, both between groups and with each cup.
H
1. Quantity of pre-infused water: the ideal amount of
water will be released by entering the amount of grams
in the filter holder.
2. Pre-infusion time: the greater the value set, the
shorter the pre-infusion time, which also determines
the actual rate during coffee making.
3. Value that changes the brewing curve: the higher the
value, the higher the delivery rate.
4. Amounts in milliliters with which the pressure can
be changed during coffee making, reaching the minimum
value to ensure a perfect cup of coffee.
5. The extraction rate changes during brewing until
reaching the minimum value to ensure a perfect cup of
coffee; the higher the value, the quicker the drop.

machines. Thanks to innovative software
that manages the standby automatic system
during breaks, night-time energy-saving
function and intelligent temperature
regulation, Storm distributes power only
where and when needed. In addition, Storm
automatically puts one or more groups into
standby mode when the workload decreases,
reverting to full-time mode as warranted
by circumstances.
* Datum certified by Intertek - ETL SEMKO,
an independent body dealing with safety
testing and product certification.
The group cover houses a 5” display
and an electromechanical competition
key that, once positioned exactly
above the filter holder, allows its
coupling and manual start-up in a
single movement.
By acting on the hidden screw, it
is easy to remove the crankcase for
maintenance work on it and on the
display.

Storm is equipped with the SB (Steam Boost)
option, which can be activated by the
technician during installation or is available
in the Extreme Steam Boost version, which can
maximize the efficiency of steam production,
as needed.
SB increases steam production by activating
the heating units even during high-volume
espresso making (alternating power between
service and coffee heating units).
In the ESB version, however, steam production
is maximum, all heating units on Storm can
be activated at the same time, minimizing
the recovery time of the machine (maximum
absorbed power for 2GR 5800/6315 W/h and 3GR
7333/7985 W/h).
