Location: Susegana, Italy
A group of artisans who launched an idea in 1969 has now transformed into the largest single coffee machine factory in the world. Here are the main milestones that have made Astoria the best-known and most popular brand today.
Astoria was born and grew up in the hills of Susegana, a small town in the province of Treviso. It is part of a network of partners that, for the most part, are available at 0 Km. The production of most of the models takes place right here, in the CMA plant, which in 2007 was upgraded in terms of space and production capacity.
“Great innovations take place when people are not afraid to do something different.” From the first coffee machine introduced in the market to the present, technological improvement has been truly astounding. Indeed, Astoria is buttressed by a cutting-edge Research and Development Department, which works every day with passion and method, putting baristas’ needs at the core.
Plus4Champions is the official machine at the World Latte Art Championship (WLAC) and the World Coffee in Good Spirits Championship (WCIGS) 2015, 2016, 2017.
In 2017, Storm is the new coffee machine that sanctions Astoria's official entry into the world of professional baristas, launched on the occasion of Host Milano. Presence on a European level is also further consolidated with the opening of a branch in Russia.
