Astoria Divina 1 Group Automatic Espresso Machine
The Astoria Divina is a single group head machine built to perform in a commercial environment. Astoria doesn't skimp on quality with the Divina including two high-end features that are rare on a commercial machine at this price point. The Divina features a thermocompensated group head as well as pre-infusion. These features help the barista pull evenly extracted shots at stable brewing temperatures. The Divina is a single group machine built for a low-volume cafe or coffee shop focused on quality.
The Divina features an 6.6 Liter Boiler that employs a Heat Exchanger. This allows the barista to brew coffee and steam milk at the same time. The use of a Heat Exchanger also allows Astoria to go with a smaller footprint on the Divina (20"x21."x22.5"), helping free up valuable counter space.
Thermocompensated Group Head with Preinfusion Technology
The Divina helps ensure that your espresso is extracting at a stable temperature with it's thermocompensated group head. The Divina also features pre-infusion technology which softly exposes the coffee puck to low-pressure water before extracting at full pressure. This helps ensure less channeling and provides a more even extraction.

$53.00Hario's stainless steel water kettle, the V60 Buono, has been spotted popping up in coffee houses and the kitchens of baristas for some time now. A detailed search on the web will reveal, for the moment at least, that the Buono seems to be widely accepted as the most useful pouring kettle available. What makes this kettle so popular amongst pour-over enthusiasts? Several reasons stand out.
First, the thin pouring spout enables greater pouring precision as well as a slower, more consistent and controlled rate of pour, both of which are very helpful in achieving a precise, prolonged extraction.
Second, the stainless steel construction and large 1 liter capacity contribute toward keeping up the brew temperature for the duration of the entire brew cycle.
Third, the ergonomics involved in the design of the kettle help to make using it much easier. This may not seem like much, but if you're brewing large batches of coffee and pouring for three or more minutes per batch, doing several batches of coffee will quickly become a chore if your kettle doesn't cooperate with you.
Combine all of these facets with the fact that the Buono is manufactured by Hario, a very popular name in the coffee-brewing community, and the kettle's popularity is easily understood. For best results, combine the Buono with a V60 Dripper or Chemex to get a truly exceptional cup of coffee.
Few advancements in espresso machine technology over the past fifty years could be called revolutionary. The latest advancement featured in La Marzocco's Strada Electronic Paddle (EP) is one that has earned that title. Pressure profiling was first introduced into the mass market in 2009 by the Slayer Espresso Machine. The La Marzocco Strada takes this new technology to the next level by allowing the barista to save up to four pressure profiles at any given time. Along with the ability to save profiles, each group has a digital display that shows the temperature (±0.1°C), shot time, and current bars of pressure (±.1 Bar). The Strada perfectly combines the durability and workmanship of La Marzocco with the technology of the future.
$48.62Tampers are as diverse as the baristas who use them. Our new tamper meets the needs of almost any barista, whether professionally trained or newly beginning. With its durable aluminum handle and wide, smooth top, the tamper is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably into the palm unlike other overly rounded handles which can press a little too tightly into the hand of the barista, or flat topped handles which can become uncomfortable after extended use.
The base of the Prima tamper is of a hefty 304 stainless steel design. This solid steel base combined with the light, detachable aluminum handle adds balanced weight to the tamper which helps aid the barista in providing an even tamp, shot after shot.
