Astoria Plus 4 You 2 Group Automatic Espresso Machine
Astoria's flagship machine incorporates technical care and control with their new smart, energy efficient software. The Astoria Plus 4 You, available in this new style, dedicates individual boilers to each grouphead, in addition to sporting an oversized steam boiler. The temperature of the steam boiler, coffee water reservoir, and groupheads can be set individually via a digital control panel. The Plus 4 You is also the first espresso machine in Astoria's "Green Line," and can save the shop up to 47% in energy costs. With patented software, the machine learns the work load requirements of various times of the day and week and uses that information to activate functions only when and where they are needed.
Green TechnologyAs the first machine in Astoria's Green Line, the Plus 4 You can save the owner up to 47% on energy costs. This is accomplished through their newly developed software that learns peak times and regulates power distribution throughout the day as needed.
Temperature Stability and ControlThe Plus 4 You features a separate coffee boiler per group head. The temperature of each group is controlled independently through the digital control panel. The electronic temperature control for each group provides precise temperature stability with a maxiumum temperature variance of 1°C. The temperature can be controlled for the steam boiler, water reservoir for the coffee, and the individual groupheads.
Smart TechnologyAstoria's Green Technology learns the peak performance times during the day and the week, in turn using this information to put one or multiple groups on standbye during non-peak hours. The Astoria Plus 4 You also features a self-diagnostic system which helps the barista identify errors in coffee extraction. If a shot is not extracted properly, the machine will show the barista a simple message recommending a fix.
Digital DisplayThe Plus 4 You features a multi-functional control panel for guided navigation in the display menus. The display helps you track the status of the machine and features: a counter for the number of shots pulled for each serving size, diagnostic messages for easier service, settings for manual or automatic energy savings, notice of required water softening, and the control of machine parameters.

Compak is a company dedicated to quality and craft. Their newest endeavor is a line of espresso grinders that raises the bar on control and efficiency. Aptly named "Fresh" for its innovative design and functionality, these grinders were created from conversations with baristas around the world and from the experience of a company that has been around for over 50 years. The K-10 Fresh offers a number of innovative features including: the ability to pre-set the the dosing time for a single and double shot to within a tenth of a second, manual push-button doser that keeps time of amount dosed on the digital display, and a completely new dosing system, electronics and control system. Also, the electronic display shows the selected grinding point, a configurable warning to change the burrs, promotional message with your logo, shot counter, and multi-language display.
$1,687.00(For a guest barista review, click here.) Anfim's Super Caimano espresso grinder, upon its initial release, was a solid addition to any high-end coffee house. It featured a 75mm flat burr set that helped to give a very consistent grind, allowing baristas to rely upon it for excellent shot-to-shot uniformity. When dialing in a coffee, the Super Caimano had 70 holes in its adjustment collar to allow for tinkering between shots. Now, however, Anfim has added an additional 20 spots for a total of 90 holes in the adjustment collar. The benefit of this? When dialing in and finding the sweet spot for any coffee being used to pull shots of espresso, a key factor the barista must take into consideration is the size of the grind particles. Yes, uniformity and consistency of those grind particles is also key, but the ability to make tiny, incremental adjustments is always helpful when striving to find the right balance of all a coffee's characteristics when pulled as espresso.
