Astoria Perla AEP Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine | 1, 2, or 3 Groups
Astoria’s Perla brings together convenience, affordability, and ease-of-use into one espresso machine. It’s available as a 1, 2, or 3 group model with heat exchangers, thermocompensated group heads, and preinfusion technology.
Although it’s also offered as an automatic version, the Perla AEP is a semi-automatic espresso machine. Rather than volumetric buttons, there is a singular button for starting and stopping the brewing process. This means that the barista will have to be a little more involved, but they also have more freedom in controlling each shot that they pull.
When it comes to production capabilities, the 1 group is best-suited for low-volume situations, especially applications where coffee is secondary; the 2 group is better fit for low- to medium-volume cafes, and the 3 group is able to take on medium- to high-volume conditions.
