Blending a traditional aesthetic and an easy-to-use operation, the Astoria Perla is ideal for those that are wanting to serve quality coffee without all the fuss. It’s available as a 1, 2, or 3 group machine and comes equipped with heat exchangers, thermocompensated group heads, and preinfusion technology.

While it’s also offered as a semi-automatic version, the Perla SAE is an automatic espresso machine, offering volumetric controls and 4 programmable buttons per group. This means that the barista is able to simply press a button and then step away to perform other tasks, such as steaming milk for lattes or cappuccinos.

When it comes to workload, the 1 group is ideal for low-volume situations, particularly those where coffee is secondary; the 2 group is best for low- to medium-volume cafes, and the 3 group is capable of handling medium- to high-volume conditions.

Discovery Beach Coffee Cafe

We’re a small new place in the lobby at Discovery Beach Resort in Cocoa Beach, Fl. I love the Perla. It makes great espresso. I had a guest from Cuba last wk and he made a point to get back for “last call” even after 3 bucchis earlier in the morning. That’s a testament to a great cup of espresso ☀️
