A Step Forward
The Tempesta represents a dramatic shift in Astoria's offerings. Known primarily for their budget-friendly heat exchanger machines, Astoria put their best foot forward with the Tempesta: a fully featured multi-boiler machine that can go toe-to-toe with the best of them. Inside, you'll find independent brew boilers, a capacious insulated steam boiler with tons of steam power, and adjustable heaters in each group to further manage the brewing system temperature. Each group is a adorned with a 5" touch display that makes everything from pulling a shot, running a backflush cycle, and programming your recipes during your morning dial-in a snap. On top of that, the displays offer an unprecedented look at live espresso performance, with a live graph of both pressure and flow rate for each shot you pull.
Each of the Tempesta's groups can be programmed independently. Boiler temperature, group heater temperature, and even the brew recipes can all be set to your desired settings and if you wish to program each group differently - such as for pulling different coffees - you can. The volumetric programs also include a timed pre-infusion stage of up to 10 seconds. With 6 shot profiles at your disposal, you can set and pull any style of shot you wish. Each group also features a mechanical button right above the portafilter handle, making it effortless to lock in and pull a shot in one motion. The button can be programmed to pull a standard double, run in continuous flow mode, or to run a quick flush of water through the group to clear any residual grinds.
As part of Astoria's Green Line, the Tempesta also features eco modes to save on energy usage. The machine can be set to revert to a low power, standby mode on a schedule or manually, and it can even learn to automatically distribute power where it is needed based on usage. By limiting power use overnight and during slow periods, the Tempesta is capable of reducing energy costs by up to 47%.

Anatomy of Espresso Drinks: A How-To Guide and History of Espresso Drinks
Whether you’re actually sitting at a picturesque Italian cafe or simply visiting your local coffee shop, espresso does an extraordinary job at blending science and history to form a coffee delicacy capable of sparking a new found appreciation for the technique and art that goes into coffee, or even at times, if only for a moment, takes you to the distant land of its origins.
Espresso Machine Maintenance
You and your machine make great espresso; let's keep it that way. Taking care of your espresso equipment will ensure that it lives a long life and always does what it should. Here's your chore list.
Product Maintenance | Gasket Replacement
When it comes to giving your espresso machine a long and happy life on your bar, preventative maintenance is crucial. Regularly replacing worn out group head gaskets is an important part of that maintenance, since the gasket creates a tight seal for your portafilter.
