A
STORIA PLUS 4 YOU ESPRESSO MACHINE 2 GROUP REFURBISHED

The Astoria Plus4You is an espresso machine developed to meet the growing demands of the barista, the roaster & the environment.
The Plus4You – fully satisfies the barista & the roaster

The Plus4You grants you maximum quality in the cup and flexibility to adjust the machine according to the coffee origin/blend. Different roast profiles require specific extraction temperatures for the best results in the cup. The water reservoirs are dedicated exclusively to coffee. You can regulate the temperature of each group independently according to the origin/blend. Temperature stability is within one degree. The steam boiler is dedicated exclusively to steam and hot water.
The Plus4You intelligent system compares the extractions of every espresso. If coffee extraction is not perfect (e.g. due to incorrect grind/tamping etc.), the barista receives instant detailed information on the coffee he has just prepared. Plus4You suggests via the LCD display the appropriate corrective actions.

As part of our in house refurbishments, the machine has undergone a major overhaul.

The machine was completely stripped to the frame, with ALL parts being descaled. The group heads and steam valves were descaled and stripped down, getting blast cleaned internally and rebuilt with new seals and filters. The boiler, all valves and components have had all seals, gaskets, filters, o-rings and washers replaced with new. Along with this, many new parts have been fitted as part of the major service including new group solenoid valves, new flowmeters, new inlet solenoid valves, new pump, new certified pressure relief valve, along with any other parts that looked worn during the refurb.

The machine comes with 2 x Astoria Plus4You Portafilter handles, both with double espresso baskets and a blind filter for back flushing the group heads.

This machine has an external pump and motor, which are both new. The machine can be wired as a standard single or phase or commercial 3 phase. Please state which you would prefer when ordering.

This truly is a great machine, very economical and informative via its LCD display. It has been well maintained in the past and with the work it’s just undergone, is now like a new machine internally, although with the usual signs/marks of use externally. Further manufacturers information about the machine can be seen below.

We can also supply water filtration units, knock boxes, grinders, additional portafilters, etc. Please enquire if you are interested in this.

We can supply the machine nationwide via a pallet for approximately £50 or deliver locally for free.

We can install the machine locally, in Cornwall. We also liaise with other professional espresso engineers in various parts of the UK whom can fit the machine should you not have an engineer available. If your interested in this please enquire to see if we can recommend an engineer and give an installation price.

Any questions please feel free to ask.

Plus4You – energy saver

The Plus4You is the first eco-espresso machine in the Astoria Green Line range, a range of energy saving espresso machines which allows you to save up to 47.6% on your power bill as well as reducing carbon emissions.
Most espresso machines waste enormous amounts of energy during off peak periods and when left on overnight. Plus4You only carries power when and where it is specifically required, thus saving energy. The integrated PID manages the automatic stand-by mode during off peak periods and at night, as well as the intelligent control of temperature settings. Settings can be easily programmed via the arrow keys and LCD display located on the push button panel (no need to open machine). Adjusting the settings takes only seconds.
