he 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 has been completely stripped to the frame, with ALL parts being descaled. The group heads were descaled and stripped down, getting blast cleaned internally and rebuilt with new seals and filters. New steam valves have been fitted. The boiler, all valves and components have had all their 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 pump, new pressure relief valve, etc along with any other parts that looked worn during the refurb.
The machine comes with 2 x Portafilter handles, both with double espresso baskets, a single espresso basket and a blind filter for back flushing the group heads.
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.
The machine comes with a 6 month warranty and a PSSR report for insurance purposes, all at a fraction of the price of a new machine at £1275.00 plus VAT.
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.
A pro-forma VAT invoice will be provided.
Any questions please feel free to ask.
Further information on the Plus4You – energy saver
The Plus4You was 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.
