Astoria launched its HYbrid model at the 7th edition of Triestespresso, which took place in Trieste, Italy from the 23 – 25 October. “HYbrid is the link connecting the great tradition of Italian espresso coffee with the ease of use offered by a fully-automatic machine,” said the company, in a statement. According to Astoria, HYbrid has numerous new technical features, including ergonomic insertion of the filter holder with an automatic blocking system and on-demand grinding. “It’s a hyper-efficient machine that can ensure the perfect amount of coffee for a single or double dose, optimal compression of the coffee in the filter holder, and perfect thermal conduction,” said Astoria, in a statement. At Triestespresso, Astoria will also introduce Sabrina, a more advanced version of the new model. Sabrina is inspired by a 1960s vintage style and comes with illuminated inserts and chrome group covers. It will be on display at the trade fair with a color touch screen display.
