Astoria’s Storm in the limelight at the 2018 The Milan Coffee Festival

SUSEGANA, Italy – From November 30 to December 2 Astoria will be a key player at the Milan Coffee Festival scheduled to take place at Spazio Pelota in the Lombardy capital.

Besides having its own stand M26-M34 where visitors will be able to attend a show and master-class of Latte Art and Coffee Sensory, masterfully orchestrated by Astoria’s Brand Ambassadors Arnon Thitiprasert and Michalis Dimitrakopoulos, respectively World Champions of 2017 Latte Art and 2016 Coffee in Good Spirits, Susegana enterprise will be the official sponsor for Latte Art Live, an experiential area dedicated to Latte Art with experts of international fame holding demonstrations, workshops and competitions.

The machine selected to support the Latte Art champions in their spectacular exhibitions is in fact Astoria’s Storm, a perfect partner for creating incredible designs, expressing one’s creativity to unbelievable heights, thanks to the innovative Super Dry technology with its dry steam dispensing, and the “cool touch” Barista Attitude wand.

Storm allows magic to be made with milk! Without its dry steam and totally flexible movement, I would have never been able to outline the detailed strokes of the “Jumping rabbit on a tree”, the “Deer looking back” and the “Walking fox” that helped me win the world championship” confirms Arnon Thitiprasert, who will also be performing on the Latte Art Live stage.
