Confirmation and excitement for the 2013 edition of Internorga

Internorga (5)When in came to contacts, attendance and sales, the results from this event exceeded all expectations. This was the ideal bottom line that Astoria scored from its participation in Internorga, the leading trade fair in the catering and food service sector, which was held from the 8th to the 13th of March at the Hamburg Messe expo district in the heart of Hamburg. Astoria introduced some new trends, including the cold steam wand, and the top models from their range.

One of the crowd favorites was the Plus4You, the top machine which has become quite popular on the local market thanks to all the times it has participated in the German BaristaInternorga (8) Championships. To celebrate this close relationship, for Internorga Astoria organized a special Italian-themed evening for the judges and baristas which offered fun and excitement and lasted until 4 in the morning.

In fact, the evening hosted an unforgettable surprise party in honor of Axel Jahraus, an important German barista who has always supported Astoria. Axel has recently returned to work after overcoming some serious health issues. He was joined by his wife and celebrated by colleagues and friends with appreciative speeches, compliments and plenty of tears of joy
