General Espresso Equipment was incorporated in 1995 with a business plan to become the most reliable supplier of professional espresso equipment in North America.
The company features a modern facility on over five acres with a distribution warehouse, testing department, training center for technicians and a showroom with a working cafe for demonstrations.
General Espresso is the exclusive distribution center for Astoria brand commercial espresso machines in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean. Machines are built to U.S. specifications with UL and ETL listings for safety and sanitation under NSF listing.
The espresso machines are offered in a complete line of models from manual to semiautomatic, automatic volumetric and fully automatic in sizes that vary from compact to one, two, three or four brewing heads to fit all possible applications.
The line of espresso coffee grinders includes everything from heavy duty doser grinders to electronic grind-on-demand grinders. Astoria products are complemented by a large selection of coffee accessories, espresso bar tools and a sturdy panini/sandwich electric grill that is available in two sizes.
Along with our national network of distributors, dealers and independent service companies, we are prepared to overcome new expectations with unmatched reliability and innovative technology.
