, actually CMA an Italian company is the largest manufacturer of high end commercial espresso machines in the world. They do make the Astoria and the Venezia but they do not have interchangeable parts and the exterior design is almost exact. What makes Venezia stand apart is Free Onsite Repair in all 48 states or instant exchange if they can't get to you. We all know if your espresso machine goes down today you need it fixed yesterday, and nothing beats Free same day repair. We used to be a repair facility for many of the brands already listed but honestly parts are hard to get and down time is often so we made the switch. All I can say is our customers nationwide are extremely satisfied with the Venezia.Wow that's an Astoria through and through!
