Crew Review: Nuova Simonelli Talento
While there are several superautomatic espresso machines designed for home use, there is a relatively smaller selection in the commercial space. If your business requires exceptional ease of use and consistency, yet cannot support lengthy barista training, then a machine like the Nuova Simonelli Talento is well worth your consideration.
How does it differ from its residential-oriented counterparts? Like most commercial machines, it comes down to the robustness and quality of the components used to build it. Commercial-grade equipment is designed specifically for high volume wear-and-tear, so you can rely on it to consistently create what may be your business' most important product. Some environments like large hotels with room service, high school cafeterias or even fast food restaurants lend themselves better to a superautomatic because, with little training on part of the operator, tasty espresso-based drinks can be crafted to order.
In addition to its exceptional build quality, the Nuova Simonelli Talento also features sophisticated programming for up to twenty different types of drinks and the option of using a one-touch cappuccino function or an automatic steam wand. During our field trip to Nuova Simonelli's US headquarters, Brandon dove deep into this sophisticated superauto! Check out his full review and demonstration in this comprehensive video.
