Using its passion, innovation and technology to provide coffee lovers with an ideal cup of espresso every time, Nuova Simonelli offers cafe and restaurants with heavy traffic plenty of customer satisfaction with the Appia Semi-Automatic Commercial Espresso Machine. The Appia Semi-Automatic features automatic dosing and an ergonomic design for the well being of baristas. The operation of the machine will be smooth and minimize physical stress. As one of Nuova Simonelli's larger machines, the Appia Semi-Automatic offers raised group heads, ergonomic portafilters, inox work tray, two inox steam wands and a hot water wand.

Compare the different versions:

  • Semi-automatic (EE): This version is what you might commonly find in your average coffee shop, where time and water quantity are all controlled by the barista during extraction. No need to worry about pressure profiles, as these machines will take care of that for you at a standard 9 bars.
  • Auto-Volumetric (AV): This version will take a lot of the guess work out of your extraction variables by setting water quantity profiles that will keep everything much more consistent across the board. This sort of machine is considered quite a bit easier to use.

Features & Functionality of the Appia 2 Group Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine

  • Heat Exchanger: With its copper boiler, this heat exchanger will allow you to brew and steam at the same time with ease and at a faster rate than non-heat exchangers. The temperature will stay consistent through and through from boiler to brew head giving you that ideal shot every time.
  • Soft Infusion System: Guarantees soft and creamy espresso shots every time.
  • Optional Smart Wand: Allows anyone to make thick and velvety milk-based drinks, always at the same temperature with the proper amount of foam. Select two regular steam arms, or one regular and one Auto Steam arm.
  • Raised Group Heads: Tall enough to put your cup right underneath the group.
  • Cup Warmer: The top of this machine functions wonderfully as a cup warmer, drawing heat directly from the boilers to the stainless-steel top, thus priming those latte and shot glasses for perfect warmth.
  • Automatic Dosing: At a push of a button you won't need to worry when to stop or start your ideal shots. The programmable buttons make measuring the right amount of espresso a piece of cake.

do I have to provide a 21/2" trap and drain it to a floor sink? I'm doing a tea bar in northern California.
A shopper on Mar 13, 2014
Best Answer: The Appia comes with a 5 foot hose for drainage, and you will need to provide a hole in the counter along with a drain for it to go into.

can you use a one shot portafilter with this machine? If so, how does the machine know which portafilter is being used by a standard switch instead of 1 or 2 shot button?
lacey on Dec 7, 2015
Best Answer: The machine does come with a single shot portafilter, so you could definitely brew a single shot with it. When you're brewing, you'll just stop the brew when you've brewed a single shot. Typically, to still accomplish the right timing for your shot, to brew within that 20-30 seconds, you'll generally need to change the grind setting a little bit finer so that the water doesn't flow through the grounds quite as quickly. Switching between single and double shots can be quite hard on your grinder and coffee consumption, so often, baristas/cafes when needing just a single shot, will just discard the 2nd shot that they brew. This enables the grind setting to remain the same.
