Up the ante with Nuova Simonelli's Aurelia II Semi-Automatic Commercial Espresso Machine. A certified World Barista Championship Official Espresso Machine, the Aurelia II Semi-Automatic is great for producing quality espresso drinks in high-traffic settings.

How the Aurelia II Semi-Automatic Works
Whether you are opening your first coffee stand or have been in the business for years, the Nuova Simonelli Aurelia II will fit all the needs of your cafe:
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 Aurelia II Semi-Automatic

Some espresso machines have a pre-infusion, this one has a soft infusion. It ramps up to 9 bars, as opposed to going from 3, then blasting with 9 bars. This is especially better if you didn't tamp properly, and reduces the puck splitting. The steam wands are wonderful. Its on the front of the machine, tap it down, and its on, and powerful. Steams milk silky smooth. Others that are a knob, or lever on the side suck if you're a lefty , and on the wrong steam wand.
The one thing I don't like is the auto clean feature. It takes 15 minutes, and you can't stop it once its started. I manually clean each group head for this reason. Oh also, its very expensive, but I didn't pay for it, so I don't care..
Besides that, it makes very good espresso. Its easy to adjust everything including bar pressure. (Posted on 5/15/2014)
