The Nuova Simonelli Musica Direct Connect is a beautifully designed stainless-steel machine that harbors professional functionality combined with an easy-to-use button interface. It comes in a Lux version with LED lighting surrounding the frame or a version with black lining. As for its espresso-making qualities, a programmed pre-infusion system gets a full extraction from your grind and brews consistent espresso shots every time. The steam wand on this machine is one of the best we've ever seen, featuring an easy to use lever that opens up a high-pressure steam flow so you can master both lattes and cappuccinos. This model is for the users who want to specifically plumb in their machines (most likely in a small cafe or heavy home use). We highly recommend using a filtration system as well.
Features & Functionality of the Nuova Simonelli Musica
- Heat Exchanger: The Musica uses heat exchanger functionality, which ensures that each espresso shot is brewed at a consistent temperature to give you the best tasting shot possible.

Ask a Question
The 16.75" is to the top of the machine, so it doesn't include cups in the warmer. However, the top shelf of the unit for the cups is lower than the top edges of the unit. In my case, with cups, the height comes to 17.75", therefore fitting below our cabinets that are 18" above the counter. I would like to add two things. First, I absolutely love this machine. I'm not materialistic, so it is odd to state that this is the best thing I've ever purchased. I guess I just love coffee that much. The frother is amazing. Finally, the hose that comes with it (for direct water line) is in a European standard, specifically British Piping Standard. It may be common to most, but I had some difficulty figuring out how to connect it to my direct water line with US sizing. This may not apply to you.
