Product Description

The Nuova Simonelli Musica is a beautifully designed stainless steel machine that harbors professional functionality combined with an easy-to-use button interface. 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.

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.
  • Beautiful Interface: The Musica's interface displays beautiful back lit programmable buttons. With intuitive functionality, you aren't left guessing what buttons brew and which knobs steam.
  • Professional Portafilter: This machine uses a high quality and durable 58mm portafilter.
  • Great Steam Pressure: High pressure steam gives you the option to froth your milk almost any way you like. The steam handle on this machine is one of the best designed units we have ever seen; no pesky knobs, just a sliding valve.
  • Cup Warmer: The top of this machine functions perfectly as a cup warmer, with about enough space to hold nine shot glasses cappuccino cups.
  • Sturdy Construction: Wonderfully designed stainless steel body with professional internal parts.
  • Excellent Shots - Once you tweak the machine to your liking, it will make drinks just how you want them every time with little to no variation from the settings you have chosen.
  • Aesthetics - The Musica has a practically all stainless-steel construction, which looks great on any counter.
  • Steam Performance - This machine will have your milk hot and frothed in no time. The actual knob to turn on the steam wand is one of our new favorites. It features a simple slide up and down, which opens up the valve.
  • Large Size - The size of this machine is quite large, so you'll need to measure the space in your kitchen.
  • Water Reservoir Design - Some users may not like the water reservoir design. The water spigot tends to spray everywhere.
How Does it Compare?

An SCG Crew favorite, the Musica stacks up favorably against any espresso machine out there. And you can't diss the disco lights!

Tips and Tricks
  • This unit can be used as an automatic and a semi-automatic.
  • The Musica also includes a vibratory pump. To prevent damage on plumbed models, a regulator on the water line is recommended.

Nice unit, upgrade over Rancilio S1Review by snob sommelier
I have owned the Nuova Simonelli Musica Lux for 2 months, so time for a review. I use the Musica every day.

For context, my previous machine was a Rancilio S1...nice machine too, used daily for 13 years. I owned a Gaggia Espresso before that.

Nuova Simonelli Musica is best at:: espresso production, steaming milk, and smaller counter size meets high end operation.
- The programmed double shot espresso setting is excellent, and I found it very easy to dial in a grind to match (with a Rancilio Rocky).
- The hot water delivery is very "spitty", loud and a bit annoying but not a deal killer. Honestly it's surprising given how nicely everything else works on the Musica. If you make lattes and cappuccinos all day you'll never notice. My wife strongly dislikes it.

Rancilio S1 is best at: hot water delivery, roomy top rack for cups, nice espresso production.
- Manual machine that produces excellent espresso.
- Hot water delivery for Americanos and tea is excellent.
- Milk steaming is good, not great. My S1 was built circa 2000 so maybe Rancilio has improved the design over the years. Again, very functional but not great.
- Big machine, bigger than most ktichen cabinet clearance. Perfect for small business applications like a bakery or catering since it's 110V.

Solid, not a bad machine, but better choices out thereReview by Ken
I bought one of these machines about 9 months ago to have as a spare and also for the occasional need to have a portable machine I could take other places. It certainly works OK for those uses and for those who are not used to a really top shelf machine it will seem oh so much better than much cheaper single boiler and capsule/superauto machines.

What this is is basically an Oscar with a false pressure valve, a few programmable choices and a much more presentable and solid case. But it is basically an Oscar, which is a not-bad, entry-level, heat exchanger machine.

I have no problem with HX machines having used them for a couple of decades, especially Cimbalis (which are considerably more solid, more heat stable, and better constructed than an Oscar or Musica) and this machine certainly surpasses the minimum level necessary for someone who knows what he or she is doing to pull decent shots.

But is it worth $2000 plus? No, it is not, in my humble opinion. There are better choices and for little more you can get a very good high end home ("prosumer, " how I hate that term) dual boiler machine, something I'd much rather use than this product. (Posted on 6/22/2015)
Best Purchase Ever!!Review by G H
Great Quality, Looks sexy as heck! Makes a great espresso shot every time. Excellent quality for the money. Would not trade it in for anything. (Posted on 12/6/2014)
Highlight of my morningReview by bjo
Perfect latte every morning, no matter how tired I am. Using Lavazza super crema, I set up a program to brew the perfect cup everytime. So good that I stopped using a sprinkle of sugar on top. And so good that I am often disappointed when I get a latte at a coffee shop. Saving me money though, because I take my own from home now instead of buying out. Had a problem with the pressure value gasket and (after the hassle and cost of return shipping) had a super positive experience with Seattle Coffee replacing the gasket and return shipping promptly. Then my mornings were filled with Musica again. Happy with the Ranchillio grinder Seattle Coffee recommended as well, esp since my husband brews drip occasionally and can easily change the grind. Thanks Seattle Coffee for the demo video that sold me on this morning miracle machine. (Posted on 7/28/2013)
An upgrade from SuperautomaticReview by TC
Overall design:
I brought the Lux version. The overall "look" stands out from the rest of machines in the similar price range. All the knobs and switches are intuitive. The electrical switches on top are well designed and protected with a soft touch glossy pad. The power on/off rocker switches are all hidden. Once the power switch is on, you will see the machine "on/off" switch light start flashing. It tells you the machine has power but it is not on. After the on/off switch is pressed for a few seconds, then the entire panel is all lighted up to tell you the machine is on. The casing has polished stainless steel finish. The drip tray is made of stainless steel heavy gauge wire grid similar to the commercial soda fountain drip tray. The bottom is of heavy gauge plastic. Cleaning is reasonable easy. The portafilters (a single and a double ) are heavy and with a nice polished chrome finish.

Cleaning: very easy. Just run some water right after every shot by pressing the manual shot switch, then wipe with a soft towel. I've checked this method of cleaning after one week of use by removing the splash screen under the group head, and found the group head is quite clean. For the steam wand, I recommend to clean with a towel that was wet with cold water. As the steam wand is very, very hot. It will burn you if you do not use cold water towel. I also recommend to remove the stainless steel filter from the portafilter handle to remove all the oil that can trap inside the portafilter.

Function: (I am a very busy person and I do want everything quick!)
This machine takes about 5-6 minutes to warm up and ready for the first shot. There are two ways you can find out if the machine is ready. First, you will hear a click on/off sound from the valve, and the second is by looking at the pressure gauge. By the time, I put the toast in the toaster and finished the grind, usually the machine is ready for the shot. One very good feature about this machine is the ability to do automatic dosing. ( Remember I want everything quick.) I do not have to baby sit the machine as with other manual machines. Once the shot begins, I can go get the milk and start the steaming process. The steam is powerful and it is "HOT". It does heat up the milk very quickly. By the time, I finish the steaming, coffee is ready done, my toasts are ready done waiting for me. Then, breakfast is ready.

Learning curve (!) : Remember I never make coffee like this before.
Thanks to the videos from Seattle Coffee Gear, I am able to make a decent shot within 5 tries (I also brought a grinder from Seattle Coffee Gear). Plus, this is a semi-automatic machine, and I do not have to guess how much water I need to run thru the coffee. (I do not have time for that). I just use the milk to adjust for the strength of the coffee.

Other things you also want to know:
1, The steam wand is very, very hot, and the black rubber insulator is very skinny. Therefore, never touch the steam wand even with the rubber insulator on the machine. You will get burn!
2, This machine is made in Italy, and there are a lot of spell mistakes thru out the instructions and on the machine.
3, If you are picky with product finishes, you will notice a slight warping with the stainless steel drip tray. It is due to the numerous welding made to this wire mesh. It is not a function problem but the company can do a little more QC to correct this welding shrinkage issue.

All and all it is a very easy to use machines, very easy to clean, and it is not an industrial looking machine in my kitchen. (Posted on 5/12/2013)
