- Seattle Coffee Gear 1 Year Extended Warranty - $69.00 value
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.

- 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.
- Direct Connect (Plumbed) : This machine is directly plumbed into your water supply; recommended for a small cafe or very active kitchen.
- 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.
- 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.
