Simonelli Aurelia II espresso machine
(Volumetric & Semi-Automatic)


Nuova Simonelli Aurelia II, the 2012-2014 official World Barista Championship espresso machine, is ideal for those wanting unprecedented performance and reliability. Designed for barista competitions, it has amazing standard features like soft infusion, work lights you can turn on or off, powerful steam with push-pull controls & cool-touch wands, steam tips ideal for micro-foaming, automatic back-flushing, adjustable hot water temperature, and much more. Comes in a Matte Black, Pearl White or Glossy Red finish, with matching grinders available.

2 Versions Available in the Basic Model:

Volumetric: This version allow a barista to program 4 espresso shot volumes per group, thereby pulling shots at that exact volume every time. Shots are more consistent between users and – because the barista doesn’t have to monitor the espresso – there is more time to interact with customers or begin another order.
Suitable for: medium to high volume locations, high quality coffee shops, restaurants, hotels, demanding professionals, barista competitors, locations with less experienced baristas.

Semi-Automatic: Even without volumetric dosing, this lower-priced version is more than capable of delivering high quality espresso. As a semi-automatic the barista is in complete control of the machine during the extraction process, both starting and ending the shot according their trained eye, or by using a separate timer or scale.
Suitable for: medium to high volume locations, high quality coffee shops, specialty coffee shops, demanding professionals, barista competitors, smaller equipment budgets
