Espresso Machine

Nuova Simonelli


Compact, Modern, Precise

Suitable for: Low to Medium volume locations, restaurants, small shops, demanding professionals.

The Appia Life Compact condenses all of the features of the Appia Life into one efficient package. Reducing the width of this machine by 9 inches from that of the original, allows this machine to fit into any setting. All the while still maintaining two groups, two steam wands, and a hot water spout.


The Appia Life Compact Semi. is an extremely simple machine to operate. Using an on/off switch the barista gets full control of the extracting time in relation to coffee blends. While the internal compounds make it more than capable of delivering high-quality espresso, especially at the hands of an experienced barista.


The Appia Life Compact Vol. is the ideal machine for baristas looking for amazingly consistent coffee. Being volumetric this machine allows baristas to program desired volumes and consistently pull shots at that volume throughout the day. Because the barista no longer has to monitor each and every shot, they are given precious time to interact with customers or perhaps begin another order. Making this machine ideal for a number of shops and setups.

Smart Wand Options

This machine is compatible with 1 Auto-Steam Wand on the Volumetric model only. Select Volumetric and with Autosteam above.

Auto-Steam Wand: Like the Gooseneck Wand this modification replaces the manual steam handles with a button. However, Auto-steam requires no input from the barista to texture the milk. The barista can simply place the wand in the pitcher of milk and the Auto-Steam Wand will do the rest.
