Crew Review: Nuova Simonelli Aurelia Commercial Espresso Machine

We hit the road again! This time around, we headed to Nuova Simonelli’s showroom in south Seattle to get a technical rundown and check out a few of their commercial-class machines. First up is the Aurelia, which was selected by the World Barista Championship as their competition model for the past few years, primarily because of its distinctively massive brew head design.

Watch as Gail takes us through the features, options, tech specs and functionality of this gorgeous machine.

    Hello,

    I was just wandering if the auto steamer in this video originally came with this machine, it seems slightly different than what I see in the brochure or in your video of the Simonelly Appia. I am not quite happy with the result of the auto steamer that I have seen in the brochure or on the Aurelia in the store near my house. So I would like to know if I could get the one I see in this video.

    Thank you

    Maxime

      Hi Maxime,

      As far as we know, the auto steam wand on the Aurelia is what is currently available; I know that their brochures are not kept quite as up to date as functional improvements are made and they often cover things that are internationally available as well as what’s in the US. Do you know what year the Aurelia at your local store is? That could help me deduce whether or not you’d be happy with this version.

      Thanks!
