Automatic Controls

The Appia Life is an automatic volumetric machine that allows you to just press a button and the machine will run a programmed dose.

It also features an upgraded switchboard with touch control commands.

Made For Medium to High Volume Shops

Staff with less experience or multi-functional baristas (i.e. not always at the machine). Suitable for restaurants, hotels, coffee shops and offices.

Estimated Output:

This espresso maker is rated to do up to 250+ cappuccinos on a daily basis without any issues. 

Standard Features

All Appia Life models retain standard features like soft infusion, powerful steam with push-pull controls, cool-touch wands with steam tips ideal for micro-foaming, automatic back-flushing, and much more.

Get the Perfect Extraction

The Soft Infusion System, developed by the techs at Simonelli, is an innovative pre-infusion system that is adjustable, consistent and has no risk of user error. It is unique because it extracts centrifugally by injecting water at different angles into the coffee cake which eliminates channeling and maximizes espresso extraction by creating more contact time between the water and coffee

Energy Savings

The Appia Life delivers 20% less environmental impact and a 13% energy savings. It also features a thermally compensated soft-infusion design that delivers great-tasting espresso shot after shot.

Historical Brand

Nuova Simonelli has been building espresso machines since 1936. They build all their commercial machines with the key features expected from one of the most respected and renowned coffee machine manufacturers in the world. The Appia Life is a powerful machine that will operate smoothly with consistent customer flows.
