Imagine you are sitting at a table, quietly, just a few miles from an Italian beach. Seagulls suddenly seem graceful and the only things that matter in the world are you and the miniature cup hugging your perfectly crafted espresso. Ever since Orlando Simonelli constructed his first espresso machine back in 1936, the Nuova Simonelli company has been recreating this exact experience.

Nuova Simonelli Espresso Coffee Machine Review

What if we told you, that you could have that feeling every day from the comfort of your own home. Yep, Nuova Simonelli did it. They provided us with an easy to use machine of commercial grade that delivers an immaculate espresso. The only thing you will have to worry about now, is how to explain to your friends this new found morning happiness. We cannot stop there though. The Nuova Simonelli Espresso Coffee Machine is in an elite class of its own.

What Makes it Different?

To be short, there are some coffee shops that do not use machines of this quality. Every part of it was created with the espresso lifestyle in mind. With every shot you pour and every cup you create, you will get great coffee, often better than your local barista.

You might see the $1,000 price tag and be slightly intimidated. Our advice, do not be. These machines have reached lives longer than 10 years and still produce strong, flavorful espresso. There are 260 weekdays in a year. If every morning you spent 3 dollars on your much needed beverage you would pay over $750 per year. A machine that can give you more than 10 years of cafe quality coffee for this cheap? Count us in. Here are some more details that make it so great.

“The Nuova Simonelli Oscar Espresso Machine is family. We have had the Oscar for 12 years and have never had a problem with it. Have had it for routine cleaning every three or four years but that’s it. Consistently makes precise shots and velvety foam, simultaneously …everyday. The beauty of this machine is its simplicity, no bells and whistles just one powerful boiler you typically find on more expensive machines.”

“Best espresso machine I have ever owned. I should have spent the money years ago for a real espresso machine. Such a big difference in flavor and consistency… great results much better than any home machine I have ever used… and better than any local coffee places.”

This was definitely enough to get us excited about it. Even if you haven’t fallen victim to lustful espresso, these kind of reviews have a habit of changing that. Like you, we just wish we could use it right now!
