Nuova Simonelli surprised just about everyone when they took their popular and exceptionally reliable Appia II espresso machine and made some remarkable changes. 

Appia Life is an economical espresso machine for an active, busy environment. The Appia Life is easy to operate, has a contemporary look with an exterior made from plastic.  Ergonomically designed for the comfort and safety of baristas. Appia Life’s quality group heads are specifically engineered by Nuova Simonelli.

Consider the volumetric model which allows each drink button to be programmed for measured dosing, freeing baristas to focus on what is more important, their customers.  Also available in a compact version. If your business is slated for rapid growth consider the Aurelia Wave or Aurelia Wave Digit for better temperature stability and barista tools to help simplify the brewing process.

Locking the lever in place not only offers baristas relief but frees them to utilize both hands for steaming  to build textures in dairy and non-daity offerings.. 


  • Soft infusion system (SIS): Provides business owners peace of mind over quality and product consistency, no matter who operates the machine. 


  • Tilted Portafilters: An option you will find on many quality espresso machines. Ergonomically designed to prevent strained angles or harmful repetitive motion for baristas. A secondary benefit is that the portafilter will sit on the counter holding the basket level. A great feature if you like to tamp on the counter. 


  • 5 key drink selection: On volumetric Dosing machines only, the 5 key has four programmable buttons per group for barista convenience and for preferred drink volumes.  You can choose to program traditionally, which would be a single and double ristretto, and a single and double long or create your own preferred selections.. The center (Stop) is your manual button. This button can be used to stop a pour, rinse your group after brewing or to brew beverages manually. 


  • Cool Touch steam wand is a manual wand which comes standard on all Appia Life espresso machines.


  • Auto-Steam wand is economically priced and heats to the temperature you program. The Automatic Steam wand is a good choice if you plan to work with larger steam pitchers.


  • Goose Neck Automatic Steam Wand is shaped like the manual Cool Touch steam wand making this automatic wand easier to maneuver when creating foam. Program your temperature and your Goose Neck will automatically shut off when reached.


  • Easy Cream is an automatic steam wand that allows you to program for both foam texture as well as desired temperature. The Easy Cream does all the work for you. This all-in-one steam wand is a good choice for those wishing to simplify the drink preparation process freeing hands for other activities. Currently available only on the Appia Life XT TFT model.
