Nuova Simonelli Appia Life, based on the time-tested Appia, is ideal for those wanting excellent performance and reliability, but now with a lower profile, improved features, and easier serviceability. And Appia Life delivers a 13% energy savings, and a 20% less environmental impact (based on an independent Life Cycle Assessment analysis).
Though still lower-priced, Appia Life has a new design, improved brew groups & shot control buttons, and a new XT Series with advanced features (like the TFT Digital Display with PID). 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. Available in a Black, Pearl White or Heart Red finish, with matching grinders available.
3 Models Available:
Semi-Automatic (Standard Series): These lowest-priced models are still capable of delivering high quality espresso. “Semi-automatic” means the barista is in complete control of the machine during the extraction process, both starting and ending the shot according their trained eye, or by using a separate timer or scale. Semi-Automatics have no programming or EasyCream automatic steam wand options.
Suitable for: demanding professionals, smaller equipment budgets
Volumetric (Standard Series): These models allow a barista to program 4 espresso shot volumes per group (single/double/short/long), thereby pulling shots at that exact volume every time with the touch of a button. Shots are more consistent between users and – because the barista doesn’t have to monitor the espresso – there is more time to focus on steaming, interact with customers, or begin another order. Volumetrics also allow for an EasyCream option.
Suitable for: restaurants, hotels, shops, offices, locations with less experienced baristas
XT Series (Digit): These models are Volumetric machines, but also include LED worklights, and a TFT Digital Display (to easily program espresso shot dosages, brightness, pre-infusion, several maintenance features, on/off times, and display various counters), along with many more smart functions, including a Remote Control feature. The TFT also displays the espresso shot times, eliminating the need for external timers.
Suitable for: restaurants, hotels, shops, offices, locations with less experienced baristas, locations with remote owners/managers
Manual Dosing (Semi-Automatic versions) means a single button starts & stops espresso shots for use with shot-timers or scales
EasyCream System (optional on all XT & Volumetric models) with adjustable 2-stage air induction & programmable temperature control, for the ultimate one-touch automatic micro-foam and optimum consistency
Push-Pull Steam System avoids stress on Barista’s hand – press upwards for purging or lock it down for continuous steaming
Cool Touch steam wands are safer and easier to clean

Maintenance, Warranty, Repair
Easy to clean and maintain: Appia II has affirmed all the features that have already made the previous version highly ergonomic: the practical Push & Pull levers, the soft touch of the holder, the stainless steel drip tray and the adjustable stainless steel nozzles which are easy to clean and move, even with bigger containers. The wide viewing angle of the work surface, the water level indicator and the dual scale pressure gauge allow the barista full control of every action. Appia II is also versatile: with groups at standard height or raised to simplify working with tall glasses. Appia II has also been designed paying attention to the work of the technician to make all maintenance operations of the machine easier and faster. New in this sense are the new system to open the sides, the new adjustable nozzle attachments and a redesigned group.
