The crowning achievement in espresso machine technology, the Aurelia II from Nuova Simonelli has been chosen as the official espresso machine of the World Barista Championship thanks to its engineering achievement and barista friendly design. The Aurelia II Semi-Automatic 2-Group Espresso Machine (MAUREIISEM02ND0001) is the first espresso machine to practically implement several theoretical models as well as new technological advancements. Because of this, it is even able to achieve temperature stability of 0.5°C or better using only its own water and a single heat source, so while the brew temperatures of other espresso machines may vary by up to 30°C between shots, the Aurelia is able to consistently pull shot after shot of the finest quality espresso in the world. For additional consistency and better espresso extraction, the Aurelia also features Nuova Simonelli’s patented Soft Infusion System® which reduces cracking and channeling of the coffee cake. More than just a pre-infusion system, the SIS® acts as a double-infusion system by first delaying full water pressure, allowing the coffee cake to become fully and evenly saturated.
