Key Features and What They Mean

Manual Dosing Buttons

Baristas have full control of extraction with the manual dosing buttons. Designed for more streamlined production, these buttons begin and end the brew process and offer easy operation. Give your customers a truly handcrafted product customized any way they want.

Copper Heat Exchange Boiler

Depending on the number of groups, each Aurelia II Semiautomatic comes with a massive 14 or 17 liter copper heat exchange boiler. Energy-efficient and temperature-stable, this antimicrobial boiler enables the machine to brew and steam at the same time for nonstop espresso drinks during the busiest hours.

Soft Infusion

Nuova Simonelli’s soft infusion system ensures that every espresso is as good as the last. It settles the coffee to prevent tamping mistakes from affecting the espresso and draws out all the subtle flavors of the coffee for a tastier result.

Raised Group Heads

Cafes with multiple drink sizes benefit from raised group heads that can fit tall cups right underneath. Pull espresso shots directly into tall cups and save time on transferring them from shot glasses. A bonus is unbroken crema on top of Americanos for a perfect presentation.

Cool Touch Wands

Steam wand burns don’t have to happen. These wands stay cool to the touch and deter milk from caking on, making cleaning easier.

Push Pull Steam

Give your baristas’ wrists a break with the ergonomic push-pull steam levers. Instead of twisting a traditional steam valve, baristas need only tap a lever on and off to manipulate the steam power.

Surface LEDs

Providing greater visibility, the LED lights on the Aurelia II Semiautomatic illuminate the work area even in dimly lit conditions. This assists quality control for detailed work like latte art and espresso extraction.

Automated Cleanings

The end of the day is when the time-consuming espresso machine cleaning starts—unless you have access to automated cleaning processes. The Aurelia II Semiautomatic performs self-cleaning functions to let staff focus on other tasks and expedite shop closing.

Power Saving Options

This model brings energy efficiency to a robust commercial espresso machine, something more and more cafes are looking for.

Reverse Mirror

The backplate acting as a mirror gives baristas the ability to monitor every aspect of the brewing process without needing to get physically close to the espresso. Ensure that every shot is of the highest quality with ease.

Bar Pump Gauge

Baristas can monitor internal as well as external functions for a more complete quality assessment. The bar pump gauge displays the pressure related to the pump to indicate that extraction is running smoothly.

Water Level Indicator

Keeping an eye on the water level in the boiler is simple with this indicator right on the front of the machine.

Common Questions and Answers

Q: What is the difference between the Aurelia II Semiautomatic and the Aurelia II Volumetric?

A: The main difference between these machines is the featuring of either manual or volumetric dosing.

Designed exclusively for manual dosing, the Aurelia II Semiautomatic is geared toward baristas with experience (usually intermediate to expert baristas).

The manual dosing button must be pushed twice, once to start extraction and once to end it. 

While this is a simplified process in a semiautomatic model, it does require the user to understand extraction well enough to end it at the appropriate volume and time.

What the user gains is total control of extraction—the ability to create any shot to the barista’s (or customer’s) specifications on the fly. 

Pushing the Aurelia II Volumetric’s volumetric dosing buttons gives the user an automatically measured shot. This is easier for beginners—single and double shots can be programmed into the machine for inexperienced users to operate.

The Volumetric version of the Aurelia II also comes with manual dosing buttons, making it a great machine for beginners to experts.

If your staff is well-trained, the Semiautomatic will give them all the flexibility they need to make great espresso. Semiautomatic models are common in high-end coffee shops.

But if your staff has varying skill levels and you don’t have the time to train them, the Volumetric Aurelia II may be preferable.

Q: What is the soft infusion system in the Aurelia II Semiautomatic?

A: This is Nuova Simonelli’s pre-infusion system.

What is pre-infusion? 

It’s an initial stage of extraction in which the coffee bed is immersed in a gentle stream of water. It settles the coffee, prevents channeling, and ensures proper extraction of all the coffee particles. 

In the Aurelia II Semiautomatic, pressure-free water is released into the coffee puck before the pressurized water comes through the group head. 

The well-rounded espresso flavor and beautiful crema that result from the soft infusion system make it a highly sought after.

Q: Who needs the pod kit adaptor for the Aurelia II Semiautomatic?

A: If your staff has little to no training on an espresso machine, espresso pods can help.

Pods cut down on the steps needed to make espresso, eliminating the grinder completely. There’s no grind fineness tuning, tamping, or any opportunity for human error where coffee grinding is concerned.

The downside is that the coffee won’t be fresh like it would be if it were just ground.

On the other hand, the access espresso pods give to businesses that want uncomplicated but premium espresso beverages is unique.

For restaurants, offices, and other establishments that don’t necessarily support barista training, the pod kit for the Aurelia II Semiautomatic might be the best way to go. Anyone can make their favorite drink.

Q: How do I use the bar pump gauge on the Aurelia II Semiautomatic to make better espresso?

A: This gauge is a handy guide when you learn a little more about it. Displaying pressure readings linked to the pump while espresso is brewing, the bar pump gauge shows you if you’re on target or not.

Building to a pressure of about nine bars is standard. If you’re not reaching this, the answer is often that you just need to tweak your brew ratio. This is simply the amount of coffee in your dose to the total liquid volume. 

So if you’re pulling a shot and the pressure is too low, it might be that you need to add more coffee next time, or that the grind fineness isn't quite right. But it could also mean that you’re tamping too lightly. If you know that you’ve tamped quite softly, it might be time to try applying a little more pressure.
