Key Features and What They Mean
Programmable Volumetric Dosing Buttons
Baristas can program single and double dose profiles on the Aurelia II Digital for quick access during the busy day. Volumetric dosing ensures consistency like no other type can.
Manual Dosing Buttons
With one button, start and end the brew process manually. This is a simple way of providing customization of espresso shots on the fly for specific customer requests.
A high-resolution 4.25 inch LCD display comes standard on this machine. Programming dosages, adjusting boiler pressure, controlling pre-infusion, and accessing energy saving settings happens right at your fingertips.
Copper Heat Exchange Boiler
Enjoy the power of an incredibly robust boiler that can brew espresso and steam milk simultaneously for drink after drink with no trouble. Offering temperature consistency and tireless steam power, the copper heat exchange boiler is energy-efficient and even antimicrobial.
Soft Infusion System
Making top-notch espresso is simple with the soft infusion system. It guarantees quality while providing a defense against improper tamping, preventing human error from hurting results.
Raised Group Heads
If you own a coffee shop, chances are, you sell drinks in different sizes. Instead of having to brew into shot glasses, brew directly into tall cups—they’ll fit right under the raised group heads, saving busy baristas time and energy.
Push Pull Steam Triggers
It’s hard not to love the push-pull steam triggers. They make steaming milk all day a breeze. If you’re switching from turning steam mechanisms, you’ll notice the difference right away.
Cool Touch Wands
Cool-touch wands are the end of accidental burns by getting too close to the steam wands. A bonus is that milk won’t get caked onto them, so cleaning is much easier.
LED lights grant greater visibility in darker conditions for baristas. A proper light source is vital for detailed work like espresso production.
No need to get physically close to the espresso while it’s pouring from the group head. The reverse mirror will show you the hard-to-see angles so that you can monitor the quality while keeping production rolling.
Bar Pump Gauge
See the pressure built by the pump during extraction. This will help to guide baristas in pulling better espresso shots.
Water Level Indicator
Making sure that the water level in the boiler is adequate is simple with this indicator, giving you greater power to ensure that all is functioning properly.
If you haven’t looked forward to end-of-day machine cleaning, you might now with automated cleaning cycles. The Digit will perform self-cleaning tasks on each group so that baristas can multitask and increase efficiency.
Power Saving Options
Save energy and reduce your power usage with the Digit’s power-saving functions.
Smart Wand Options
The Digit is compatible with up to two temperature-controlled Gooseneck or Auto-Steam Wands.
Temperature Controlled Gooseneck Wand
This handy device replaces one or two of the Digit’s manual steam handles with a button.
Pressing the button begins the milk frothing process. The steam wand reads the milk temperature, and the barista moves the pitcher to texture the milk. At the optimal milk temperature, the automated steam shuts itself off.
You’ll get lattes and cappuccinos at perfect temperatures every time (i.e., burn-free milk).
Like the Gooseneck Wand, the Auto-Steam Wand puts a button in place of the manual steam handle.
Unlike the Gooseneck Wand, the Auto-Steam Wand requires no input from the barista. It textures the milk by itself.
All the barista needs to do is place the wand in the milk and let the Auto-Steam Wand create beautiful microfoam for every drink.
Pod Kit Adapter
The Digit supports a standard pod kit adapter.
We install these left to right, unless a particular head is specified in the comment section while checking out.
They can also be moved by the user with a screwdriver..
All color options can be selected above.
Please contact us about additional custom colors at (888) 978-5224.

Common Questions and Answers
Q: What is the difference between volumetric and manual dosing in the Digit?
A: Volumetric dosing is a far more automated process than manual dosing.
When the user hits the single or double volumetric dosing button on the Digit, the machine automatically distributes the correct volume of water. So while the barista starts extraction, the Digit ends it at the perfect volume.
This is why consistency is increased with volumetric controls—it’s easier for a machine to regulate volume than it is for humans. Every shot is uniform in this respect.
The user both starts and ends extraction when using the manual button. While you might not get the same consistency, you’ll gain the ability to get creative with any shot at any point in time.
If a customer asks for a ristretto shot and it isn’t programmed into the machine, the barista just switches to manual brewing. No time-consuming changes must be made to the machine’s programming.
Q: What is the difference between the Aurelia II Digit and the Aurelia II Volumetric?
A: The big difference that produces a noticeable effect is the Digit’s LCD display. This display is an upgrade that makes an already user-friendly machine even simpler in operation.
But you’re getting high performance and advanced functionality in each machine.
Q: How do I use the bar pump gauge on the Digit to make better espresso?
A: Reading this gauge tells you that something needs to be changed in your espresso process.
It’s generally agreed that nine bars of pressure are needed to create a good espresso shot. You can see whether this is happening or not by viewing the bar pump gauge on the front of the Digit.
If you’re not getting the right pressure, one thing to start looking at is your brew ratio. All this means is tweaking the amount of coffee you grind into your portafilter to the volume created when you pull the espresso shot.
You may need to add more or less coffee. If this isn't the issue, try changing the grind fineness. Or you may need to adjust your tamping pressure (if you tamp too hard or too lightly, it can negatively affect extraction).
Checking the pressure gauge is part of the process of ensuring that all your steps to making espresso have been correct.
Q: What is the soft infusion system in the Digit?
A: When you see “soft infusion,” what you’re reading about is Nuova Simonelli’s pre-infusion system.
For those new to the term, pre-infusion occurs (in a machine that features it) when water is gently released into the brew group to saturate the coffee puck and promote full, even extraction.
This may happen before the pump kicks on or after, while the pump slowly increases pressure (but well before the nine bars are reached).
The Digit’s soft infusion system releases pressure-free water into the coffee puck before the pressurized water comes through. This settles the coffee, prevents channeling, and creates a well-rounded espresso flavor and excellent crema.
Q: Who needs the pod kit adaptor for the Digit?
A: Beginner baristas and those with little to no experience with coffee might choose espresso pods. A machine outfitted to take espresso pods requires no grinder to make espresso. The pods replace the freshly-ground coffee.
While espresso pods are not typically seen in coffee shops, they might be found in restaurants, offices, and other locations that lack trained baristas.
While fresh coffee is always going to win in terms of quality and flavor, pods can be the only real solution in many environments.
In this case, espresso pods are not just convenient, but necessary, making a great alternative to fresh espresso and giving anyone the ability to make their favorite latte.
