Key Features and What They Mean
Pulse Jet Technology
Pulse Jet makes it possible to start and stop the flow of coffee at customizable intervals. This means that you’ll be getting completely different flavor profiles from the same type of coffee depending on how you program the Pulse Jet system. More choices, more impressive results.
The T3 technology provides superior thermal stability. Made up of several insulated copper boilers, the T3 system lets baristas independently set the temperature for each group head and control the primary and coffee group boilers. Temperature regulation at multiple points like this creates high accuracy for reliable consistency.
A high-resolution touchscreen display provides intuitive navigation of the menu. Make adjustments quickly without having to fuss with confusing instruments and instructions.
Remote Control Interface
This is the first professional espresso machine featuring a remote control interface. Simple and straightforward, it lets you access extraction profiles, cleaning cycles, and other functions. It can even show you statistics by hour, day, week, and month.
Optional Smart Water Technology
This history-making technology detects basic water parameters and lets the barista know if any quality changes occur. This gives you better consistency, makes the machine much more robust, and cuts down on maintenance costs in the long run.
Soft Infusion System
Nuova Simonelli’s soft infusion system develops impeccable flavor in every espresso. It also prevents wonky tamping from interrupting the extraction process, so human error won’t stop you from making incredible espresso.
Volumetric Dosing Buttons
The green barista’s best friend, programmable volumetric dosing lets you pull a shot just by pressing a button. The machine measures out the correct volume. Thanks to consistency from shot to shot, different baristas can get the exact same results, making a more reliable product for your customers.
Manual Dosing Controls
Pull long shots, ristretto shots, and customized espresso shots with the manual dosing buttons. Anything your customer requests, your baristas will be able to do on demand.
Raised Group Heads
Brew directly into tall cups that fit neatly under the raised group heads instead of brewing into shot glasses. That way, you’ll speed up production and keep the crema perfectly intact for pretty Americanos and drinks with the espresso floated on top.
Independent Group Head Timers
You can put away your smartphone. The integrated timers on each group head displays shot times so that you don’t need to take up space with external equipment.
Removing the portafilter from the group head triggers the Aurelia Wave T3 to purge the group head on its own. No more dried-up coffee pucks forgotten in the portafilters.
A backplate doubles as a mirror to let you see the espresso in detail as it extracts. Your baristas will be able to see all angles and make sure each espresso is as good as the last without even needing to bend down to check.
Cool Touch Wands
Cool-touch wands make steam wand cleaning burns a thing of the past. The reduced temperature also keeps milk from sticking, so cleaning is much easier.
Push Pull Steam
A long shift making one latte after another can leave your baristas feeling taxed. The push-pull steam levers are comfortable to use and reduce wear and tear on the wrists. Just tap them backwards and forwards to turn them on and off.
If your baristas are struggling to see what they’re doing, it might translate to an inferior product served to your customers. LED lights illuminate the production space, letting your baristas pay close attention to their work.
Like the surface LEDs, the milk lights brighten up the work space, but specifically for milk steaming. They’ll activate when the wands are in use and turn off afterward, saving energy.
Bar Pump Gauge
As the pump creates pressure, the bar pump gauge displays a live pressure reading. Baristas can use this information to help them achieve optimal results.
End-of-day cleaning is important and should never be skipped, but it’s time-consuming. With automated cleanings, save that time for other important tasks and let the machine do the work.
Power Saving Options
Between the T3 technology and the Aurelia Wave T3’s other energy-saving features, the machine’s eco footprint is much smaller.
Water Level Indicator
Checking boiler water levels is simple with the water level indicator. Make sure everything is in working order with ease.
If you prefer automatic milk steaming, add a Smart Wand to your Nuova Simonelli Aurelia Wave T3. You have your choice of an Auto-Steam, EasyCream, or Gooseneck Wand.
Instead of pushing a manual steam handle, you’ll just push a button with the Auto-Steam Wand.
This wand steams milk all by itself. Place the wand in the pitcher of milk and the Auto-Steam Wand turns it into creamy microfoam. This can be especially beneficial to inexperienced baristas, trainees, and restaurant staff.
The EasyCream Wand lets the user set the milk temperature and density while turning milk into smooth microfoam on its own.
This wand is designed to release an initial mixture of air and steam before emitting a fine vapor to produce a rich texture.
When the right temperature is reached, the EasyCream Wand shuts itself off. Baristas love this automatic steam wand.
The Gooseneck Wand froths milk automatically as the barista controls the pitcher to create the optimal texture.
It’s temperature-sensitive, so it will shut off when the milk is ready and prevent burned milk flavors from developing.
Custom colors for the Nuova Simonelli Aurelia Wave T3 are available. Give us a call to inquire.
Red and White are expected to become available in 2019.
2 Group Aurelia Wave T3
The 2 Group configuration of the Aurelia Wave T3 comes with two brew groups and a 14 liter boiler system that makes back-to-back drinks any day of the week.
This is a great choice for medium-volume cafes and businesses. For large locations with particularly high volume, consider two 2 Group models to set up at different points of service.
3 Group Aurelia Wave T3
Three brew groups and a 17 liter boiler system make the Aurelia Wave T3 the right fit for high-volume locations.
More than one barista is able to work on the machine at the same time to further increase production and serve customers quickly.

Common Questions and Answers
Q: How does the Aurelia Wave T3’s Pulse Jet work?
A: Only the Aurelia Wave T3 sports Nuova Simonelli’s patented Pulse Jet. This revolutionary technology provides control of the extraction in multiple phases, giving baristas a much wider range of flavor profiles to explore.
The barista can program the length of each stage of extraction, from pre-infusion all the way to a post-infusion stage.
By stopping and starting the coffee flow at various intervals, you’ll allow the coffee to bloom in different ways and enhance different aromas and tasting notes.
The most simple way to summarize this tech is this way: It gives you essentially infinite options for creating unique variations of the same coffee.
Q: What is the Smart Water Technology option in the Aurelia Wave T3?
A: If you opt for Smart Water Technology, you’ll get a quality management system for the water that no espresso machine has ever offered before.
Smart Water senses certain water parameters and lets you know if any changes to the water quality are detected. This can have a big impact on the espresso as water is such an important factor.
A bonus is that Smart Water reduces maintenance costs related to filter cartridges.
Q: What is the soft infusion system in the Aurelia Wave T3 and what does it do?
A: Soft infusion is what Nuova Simonelli calls its pre-infusion system. Pre-infusion is part of the extraction process in many high-performance espresso machine models.
During pre-infusion, the coffee bed is pre-wet to settle the coffee and evenly saturate the entire puck.
The Aurelia Wave T3 first showers the coffee bed with pressure-free water before releasing the pressurized water during extraction. The final result is an espresso with a nicely developed flavor. You’ll notice a richer taste in an espresso made with soft infusion.
Another thing that soft infusion does is minimize the impact of improper tamping on extraction. It’s like a built-in program to counteract human error.
Q: How do I use the bar pump gauge on the Aurelia Wave T3 to improve my espresso results?
A: The bar pump gauge is much more than an instrument that shows you the pressure built by the pump during extraction. When monitored throughout extraction, this gauge guides you toward better practices.
Say the pressure gauge is reading too low. It’s typically a sign that you should take a look at your brew ratio, or how much coffee you’re using for a shot versus the total liquid volume.
If your grind fineness isn't the issue, add a little more coffee the next time you pull a shot and see if the pressure is adequate.
Or, you might need to tamp with slightly more pressure. Just be careful when making tamping adjustments. Too hard, and the water will have difficulty reaching the coffee particles.
