Who Should Buy The Nuova Simonelli Oscar II? 

Home User

The Nuova Simonelli Oscar II makes advanced commercial espresso machine features more affordable for home baristas. 

It trims any unnecessary extras in favor of powerful steaming, programmable dosing, and soft infusion for easy machine operation and high-quality lattes.

Small Cafe and Small-Medium Restaurants

Small coffee shops, restaurants, and other low-volume locations can rely on the Oscar II to deliver consistent results. 

With programmable timed dosing, soft infusion, and an ergonomic steam lever, it’s a user-friendly machine that can help you grow your small business with increased efficiency and top quality results your customers will remember.

Small Office

Office employees and any non-barista staff reap the benefits of timed dosing. It’s easy to use, helping everyone make great Americanos and cappuccinos without needing to stop the work flow and visit the coffee shop.


The Nuova Simonelli Oscar II was created to give home espresso enthusiasts and professional baristas a low-cost but high-performance alternative.

The Nuova Simonelli Oscar 2 delivers quality you can taste.

You’ll get velvety espresso and fine microfoam from this user-friendly machine. The antimicrobial copper boiler is a natural heat conductor while the heat exchanger provides powerful steaming capability.

Enjoy Consistent Shots with the Oscar II

Unlike other semiautomatic espresso machines, the Oscar II comes with single and double dosage buttons you can set by time, allowing shops to increase efficiency and consistency between espresso shots. 

Key Features and What They Mean

Programmable Timed Dosing Buttons

Program single and double espressos by time to help you control the conditions for continuously excellent espresso shots.

Soft Infusion System: This is an initial phase of brewing that promotes even extraction, nice crema, and enhanced flavor.

Push Pull Steam

This ergonomic steam trigger takes it easy on your wrists. Baristas making drinks all day won’t get worn out as easily by the steam trigger.

Reverse Mirror: Built into the back plate, the reverse mirror shows you all angles of the espresso as it pours from the group head. Check the quality of your espresso shots without even needing to bend down.

Copper Heat Exchange Boiler

Copper is an antimicrobial material and a natural heat conductor, increasing sanitation and allowing the boiler heat more efficiently. Thanks to the heat exchanger, you can brew and steam at the same time.

Extended Articulating Steam Arm

The steam arm rotates freely so that you can better position a milk pitcher. With the extended length, you can reach down deeper into the pitcher, distribute heat more evenly, and control the aeration for better microfoam.

Commercial Grade 58 mm Portafilter

This is the kind of heavy-duty portafilter used with commercial espresso machines, giving you a professional experience. Single and double baskets are included.

Cup Warmer

Store espresso cups right on top of the machine and they’ll be automatically preheated when it’s time to make a drink. Your lattes will stay warmer.

Common Questions and Answers

What is soft infusion on the Nuova Simonelli Oscar ii?

Soft infusion is Nuova Simonelli’s pre-infusion system. Pre-infusion is a pre-wetting of the coffee bed to reduce channeling and soak the entire coffee bed before the full pressure of water is released.

The result is better extraction of all the coffee particles, and thus a better, more well-rounded flavor.

The Nuova Simonelli Oscar II has a quick pre-infusion stage that is set by the company (not changeable as an individual feature). However, this makes using the feature simple for newer baristas and anyone who doesn’t have time to fiddle with machine settings.

What is the difference between timed dosing and volumetric dosing?

Ah, we’re glad you asked about this. First, let’s cover the basic difference between a semiautomatic and automatic model.

Here’s how these machines generally work. Whereas a semiautomatic’s dosing is controlled by the user (who starts and stops the brew cycle manually), an automatic machine ends the brew cycle on its own when the programmed espresso volume has been reached.

With a machine like the Oscar II, you have something in between these models because of the timed dosing. It’s ending the brew cycle for you like an automatic machine, but using time instead of volume as a reference point. 

Though it works differently and may change your process a little (timed dosing may produce a shot that’s half the volume that you actually need unless you change your method), timed dosing offers the same opportunity to increase consistency and efficiency in a busy shop.

Why is seeing the espresso pouring in the reverse mirror a good thing?

If you’re a beginner barista, you may be just starting to familiarize yourself with all the visual cues of a quality espresso shot. 

With the built-in mirror, you can watch for these visual cues while the shot is pouring. This can help you understand what’s going right or wrong in your process.

You’ll see how fast or slow the shot is pouring, watch for blonding, and monitor for signs of a good (or bad) shot in action as if you were bending down to take a closer look.

The better you can see, the more knowledgeable you’ll become about good espresso and the more confident you’ll be in your results.
