Nuova Simonelli and UCC Coffee United Kingdom & Ireland are set to launch the Appia Life traditional espresso coffee machine at the Caffe Culture Show from 28 to 29 October 2019.
The Appia Life features the same technology for consistent espresso quality as the previous generation Appia II but with new barista-friendly features, new ergonomic design, and energy-saving credentials.
Its new simplified design includes a reverse mirror, allowing the barista to check the group head from a more comfortable position and more responsive soft push button panel. The Appia Life is built from durable, sustainable materials and is 30 millimetres lower than the previous machine, enabling increased customer and barista interaction.
UCC Coffee UK & Ireland says sustainability is at the heart of the Appia Life, with a 20 per cent reduction in environmental impact compared to the Appia II.
Smart and simple to use, it features automatic cleaning and adjustable steam arm. It’s easy for technicians to maintain with a new side opening system and redesigned groups for minimal disruption to service.
Proven technology from the previous generation Appia II includes built in volumetric dosing, push and pull steam levers, soft-touch buttons, Nuova Simonelli’s soft infusion system, and optional additional features including EasyCream technology for hands-free, velvety milk.
“The Appia Life has been developed by Nuova Simonelli with the barista in mind. It boasts a compact, solid build made for quality and consistent performance,” says Will Kenney, Independent and Trade Sales Controller at UCC Coffee UK & Ireland.
“Both operators and baristas can rely on the machine to make it simple to deliver high quality coffee that Nuova Simonelli is known for.”
Appia Life is available in a range of configurations, I, II and III Groups, standard and XT versions and in three colours: black, white pearl and heart red.
Nuova Simonelli traditional espresso equipment is distributed exclusively in the UK & Ireland by UCC Coffee UK & Ireland.
