Nuova Simonelli Appia Life, based on the time-tested Appia, is ideal for those wanting excellent performance and reliability, but now with a lower profile, improved features, and easier serviceability. And Appia Life delivers a 13% energy savings, and a 20% less environmental impact (based on an independent Life Cycle Assessment analysis).
Though still lower-priced, Appia Life has a new design, improved brew groups & shot control buttons.
XT Series (Digit): These models are Volumetric machines, but also include LED worklights, and a TFT Digital Display (to easily program espresso shot dosages, brightness, pre-infusion, several maintenance features, on/off times, and display various counters), along with many more smart functions, including a Remote Control feature. The TFT also displays the espresso shot times, eliminating the need for external timers.
The optional EasyCream Automatic Micro-Foaming System replaces the manual steam handle with a button. Once pressed, the modified wand steams in a unique angular direction while monitoring the temperature with an integrated probe, so it knows:
- when to start & stop injecting air for perfect microfoam,
- and when to stop steaming for standardized milk temperature.
EasyCream requires no input from the barista to perfectly texture the milk; the barista simply places the wand in the pitcher of cold milk and when it reaches the desired (programmed) temperature the steam automatically turns off, leading to a consistent drink, regardless of the skill level of the barista.
Suitable for: restaurants, hotels, shops, offices, locations with less experienced baristas, locations with remote owners/managers
Appia Life is able to prepare up to 250 cappuccinos (2 groups version) on daily basis. The machine consisteny is based on two technologies: SIS system, allowing a consistent result, and Easycream that grant a quick and automatic making of dense and velvety milk cream.
Appia Life has DRYTEX THERMICAL technology insulation that reduces 13% of energy consumption compared to the Appia II. Thanks to its new thermal system, new materials, and general optimization of the mechanical components, Appia Life has 20% less environmental impact compared to the Appia II.
Appia Life makes productivity even more efficient thanks to its ergonomic style, improving the service speed and assisting the barista in day-to-day performances. Appia Life has been designed to be more efficient when it comes to maintenance too.
The new XT version completes the Appia Life machine family. The performance remains unchanged compared to the standard version, but the Appia Life XT has evolved in the form and in the innovative details that imporove the final result.
