EASE OF USE
One of the things that makes this Italian coffee machine stand out is how easy it is to use. It has a lot of convenient features that makes brewing on the machine very enjoyable. It has a small control panel with a number of programmable buttons so you can set your espresso time (no manual stopping required), be alerted when the tank is running low on water and more. Another really useful feature on this espresso machine is that the boiler auto fills with water to prevent burning (which can often be costly to repair). It also has a large removable drip tray and cup warmer with space for plenty of glasses and mugs. These great features allow you to pull consistent shots, make machine maintenance a lot easier, and user friendly to operate.
When it comes to drink quality, the Nuova Simonelli Musica certainly delivers. It has a professional size 58mm portafilter which lets you brew rich, well-extracted and full bodied espresso shots every time. It also comes equipped with a powerful milk steaming wand which produces a great micro foam for pouring latte art and thick froth for a delicious cappuccino. This was the same steam arm used at the barista championships! The professional coffee machine also has a separate dispenser for hot water. One important feature of the Musica is that it has a heat exchanger which allows you to make the espresso whilst steaming milk – a feature only found on premium home espresso machines. This means you don’t have to wait for the boiler to cool down when switching between milk steaming and coffee brewing. If you want to make multiple drinks through the day, the Musica is one of the best home espresso machines for this. It’s capable of making up to 60 drinks a day which also makes it a great choice as an office coffee machine as well as for your home. These features will let you create delicious espresso based drinks to a very high quality, comparable to what you would expect when visiting your local coffee shop.
The design of the Musica certainly stands out when compared to most other home espresso machines. It’s sleek shape and polished stainless steel finish will look great on any countertop. One particularly nice feature is the sound proof pump which reduces the noise during operation so you won’t be disturbing others around you when making coffee. Overall, the modern, user friendly design and compact size make this a statement piece for your kitchen.
VALUE FOR MONEY
At around the £1000 mark, this machine may appear pricey. However for the drink quality and commercial grade features, it’s definitely worth the investment. With commercial grade machines costing significantly more than the Musica, this model offers great value for money. If you are willing to invest in coffee shop quality coffee for your home then this espresso machine is a very good choice.
