Semi-automatic coffee machines

Semi-automatic coffee machines

To start our journey in search of the ideal Christmas gift, we suggest two models of semi-automatic coffee machines, easy to use, but at the same time highly performing.

Nuova Simonelli Oscar Mood

With Oscar Mood, Nuova Simonelli has expanded and innovated the range of coffee machines intended for domestic use. The machine is available both in the version that foresees a direct connection to the water mains and with a built-in 3-liter tank.

The machine adapts perfectly to the mood of different environments thanks to the 4 different colors to choose from: black, guacamole, dove gray and red.

The heat exchange technology allows you to control the temperature in a stable manner, while at the same time improving the quality of the extraction. A professional PID pressure switch system electronically controls the boiler temperature while an integrated bypass regulates the pressure. The control of the coffee machine functions is managed through a professional display that incorporates the keyboard and allows. Finally, a convenient and intuitive timer allows you to control the coffee brewing times.

Gaggia Carezza Deluxe

Gaggia Carezza Deluxe is a traditional-looking semi-automatic espresso machine with a rounded front and a retro-looking analog temperature dial. The exterior of the machine is mainly made of plastic materials while the front control panel and the cup warmer are in stainless steel. The design and the materials used give the machine a very elegant appearance that makes it suitable for any domestic or professional environment.

Gaggia Carezza Deluxe has a single dual-use boiler for heating water for coffee preparation and for producing steam. A 15 bar pump provides more than enough pressure to achieve quality extraction. Finally, the "perfect cream" pressurized filter holder allows you to obtain impeccable results in the cup.

Automatic coffee machines

Automatic coffee machines

Automatic coffee machines involve the use of coffee beans, and, as their name suggests, they are characterized by having an automatic operation: by simply pressing a button, the appliance performs all the operations necessary for the preparation of the espresso by itself. The coffee machines of this type are equipped with an internal grinder that allows you to grind the coffee beans immediately before preparing the drink, ensuring a very intense and always fresh aroma.

This solution satisfies the needs of those looking for a practical machine that is simple and intuitive to use. Here are our proposals.

Gaggia Anima Prestige

Thanks to one-touch technology, Gaggia Anima Prestige can prepare up to six different drinks at the touch of a button. The integration of the machine with a milk carafe and the large capacity of the tank makes it the perfect choice for families who like to enjoy a wide selection of milk-based drinks.

The Gaggia Adapting System allows you to automatically adjust the grinding cycle thanks to the learning recorded in the previous beverage dispensing cycles, while the Optiaroma function allows you to customize the intensity of the drink thanks to five aroma settings: from extra delicate and extra strong.

Saeco Pico Baristo

Saeco Pico Baristo is an automatic coffee machine with a refined design characterized by fine lines with the right mix of black and chrome accents capable of giving your kitchen a touch of modernity and elegance.

Fully customizable thanks to a convenient LCD screen, it allows you to customize the length of the drinks, the intensity of delivery, the volume of milk and temperature control, with a simple click. The coffee grind can also be adjusted as desired thanks to ten different settings.

This model of coffee machine is the ideal solution for those who want to take advantage of all the functions of the automatic models but with ease of use and cleaning.

Semi-professional coffee machines

Rancilio Silvia Pro

Rancilio, leader in the production and distribution of professional coffee machines, has recently extended its range of products in the home by introducing Silvia Pro, the new espresso machine designed for all aspiring domestic baristas.

The main innovation of Rancilio Silvia Pro is the presence of two separate boilers that allow you to independently adjust the different temperatures for the extraction of coffee and the supply of steam. The temperature, which can be viewed on the display on the front of the machine, is adjusted by means of a special button connected to a PID controller.

Silvia Pro is also equipped with an "alert" function that allows the machine to be switched on automatically and thus accelerate the morning warm-up phases. Thanks to the high quality of the materials with which it is made, it is the ideal choice even for the most intensive uses.
