A lot of coffee drinkers may not have heard of the Nuova Simonelli. In 1936, an Italian engineer, by the name of Orlando Simonelli developed the first professional espresso machine in his workshop in Tolentino.
he espresso machine was technically innovative and way ahead of its time. For one, it used a pump that allowed for a continuous delivery system, which is still seen in some espresso machines today.
Orlando Simonelli’s mission of bringing technical innovative espresso machines, which inspired him to build his first espresso machine in 1936, remains true to this day and held in upmost regard by Nuova Simonelli.
Since then, they have released various espresso machines that boast technical innovation, such as the Nuova Simonelli Oscar, one of its most popular espresso machines.
For an espresso machine that costs under $1,000, you already have a high quality heat exchanger espresso machine that can make great cups of espresso and cappuccino, and you may not need to buy another espresso machine again.
Don’t let the plastic housing of the Oscar machine fool you, underneath all that plastic is a very sturdy and sensibly designed build with heat shields that prevent the plastics from burning up.
