Who Should Buy The Nuova Simonelli Appia II Compact? 

Small to Medium Coffee Shops

Creating minimal impact on space consumption, the Nuova Simonelli

Appia II Compact gives cafe owners with limited counter space the perfect solution.

Measuring only 21 inches high, 22 inches wide, and 22 inches long, it’s a powerful machine for cafes with continuous espresso drink orders to fill but little room to spare.

Meanwhile, the features are top-notch: raised group heads, cool-touch wands, soft infusion, automated cleanings, and more.

Small to Medium Restaurants

Restaurants are often searching for room for all the food and beverage service items and equipment as it is.

Since it’s so economical on space usage, the Appia II Compact can be tucked into a variety of locations as needed in a busy restaurant.

Offering superior espresso drinks, the Appia II Compact is every bit as robust as the other Appia II models, creating deluxe cappuccinos your customers will remember.

Small to Medium Offices

The Appia II Compact is ideal in an office providing delicious espresso drinks to a small to medium staff.

This machine is small but powerful, capable of producing espresso drinks as excellent as the ones from the coffee shop (this is a cafe-style commercial machine, after all).

If you’re searching for an espresso machine for the corporate office, the Appia II Compact will deliver the results you’re looking for.

Other Business with Low- to Medium-Volume Espresso Traffic

Many businesses that aren’t coffee-centric serve espresso beverages to clientele.

Whether you need a machine to make lattes for hotel guests or for spa clients, this model can provide everything you need.

It’s best for locations with low- to medium-volume espresso drink needs that don’t have the room for intrusive equipment.


The Appia II Compact is the machine for demanding professionals. 

Beautifully crafted espresso beverages without the bulk of a typical commercial espresso machine are now possible with the Nuova Simonelli Appia II Compact. 

This machine condenses the features of the Appia II into one perfectly efficient package. 

Reducing the width of this machine by nine inches allows the Appia II Compact to fit neatly and comfortably into any setting while maintaining two groups, two steam wands, and a hot water spout.



Staying true to the Appia II’s design, the Appia II Compact offers baristas the opportunity to craft high-quality espresso with soft infusion and superior microfoam with high-performance steam mechanisms.


Creator of World Barista Championship espresso machines, Nuova Simonelli is a brand with a stellar reputation.

Business owners can rest assured that the Appia II Compact makes quality accessible to everyone.

Key Features and What They Mean

7.5 Liter Copper Heat Exchange Boiler

With plenty of power for up to medium-volume businesses, this boiler makes simultaneous brewing and steaming for back-to-back drinks a snap. Copper, a heat conductor, lends energy efficiency as well as natural antimicrobial properties to make cleaning easier.

Easy Control Pad

The control pad comes with easy-to-operate buttons for dosing and hot water dispensing. The Volumetric model features programmable single and double volumetric buttons for automated brewing and guaranteed consistency. User-friendly manual buttons on both the Volumetric and Semiautomatic models make manually controlled extraction more intuitive.

Raised Group Heads

Fit tall cups right under the group heads of the Appia II Compact. This can improve the production pace by skipping brewing into shot glasses first. It will also help baristas to ensure a beautiful crema presentation on espresso shots and Americanos.

Cool Touch Wands

Froth milk and clean the steam wands with built-in safety precautions. Staying cool to the touch, the Appia II Compact steam wands also discourage milk from sticking, so cleaning is a much simpler task.

Push Pull Steam Triggers

Push-pull steam triggers are an ergonomic upgrade from turning steam valves. After long hours making lattes, your wrists will thank you.

Soft Infusion System

Nuova Simonelli’s soft infusion system prevents tamping errors from impacting the espresso. Espresso will be richer in flavor with perfect crema.

Automated Cleanings

As baristas know, end-of-day machine cleaning can be tedious. The auto cleaning cycles allow baristas to select the groups to be cleaned using the automated backflushing program, giving baristas more time to multitask.

Reverse Mirror

See the espresso in greater detail while it extracts in the backplate mirror on the machine. This will assist baristas in monitoring the espresso and performing quality control more effectively.

Bar Pump Gauge

Checking pressure profiles is simple with the proper gauges. The bar pump gauge shows how many bars of pressure are building during brewing, communicating to baristas vital information that informs their process.


Semiautomatic Appia II Compact

The Appia II Compact Semiautomatic is quite user-friendly, proving that semiautomatic models don’t have to be intimidating.

Using an on/off switch, the barista gets full control of the extraction time to craft original results from different coffee blends and single origin coffee.

If you’re looking for a hands-on experience and more control while handcrafting each espresso beverage, the Semiautomatic is for you. 

The internal components are designed to make this machine more than capable of delivering high-quality espresso, especially at the hands of an experienced barista. 

*Auto-Steam Wands are not available for this configuration.



Smart Wand Options

We offer the Auto-Steam Wand as an optional upgrade (on the Volumetric model only).

Select Volumetric with Autosteam above to order your machine with this upgrade.


The Auto-Steam Wand will replace one manual steam handle with a button. 

The advantage of Auto-Steam is that it requires no input from the barista. It will texture the milk perfectly with automated technology. 

Here’s how it works: The barista places the wand in the pitcher of milk, and the Auto-Steam Wand takes care of the rest.

Pod Kit Adapter

The Appia II Compact supports a standard pod kit adapter. 

We will install these left to right, unless a particular head is specified in the comment section while checking out. 

They can also be moved by the user with a screwdriver.

Color Options

The Appia II Compact comes in the default color Black unless otherwise specified above.

You can select Black, White, or Red upon purchase. These colors are available free of charge (see them below). 

If you would like your Appia II Compact in a custom color, please contact us directly.
