Design combo: Nuova Simonelli MOOD&DUO

Nuova Simonelli

Nuova Simonelli is a company whose history dates back to the early 1930s. Since then, it has gradually developed into a trend-setting brand that has become a pioneer in the development of professional coffee machines.

But it wasn't just the third coffee wave that inspired Nuova Simonelli to focus on smaller machines that people would use at home or at work.

With so many quality coffee makers and grinders on the market these days, the engineers at Belforte del Chienti had to give their newly conceived home coffee maker and grinder pair something extra.

Know that what the Oscar Mood coffee maker and grinder Duo offers is not just a refined , novel design, but more importantly precision craftsmanship and well thought out features.

When you say home coffee machine, many of us probably think of a machine that should, with more or less help, produce something similar to the espresso or cappuccino we know from coffee shops.

But did you know that there are also coffee machines on the market that don't cost hundreds of thousands of crowns, and don't lag behind professional machines in quality? Oscar Mood is definitely one of them.

What does the Oscar Mood coffee machine look like?

TheOscar Mood is a design lever coffee machine in professional quality. At first glance, you will be impressed by its appearance, which is based on the "big" machines. It consists mainly of a mirror-polished stainless steel plate combined with accessories in one of 4 colours:

  • guacamole - avocado green
  • red - "Italian" retro red
  • taupe - a soothing, timeless colour between grey and brown
  • black - black, with nothing to add

We cannot fail to mention the luxurious 58mm wooden lever of the portafilter, which suits the coffee machine very well and fits perfectly in the hand.

The main features of the Nuova Simonelli Oscar Mood

Taking a closer look, we notice the control panel with display and 4 buttons with which everything can be programmed and controlled.

The coffee maker is ruled by volumetrics, which is a feature that allows you to set how long the water for each drink - single or double - will flow. So you don't have to keep an eye on the machine once you've started brewing. Use volumetrics to achieve consistent coffee quality.

Despite the fact that the coffee maker only takes 15 minutes to heat up, the 3 programmable on and off times make your life easier. Especially in the morning.

The milk frothing nozzle features "Cool Touch" technology . This takes the worry of scalding away.

What's inside the Oscar Mood?

If we were to look inside the Oscar Mood coffee machine, we would find a 2l single boiler with heat exchanger and PID for better temperature stability. And what is a PID?

The coffee maker works with a reliable vibrating pump standard for home coffee makers with a water tank, which in this case has a capacity of 3 l.

The overall design of the coffee machine is immaculately clean and solid. The weight of 13 kg suggests this, yet the coffee machine gives a very compact impression. And as mentioned in the introduction: the quality of workmanship is second to none with professional coffee machines.

TheNuova Simonelli Oscar Mood will thus not only be a stylish design addition to your home or office, but also a machine that most baristas would not despise.
