Appia Life

Suitable for: Small footprint areas with Medium – High volume locations, demanding professionals.
The Appia Life builds on the success of the Appia, further pushing the limits of the already proven espresso machine. It is a machine of high productivity and high performance. Combined this with its proven reliability and modern style make it the ideal machine for any room.

20% Less Energy: A Life Cycle Assessment study found the Appia Life consumes 20% less energy than the Appia II. This reduction is possible due to the new thermal system, optimization of mechanical components, and the addition of DRYTEX insulation.
Semi Automatic: The Appia Life semiautomatic is our basic model of the Appia Life series. While it may lack in some technical features, this machine is more than capable of delivering high quality espresso, especially at the hands of a well-trained barista. Being a semiautomatic the machine is in complete control of the barista during the extraction processes requiring them to both start and end it.
Volumetric: The Appia Life Volumetric is the ideal machine for baristas looking for amazingly consistent coffee. Being volumetric this machine allows baristas to program desired volumes and consistently pull shots at that volume throughout the day. Because the barista no longer has to monitor each and every shot, they are given precious time to interact with customers or perhaps begin another order. Making this machine ideal for a number of shops and setups.
Volumetric XT: For the first time, the Appia Life now has the option to come with a digital display screen. This screen allows for easier dose programming, the ability to view shot timers and steam pressure, an easier to access cleaning cycle, shot counters, and software settings.
Autosteam: This modification replaces the manual steam handles with a button. The barista can simply place the curved wand in the pitcher of milk and the Gooseneck Autosteam will heat up to, and shut off at, the correct temperature. We recommend that the barista moves the pitcher to texture the milk. This wand includes the Cool Touch technology which prevents skin burns and milk from burning onto the wand.
