The Musica LUX is an Automatic 1 group espresso machine produced by Nuova Simonelli, Italy. It's a domestic machine (or low volume commercial) containing commercial grade components.
What is the Musica LUX?
The Musica LUX is a premium single group fully automatic espresso machine, designed for those looking for a high performance unit in a low volume space. It's a stand alone machine, meaning you require a separate espresso grinder to work alongside it. It's fully automatic, so espresso shots are programmed to the buttons and repeated removing the more manual aspect that you get in most domestic Rocket & La Marzocco domestic machines.
It contains a commercial grade 58mm group head, a dedicated / programable hot water dispenser and high grade stainless steel steam wand. It runs off an internal reservoir, so no requirement to connect to your mains water supply for operation.
What's an automatic?
Automatic control means that you program any of it's three buttons to dose an exact volume of fluid (espresso), in the exact same way that the majority of high quality commercial machines do. Once programmed the three independent dosages can be easily selected via the back-lit soft-touch buttons, found on the front of the machine. All of which can be dimmed and brightened to fit-in at any setting. This design gives you repeatability, without ever needing to second guess the accuracy of your espresso dose.
In addition to be able to automate coffee dosing, you can also program the hot water tap / dispenser to dose set volumes of hot water for other drinks such as Americano's or tea.
Who is it suitable for?
It's perfect for either home use, small offices or even a bar or restaurant. Due to it's programmable programs, it's perfectly suited to those looking for high quality coffee, without the hassle of trying to replicate great coffee manually.
How does it work?
The Musica contains an advanced heat exchanger design. This technology results in a fast heat up time and stable, separate temperatures for both brew and steam, allowing you to brew espresso and steam milk simultaneously.
This version runs from an internal reservoir only, (no mains water connection). The boiler and fresh water reservoir have microprocessor controlled, automatic level controls. This means water is automatically drawn from the reservoir into the boiler, plus it protects the boiler from burn out should the supply of water run out. The reservoir is easily accessed for refilling, just under the removable cup tray.
What's a good grinder pairing for the Musica?
Getting the right grinder pairing for your machine is key, so you can get the best out of your machine. In this case, we highly recommend the Eureka Specialita, as it matches the Musica for programmable doses, making it easy to use and repeatable. If you are looking for matching aesthetics, we offer the Specialita in both Tiffany Blue and Chrome, depending on your preference.
