In the world of home espresso, the Nuova Simonelli Oscar is a bit of a legend. Designed with professional-calibre components, but housed in a kitchen-friendly plastic case, with a surprisingly small footprint, it's no wonder that it was the professional's choice for home espresso. The original Oscar was around for many years, but we're excited to say that there's now a new, upgraded option for espresso-lovers in SA which offers everything the previous version did and more.
The Oscar II is still based on the same principles - professional-quality components packaged for home use. However, it adds a number of features that the old Oscar did not have. With a stainless steel finish, programmable buttons as well as a few other helpful specs (see below), it's a significant step up as single-group machines go.
This newer Oscar packs even more power than its already impressive predecessor. You'll be amazed at how much pressure you'll get out of this little machine's steam wand, which has also been redesigned and lengthened to make it easier to use. If you're a discerning, espresso-loving home barista, we'd highly encourage you to consider the Oscar II.

A note on making espresso
We think it's important to note that making great espresso isn't as easy as pushing a button. Many professionals work for years to master the art and yet still find there is more to learn. A great shot or flat white requires practice & attention as well as good equipment & good coffee. With this machine, you have a solid foundation to work with, but you need to be prepared to invest the time & effort to learn to use it properly! If all you want is just a simple way to make a solid cup of coffee, you may want to check out our manual coffee makers instead.
