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 is the professional's choice for home espresso. The original Oscar's been around for many years, and is still available as a great home barista machine, but we're excited to say that there's now a new, upgraded option for espresso-lovers in SA.

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, that make it more than worth the small price difference. 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. If you're a discerning, espresso-loving home barista, we'd highly encourage you to consider the Oscar II. Fill in the contact form on this page to make an enquiry or place an order!

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.
