Nuova Simonelli is an Italian company specializing in the production of professional coffee machines. Its history began back in 1936, with a small family craft enterprise. Back in that days its owner Orlando created his first coffee machine and called it "1936".
Since 1950, the Simonelli company has been producing its own branded coffee machines of the "Selene" series. It was a technical breakthrough of that time; the Selene model was the first coffee machine equipped with a hydraulic pump.
Nowadays, Nuova Simonelli coffee machines consistently occupy the leading position in the luxury segment. Moreover, it is the official sponsor of the International Barista Championship.
