In addition to next-generation products, visitors will discover the most innovative technologies that the company, which is the official sponsor of the World Barista Championship (WBC) in 2014, has patented or produced for the pleasure of sharing with espresso professionals.

Finally, one is dedicated to the continued evolution of T3 technology, which has already been successfully used at World Barista Championship competitions in the Aurelia II coffee machine, which is much appreciated by the best baristas in the world.

Nuova Simonelli Technology Village: 5, discovering "Gravimetric Technology"

Gravimetric Technology 

There are five innovative technologies that will write the future of the world of coffee. These will be presented by Nuova Simonelli at the upcoming edition of HOST (Fieramilano Rho - 18-22 October 2013). At the "Technology Village" the company, which is the official sponsor of the World Championships for baristas 2009-2014, will establish a new concept for exhibitions in Hall 11 (C40/C48). Not only from the purely technical aspect but also practical application will be on show for many newly conceived coffee machines and grinders.
In addition to T3 Technology, Milk Silk Technology, Easy Cream Technology and Clima Pro Technology will be an absolute novelty in the field of professional coffee machines, Gravimetric Technology. This technology was developed by the Nuova Simonelli team after several years of research. With it the barista has absolute control of the output parameters. After stabilising extraction time and the exact dose of coffee with other technologies, Gravimetric attains the goal of an exact amount of coffee extracted. So with three parameters (time, dose and quantity in the cup) certain to be in an optimal range, the barista can be sure that the delivery is made perfectly and the quality of the espresso is guaranteed.
