Cosimo Libardo – Nuova Simonelli

It was a great honour to be present at the preview of the latest technology in espresso machines by Nuova Simonelli of Italy.

I had been invited by the national Mocopan Coffee team to meet down in Sydney at their head office and watch the presentation by Nuova Simonelli’s Managing Director, Cosimo Libardo, and WBC Champion 2002, Fritz Storm, in December.

The Nuova Simonelli team were showcasing the results of their successful World Barista Championship machine supply contract with the new Aurelia II T3 machine. The T3 machine is their latest project in striving for perfect temperature control in espresso brewing. The heat exchange machine challenged the theory of muliti boiler machines being much more superior in temperature delivery at the group head for the brewing process.

The T3 uses three points of contact for temperature control, that will revolutionise future espresso machine design. Nuova Simonelli won their partnership sponsorship after a lengthy trial period with WBC judges and baristas who were part of the deciding committee. This is their second stint as the official sponsors for this prestigious world coffee event, which has boosted their profile of a preferred industry supplier. Cosimo has been working closely with world champion baristas like Fritz, who accompanied him on this fleeting Australian visit of just four days. Fritz enjoyed his quick visit and was very impressed with our local market and the high interest in espresso technology. He will definitely be making a return trip to discover more about our interesting café culture.

Nuova Simonelli has been building espresso equipment for over 75 years and supply coffee and café equipment to over 100 countries. They are the preferred machine for Mocopan cafés.

Cosimo has been involved in major research projects into coffee trends around the world and is looking to places like Australia, which have a high focus on quality and training in their coffee culture. Australia is not leading the world in espresso machine sales, but we are very particular about machine quality and performance.

We look forward to seeing the T3 machine in cafés around Australia in the future and hope to see Cosimo visiting again soon.
