The Prontobar is a high-performance machine, without being bulky. Since space “is not an option” great care has gone into limiting size while preserving features and brewing technology.


Simplicity is a much sought-after quality in super-automatic machines. In fast paced environments, every employee needs to be able to use the equipment to its full potential without difficulty. Due to this, we have designed the Prontobar to be operated using only one of the 6 buttons.

Designed Durability

Every espresso machine needs maintenance at one point or another, often times this can become a complex process that leads to downtime. However, with the Prontobar, our designers focused on intelligent design, making even the most complex maintenance as quick as possible.


The Prontobar is made up of a plethora of features, settings, and high-performance parts to deliver a meaningful experience.

  • With the introduction of the new pump on the Prontobar it delivers quiet operation during delivery and increasing productivity. The pump also allows the Pentobar to optimize the texture of the crema, as well as the dispensed volume.
  • Prontobar has a metal thermo-compensated delivery group that guarantees maximum precision for temperature control leading to consistent quality. Furthermore, refining the shape of some group components ensures improved operability and durability.
  • The grinders are made with new technology and special types of steel, so they last longer. They are manufactured to be robust ensuring effective grinding and they are designed to be sufficiently flexible to absorb operational vibrations.
  • The electronic Prontobar is improved with new features that provide greater control of the movement of the group and make it even easier to maintain.

  • The Prontobar hosts 6 different drink buttons all of which can be reprogramed to the drink of your choice, insuring a variety of choices.
  • The control panel can be configured to produce specific drinks, making reassigning buttons an easy and intuitive process
  • Using the LCD display one can program the dose, brewing temp, steam temp, and group temp.
  • The automatic washing program saves time especially at the end of a workday.
  • The machine’s automatic on-and-off time setting along with a standby function saves energy and the planet.
  • Setting the tamping force has never been easier using the display.

Why choose Nuova Simonelli?

Orlando Simonelli made his first coffee machine in 1936, and ever since then the company that he created has been at the forefront of Italian culture and manufacturing. Such is their standing that since 2008 they have been a technical partner and official supplier for the World Barista Championships.

Known for their professional espresso machines, the company also produces a number of bean to cup machines, such as this one, all of which contain the passion, ingenuity and technological advancements typically associated with larger, traditional-style models.


Made by the world-renowned Italian manufacturers of high-end coffee machines Nuova Simonelli, the Prontobar is a superb bean-to-cup coffee machine that reliably delivers premium coffees with the minimum of fuss.

This is down to Nuova Simonelli’s commitment to quality. Only the best components are used to construct the Prontobar and it is only fitted with advanced features, some of which you would only normally associate with larger, traditional-style machines. One such example is the presence of a thermocompensated metal group head, a rarity for bean to cup units, which ensures stable and efficient brewing conditions for a better extraction.

Other brand new mechanisms include a redesigned steel grinder and a volumetric pump, both of which improve performance, and a USB slot that allows users to upload and save settings.

Usability is also key to the Prontobar's popularity: The machine’s subtle design attracts attention towards its operating panel, at the heart of which is a clear alphanumeric LCD display.

With six drink choices and a number of manual features (heated milk, hot water, and steam on demand etc.), creating your own range of specialty beverages couldn't be easier.

Thanks to its compact size, countertop design, and usability, the Nuova Simonelli Prontobar lends itself perfectly to a number of sites, including self-serve locations.
