Types of Automatic Espresso Machines

Though you might already know the differences between a semi and a fully-automatic espresso machine, still, many people get circled around this!

Please note that a drip coffee maker with grinder does not come under the super-automatics. Many novice coffee people mix this all and create more confusion for themselves.

Semi-Automatic

With the rise of espresso, these machines were introduced to provide consistent temperature water for brewing an espresso shot. It uses a pump, and the brew cycle has to be manually controlled- On and Off. The user still has to grind, fill the portafilter, tamp and press the button to pull the shot.

It is preferred by consumers searching for an espresso machine that balances the ease-of-use and practicality with a more personal touch. However, it can be a bit confusing for first-timers. It takes practice to brew perfectly through a semi-automatic.

Fully-Automatic

The next level of espresso machines where the brew cycle is controlled automatically so there is less scope of error and consistent shots are pulled with the same temperature consistency and length of the brew cycle. However, the grinding, portafilter filling, and tamping are still the responsibility of yours.

Super-Automatic

What really distinguishes this from others is the ease of use and Bean-to-Cup function. With a super-automatic espresso machine, you just have to fill the beans or grounds into the hopper and press 1 or 2 buttons. The machine then takes care of all hassles and outputs the amazing drink.

Grinding, tamping and pulling the shot is the machine’s responsibility. The person in charge here doesn’t have control over the variables now and there is no manual scope of work. Some models come with customization options. So, if you’re not a control freak and want a hassle-free espresso, there is no better option than this.

So here, we will be talking mostly about the last type, which is Super Automatics. With time, the scope of Fully-automatics has merged with the Super-automatics as most machines in both categories come with built-in grinders. So, if you are looking for a Semi-automatic, we suggest reading our article about espresso machines or else move to our next section about the best picks.

Our first entry-level machine is by Mr. Coffee, which is both the most affordable and easy-to-use machine.

Buying Guide – Things To Consider

As the name implies, these gizmos can effortlessly perform the tasks of brewing the finest espresso coffee with a press of a button. You’ll be surprised about what they can do if you are switching from a traditional drip coffee maker.

Below are some important things to consider when deciding about buying one. These suggestions will surely help you in bringing the right coffee companion at home.

The Brand

Brand reputation has a big role if you are the first time buyer. If the name is a trusted one and has good solid customer feedback, it simply means it’s trust-able. While if a brand doesn’t have good feedbacks then you might be doing an experiment. As you are buying a super espresso, a wrong decision can burn a very big hole in your pocket.

The Grind

Most of these units come with built-in grinders. This feature ensures you get a fresh shot of espresso whenever you want it. The machine grinds only the amount of beans instantly required for your drink. Many of these allow easy adjustment of grind settings to make the flavor exactly how you want it.

Steam or Pump Powered

The pump-driven espresso makers are the best because they are equipped with separate systems that generate the required pressure and control water temperature. Even though steam-powered espresso makers are affordable, their presence in markets is diminishing with time.

Boiler System – Single or Double

Espresso machines with a single boiler system are equally effective as a double boiler system, with the latter one offering additional benefits such as more accurate heating capability, etc. However, it all comes down to your budget. It is because a single boiler system is less expensive than a dual boiler.

If you are willing to spend a bit extra, it is always better to choose the one that comes with some enhanced features.

Features

Below are a few features to care about when thinking about Buying the best automatic machine:

  • Drink Options: An automatic can make more than just a simple espresso. Given that these machines are equipped with milk frothing functions, you can prepare various custom-milk drinks with a simple push of a button.
  • Bypass Doser: While a doser is a must for an espresso machine, it is best if you purchase a unit equipped with an additional feature of a bypass doser.
  • Direct Tap Water Connection: Even though there are machines that come with a direct tap connection, it is still recommended to use bottled water. Most commercial espresso machines are equipped with this feature.
  • Programmable Options: This allows us to control a few things such as grind size, temperature, descaling cycle, brewing options, shot strength, etc.
  • Frother: Espresso machines either come with manual steam wands or automatic milk frothers. Given that the manual steam wand is difficult to use, it is recommended you should buy the one that has an integrated milk frother.
  • Types of Drinks: Do have a check on the number of drinks that can be made and compare it with the ones you need. Most of these can make Espresso coffee, Doppio, Americano, Latte, Cappuccino, Lungo, Ristretto, Mocha or Macchiato.
  • Milk Storage: Almost all automatic machines come with a slim detachable milk carafe that can be stored in the fridge. So, there are no issues with milk storage with these machines. Check for this option as it is a handy one.
  • Plumbing: If you find it cumbersome especially in the morning to fill the water tank, again and again, look for this option. This feature allows connecting tap to the machine and it can input as per the requirements.
  • Water Filters: This will reduce your risk of spoiling the taste of the coffee. With in-built coffee filters, you don’t have to worry about the impurities.

Water Reservoir

These machines are best at providing convenience to users. That’s why they have large water tanks installed to ensure there are minimal refilling trips. This machine can easily prepare 7-10 or more cups.

Size of Machine

Ever thought of where you are going to place this new coffee machine? If not, then do pay attention to this as many people skip this step. These espresso makers are quite a bit larger and can take up extra counter space.

The Interface (Easy or Complicated)

The interface of some super automatics is easy to maneuver, but it cannot be denied that first-timers will find it a bit difficult to use. However, each machine comes with a user manual that explains how to use the machine.

Maintenance & Cleaning

There are some machines from renowned brands that come with the feature of removing a brew group. This enables the user to manually inspect, remove, and clean the major mechanism of the machine.

And then there are other machines from brands that do not come with the feature of removable brew groups; instead, they depend on the automated cleaning cycle. In these machines, either indicator lights or message on the digital display is used to indicate when it is the right time to clean the brew groups.

Many of the machines might look fascinating but do ask about cleaning and maintenance. Most of these come with a self-cleaning system. This feature is a huge time saver and is a must for every super-automatic espresso machine.

Price

When it comes to buying an automatic espresso maker, look at it as an investment. These machines pack great features and convenience. There are options under $1000 range, but it’s recommended that you should look for the quality without worrying too much about price. Obviously, luxury comes at some cost and if you have made the decision to buy one, let it be not the compromised one!
