Post A Super Automatic Espresso Machine Makes Super Espresso
A Super Automatic Espresso Machine Makes Super Espresso
by: Mike Andrews

At the the top of the list of types of espresso makers is the "super automatic espresso machine". They should rename the category the "super-awesome super automatic espresso machine" because that more accurately describes these wonderful dispensers of caffeinated deliciousness.

Perfect Espresso at the Touch of a Button

Once you have filled the water reservoir and placed your favorite roasted whole coffee beans in the hopper there's not much more to do but push a button and Voila! your machine does the rest--automatically. It will automatically grind your whole coffee beans for you; it'll place the exact quantity of coffee grounds in the brew group--based on your flavor and strength preferences; it will perfectly tamp down the ground coffee; it will heat the water to the precise temperatures that you have pre-set; it will brew the espresso using the quantity of water that you've programmed; finally, it will brew your coffee or espresso to the precise specifications that you had programmed--your individual, ideal cup of coffee. One last point it does automatically--after brewing it will place the used grounds in the dump box! All automatically!

You Can Become a DIY Barista

More individuals nowadays are thinking twice prior to spending $4 for their daily cappuccino or latte, and are choosing instead to make their own espresso drinks at home for mere pennies per drink. Nevertheless, they have developed a taste for a well brewed espresso drink and are not willing to give up the flavor and aromas that they have become used to. Is this an Issue? Not any more. Thanks to today's nicely designed, engineered, and crafted European espresso machines the home barista can make a latte or a macchiato every little bit as great, and maybe even much better, than at Starbucks.

There are many, many different completely automatic espresso machines on the market nowadays, coming from a range of manufacturers, and they're not all of the same high quality, and the price range is quite broad. This can result in a bit of confusion whenever you are attempting to select the very best machine for your budget and for your personal requirements.

Following is a brief summary of features that may be found on an espresso machine that fall into the "super automatic" class:

Water Measurement Control

This feature allows you to select and control the amount of water to be used to brew your coffee, depending, for example, on whether you you want a strong cup of coffee or a weaker cup of coffee.


This programmable function eliminates the wait around time for more beans to be ground before you can make your subsequent shot of espresso by grinding beans and placing them within the brew group while you are still making your first shot.

Pre-Moistening the Ground Coffee

This function will slightly pre-moisten the grounds just prior to brewing. This enables the aromatic and flavorful oils to start leaching from the coffee.

Temperature Control

Some people like their coffee to be served a bit cooler than others. Please note that espresso is typically brewed at a lower temperature than regular drip coffee.

Adjustable Dosing

This feature will allow you to manage the flavor and strength of your drink by increasing or decreasing the amount of ground used in a shot.

Cup Warmer

A shot of espresso will probably be a lot better should you brew it directly right into a warm cup. Espresso coffee is brewed at a lower temperature than the temperatures at which drip machines brew. If you brew an espresso right into a cold cup your espresso may be too cool to enjoy.

Water Filtration Systems

This feature is really excellent because your coffee will taste a lot better if you're able to remove chlorine and minerals from the water. Only Jura-Capresso includes a built-in water filtration system.

Grinder Settings

Customizing the grind of your coffee beans is another way that you are able to adjust the taste and strength of your espresso drinks. Should you grind too fine your coffee will be bitter; too coarse and your coffee will most likely be weak.

Bypass Doser

It's a really convenient feature in that it allows you to make a cup of coffee using other than the coffee beans currently within the hopper. If you have a guest that would choose decaf but your hopper is full of espresso beans, you're able to merely pour pre-ground decaf coffee into the bypass doser and brew a cup of decaf.

Double Boiler System

This feature eliminates the typical wait time in between brewing and frothing (which allows your just brewed espresso to cool off) that occurs with single boiler machines. With two boilers at the ready you're able to begin frothing your milk immediately following your brewing, without waiting. This means that you will appreciate your espresso drinks, lattes, cappuccinos, and machiatos, at the temperatures at which they were intended to be served.

Digital or Liquid Crystal Display

The digital or liquid crystal display will show you in plain English what is going on using the machine, as well as what needs to be done, like adding water, adding beans, or emptying the dump box.

You'll Get What You Pay For

Higher priced super automatic espresso machine will frequently include all of these features; lower priced machines will include fewer. The more features included will cost more; the fewer functions included will cost less. Don't be fooled by lower priced machines that seem to be feature-rich. Generally speaking they will not be made as well, will need service more often, won't last as long, and most importantly, they won't create a very high quality shot of espresso. Purchasing a cheaper, lesser quality machine usually ends up costing you more in the long run, and you won't be enjoying espresso drinks like you ought to be.
