What are Super Automatic Espresso Machines?
Automatic espresso machines sacrifice some of the barista’s control in exchange for increased consistency and user-friendliness. On an automatic espresso machine, the barista chooses when to start espresso extraction, but the machine itself will stop automatically at the appropriate time.
On Traditional machine types, baristas must still manually grind espresso beans, tamp the grounds, and froth milk. Super automatic machines take over all these steps for you. With a super automatic model, just choose the drink you want, and the machine will grind, tamp, brew, and steam milk for you.
How Do I Choose the Right One?
There are two versions of Super Automatic models ..
The 1 Step that produces drinks from the touch of a drink selection on the keypad for both espresso and milk based like Cappuccino. This model needs a cold milk source, and the completed drink comes through the dispensing head.
Then there is the 2 steps where the coffee comes from a drink selection on the keypad for espresso through the dispensing head and the milk is steamed in a pitcher with an automatic steam wand.
Picking the best super automatic espresso machine for your particular business is a detailed process. There are several aspects you should consider, such as the following topics:
- Your budget
