Espresso shotA super-automatic espresso machine performs all or almost all of the coffee brewing automatically. A super automatic espresso machine will automate the following operations that are typically performed manually by the barista:

The barista needs to fill the bean hopper and, or add water to a reservoir. Many models contain a seamlessly built-in automated milk frothing and dispensing device. Others provide a separate automated milk frothing device. Super-automatic espresso machines are great for shot consistency.

Many experienced baristas prefer the semi-automatic espresso machines because they allow more control over the brewing process. Some advanced super-automatics include options to tweak the brewing profile by increasing the tamping force, adjusting the water temperature, changing the grind size, the dose, or tweaking the extraction time.

Super automatic espresso machines are the choice of busy avenues because of their convenience and the beverage consistency. Preparing an espresso beverage with an automatic machine is faster and avoids human error associated with manual machines. Additionally, barista training is less complex, since espresso pulling requires some experience.
