Consumers Expect the Best When It Comes to Their Automatic Espresso Machine


Heading into 2022, today’s consumers are more demanding and less patient than ever. They are more digital, with higher expectations and unlimited access to a vast cross-section of information regarding products and services. Yes, these shoppers know what they want and where to get it. This is a basic principle of consumerism that transcends all sectors and industries – and is highly applicable to today’s thriving coffee culture and the industries that support it. So when consumers are looking for the best automatic espresso machine, what are some of the questions they ask and what does that process look like?

Whether you’re looking for a coffee system to keep up with the traffic in your bustling café, or you simply want to wake up every morning to the perfectly brewed, flavour-packed cup of coffee, there are certain basics that apply to all scenarios.

Among the many components to consider, one of the most important would be “programmability”. How much control do you want to have over the brewing process? There is a vast range of customization available in the automatic to super-automatic espresso machine field. You might want to control grind size, temperature or shot strength. On the other hand, lots of coffee enthusiasts prefer the “one and done” approach – select a program, press a button and voila! It’s much harder to mess it up and you’ll still brew a great cup of coffee.

Other considerations when looking for the best automatic espresso machine might be related to the milk steaming process. Many super-automatic espresso machines have automatic functions for steaming or frothing milk to make lattes, cappuccinos and more. However, some don’t, requiring you to use a traditional steam wand instead. Your choice of system will be impacted by how much time you wish to spend on steaming or frothing milk for your specialty beverages.

Before investing in an automatic espresso machine, you will want to carefully consider the differences in the capacity of the water tank, milk carafe and bean hopper – these features will determine how much espresso can be churned out without needing to be refilled. Obviously, if you plan on prepping beverages for large amounts of people, you will want to choose something with enough capacity.

At the end of the day, the best automatic espresso machines have something special about them – whether it’s their programmability, ease of use, capacity, striking design, engineering – and let’s not forget after-sales support, which is an important consideration to build into your quest for the best.
