The technology of home espresso machines is getting more impressive every day. It’s becoming much easier to concoct your own professional quality latte in the comfort of your kitchen – which, depending on the espresso machine, involves little work (you may still have to use a separate grinder, tamp the grounds, steam/froth the milk etc.) It’s not hard to imagine why home espresso machine users are multiplying.
However, there is one single reason for Canada’s coffee connoisseurs to continue flocking to their local café, day after day. Many are simply uninterested in all the added steps required to make their own cappuccino. For some, it’s still preferable to drive to the coffee shop where a skilled barista can provide their caffeine fix.
While it’s true that there are still some home espresso machines that demand patience (and for you to do most of the legwork), many super-automatic espresso machines have eliminated those extra steps entirely – perfectly pairing convenience with quality.
Deal Breakers for Espresso Machine Skeptics
Although even semi-automatic espresso machines are equipped with desirable features that make home espresso creation an attractive concept to many – others aren’t so easy to please.
For espresso machine veterans, using a separate grinder may not seem like much of a hardship. However, to many beginners and those with tight schedules, time, convenience and user-friendly features are of high value – sometimes it’s well worth their money to have a professional pull the shots. As well, many still value this ritual as a special treat – an enjoyable part of their day that they look forward to. This is understandable. But what if you were able to indulge in the luxury of having your morning beverage made right before your eyes, by a sophisticated machine that takes most of the work off your hands?
The Best of Both Worlds
Many of today’s super-automatics are specially designed with the busy, espresso-fanatic-on-the-go in mind. This means that the espresso machine is often fitted with a built-in grinder, automatic tamper and sometimes even steams and/or froths your milk automatically while simultaneously pulling the shot(s). Essentially, with a super-automatic espresso machine, your only job is to fill your machine with the best beans in your arsenal. Many even allow you to customize your beverages, as well as connect to your smart device – taking convenience to the next level.
What makes these machines so special is their intelligence, and their ability to do it all – provide quick, convenient espresso that screams café quality. No longer is it easier (or more satisfying) to head over to your beloved coffee house.

I love our Monte Carlo espresso machines! From the great Barista friendly design, the stable power and pressure that it delivers to extract the perfect shot even in super high volume production times, the ease of steaming micro-foamed milk and the reliability that with simple cleaning and maintenance we will not have any down-time. This machine also looks great on the front counter with the low profile design that allows our staff to engage with the customer as they craft their drink.
We are extremely happy with the performance of the WMF1500S Espresso machine!
The ease of automation, cleaning, lack of maintenance and durability is far superior to the Franke we had here before! I would highly recommend this model to other GM's in our company.
I had to service my JURA for the first time after more than 4 years.
The staff told me about the flat fee and that the unit will be ready within the next 2 days. 24 hours later the JURA was ready for pickup!
It is running great since. Perfect service, friendly staff and knowledgeable technicians.
It was great to have you onsite and oversee the café start-up, provide training and share recommendations to improve the offering.
The juice offering is clearly very successful and glad to see that our ideas came into a reality. We love both ZUMEX machines, the Essential & MultiFruit!
Thanks so much for your help with this Schaerer Espresso machine. I really am privileged to have such awesome peeps in my corner! Thanks again so much! Till Next Time!
