What distinguishes a fully automatic coffee machine?
A fully automatic coffee maker is a machine that works fully automatically and makes coffee from roasted coffee beans and water using the espresso method. Unlike conventional filter coffee makers, fully automatic coffee makers are equipped with all kinds of technology, including an integrated grinder, a flow heater, a pump, and a brewing group with drive. By preparing under higher pressure, the aroma can develop better here. The machines are often used not only to prepare coffee, but also to froth milk, which is needed for special coffee specialties. fully automatic coffee machines are available both for home use and for commercial use. However, both variants can use the same coffee beans.

Which coffee varieties can be prepared in the fully automatic machine??
With the right coffee beans for vending machines, you can prepare a wide range of different coffees.
In principle, a fully automatic coffee maker is a practical all-rounder that can be used to prepare all kinds of coffee varieties. When it comes to classic coffee, the coffee from the fully automatic coffee maker can rather be compared with a cafe creme (less intense coffee with light crema) and a espresso lung (longer extracted espresso with more water) compare than with a filter coffee. So you get a coffee like in the cafe store next door, rather than the coffee from grandma’s filter coffee machine.
However, the fully automatic machine can show its full strength more with the well-known coffee specialties such as latte macchiato or cappuccino for example. These espresso-based coffee varieties are particularly quick and easy to prepare in a fully automatic coffee maker using good beans. Also the preparation of espresso itself is possible, although real espresso fans, however, do without the preparation of espresso in a fully automatic coffee machine and prefer a real espresso machine instead.
