The Difference Between Super-Automatic Espresso Machines and Semi-Automatic Espresso Machines
Coffee is a growing market segment. In fact, last year’s data from the National Coffee Association’s Coffee Drinking Trends for 2017 showed that consumption was up five percent from the previous year.
In large part, this trend is driven by demographics, but it’s also the result of operators looking for new ways to provide coffee service. From coffee kiosks in hospitals to high school coffee bars, operators who embrace coffee — and the equipment that can make coffee service easy — can help take advantage of this growing market segment.
Semi-Automatic Espresso Machines
Semi-automatic espresso machines make coffee delivery at the press of a button. Coffee beans must be ground in a separate grinder, when they can be through the brewing process. There’s more human control with a semi-automatic espresso machine, as the operator or barista will determine when a shot starts and stops.
Super-Automatic Espresso Machines
These pretty much do everything. Operators or home coffee enthusiasts who are looking for a single unit to grind, brew, and froth milk should consider the super-automatic option. Super-automatic espresso machines are all-inclusive.
The Benefits of Super-Automatic Espresso Machines
An automated coffee program can provide many benefits to an operation. Super-automated brewing delivers speed and quality that can meet or surpass traditional espresso service. Here are a few benefits of super-automatic espresso machines.
