The Best Automatic Coffee Machines

To choose the best automatic coffee machines on the market, we must first be clear about what a domestic automatic coffee machine is. First of all, we must identify that the concept of an automatic coffee machine is not exclusive to espresso machines or capsule machines. That is another division and a different idea.

There are both manual and automatic capsule machines, and there are both manual and automatic express machines. For example, in the case of the Dolce Gusto coffee makers, you can see the difference here: Dolce Gusto manual or automatic? Or in this other article you can consult which is the best manual express coffee maker on the market.

What is a domestic super-automatic coffee machine?

We can classify a machine as an automatic coffee machine if it takes charge of stopping the preparation of the coffee at the right moment according to the intensity or volume (specifications that we have previously configured for it). In other words, a coffee machine is automatic if the user has to start the process of making the coffee, but not worry about stopping it.

In manual coffee machines, the user must start and stop the preparation of the coffee to obtain more or less coffee, or of greater or lesser intensity. It’s the disadvantage that you may suffer forgetfulness and in the best of cases, make your cup overflow, or spoil the coffee by overwatering it.

Besides, we distinguish the super-automatic domestic coffee machines as opposed to the “professional” ones, that have a similar operation, but with much more capacity, more size, and logically higher price.

One-Touch super-automatic coffee machines: Qualities

The automatic coffee machines allow a higher speed and comfort to the user in the moment of elaborating the coffee, but sometimes they also prevent all the customization that the most demanding coffee growers and baristas demand.

Usually, an automatic coffee machine (both express and capsule) is more expensive than a manual one, because it includes more technology. For example, automatic espresso machines often include a grinder to use bean coffee and grind it at the same time you prepare your drink.

To elaborate our ranking of the ten best automatic coffee machines, we have based ourselves on objective criteria, but also personal tastes, trying to ponder equally the benefits of the coffee machine, its quality-price ratio, etc.

Logically, the market for automatic coffee machines is extensive, and this list does not necessarily have to coincide with other people’s tastes. Even so, we believe that this guide can serve as a reference for those users who are looking for information to buy their first automatic coffee machine and don’t know where to start.

We have decided not to order or establish which is the best automatic coffee maker, because we consider that they all have a large number of common characteristics, and only the small differences or details are the ones that can tip the balance towards a particular model or cause a specific automatic coffee maker to be the one that best adapts to a person’s needs.

We can make special mentions to some models, such as the Cecotec Power Matic-ccino 7000 or the Delonghi ECAM 22.110, which stand out for their quality-price ratio, but it is better to open the range of options and let each consumer decide.

We advise you to evaluate all the models in detail (the links we provide are those of our complete analysis) and then decide for yourself depending on what you have read in the reviews, or personal factors such as aesthetic taste or the budget you have.
