The Difference Between Regular & Super-Automatic Espresso Machines

Both regular (semi-automatic) coffee machines and super-automatic espresso machines cater to different levels of user involvement and convenience in the coffee-making process. Semi-automatic espresso makers offer a balance between manual and automated functions, requiring users to grind the coffee, measure the right amount, and tamp it down. The water pressure is typically automated, but the user decides when to start and stop the extraction.

On the other hand, super-automatic espresso machines automate nearly every step. With the push of a button, they grind the beans, dose, tamp, and brew the coffee, often also frothing milk for lattes or cappuccinos. Essentially, while semi-automatics provide more hands-on control, super-automatics prioritize ease and consistency.

What You Should Look For In A Super Automatic Espresso Machine

We have identified 12 areas that you need to be aware of and which play a vital role in determining which super-automatic coffee machine will best suit your specific needs and we will look at these now.


Your budget is the first step in determining which bean-to-cup machine you can afford to purchase. Although premium models offer advanced features such as color touchscreens and a wider choice of programmable drinks, there are cost-effective models that provide good value without compromising on essential features.

Both the Gaggia Anima Prestige and the DeLonghi Magnifica Evo are in the budget category but still make excellent espresso.

Design and Build Quality

A super automatic coffee machine’s design will affect your kitchen aesthetics as they are large items that are hard to miss. Premium machines often boast stainless steel construction that gives a sleeker appearance than a plastic one.

Build quality ensures longevity – You may be fine with plastic, but a stainless steel machine may be more appropriate to your circumstances. Consider where you will use the machine and how many people will be using it. The more users, the greater the chance of scratches or of breaking the plastic parts.

Espresso Coffee Quality

The essence of a super-automatic espresso machine lies in its ability to produce barista-quality espresso. Factors like temperature stability and pressure consistency are crucial for extracting rich and flavorful shots. A dual boiler (dual-heating system) better controls temperature stability and recovery time than a single heating system.

super automatic coffee machine individual parts explained


An integrated grinder is essential for fresh coffee. Integrated grinders are typically made of stainless steel or ceramic and most in-built grinders now use flat or conical burrs instead of blades.

  • Ceramic grinders maintain bean integrity by preventing overheating, and are considered a little higher quality; while a stainless steel grinder will outlast a ceramic grinder, especially if you use it regularly.
  • Flat burrs tend to offer a more consistent result than conical burrs but are also noisier.

The number of grind settings is also important and you should pay attention to how many are available on your machine. Espresso is a subtle drink where minute changes in the grind size affect the extraction and flavor. 

More adjustable grind settings allow you to better fine-tune grind coarseness for your coffee brewing. Many coffee experts believe that inbuilt grinders are inferior to external grinders due to a larger number of adjustment settings typically available and the better quality of the burr.


Advanced machines offer customizable settings, from coffee strength to temperature. Greater programmability ensures each coffee drinker can match the coffee to their personal preferences.

A super-automatic coffee machine is easier to use than a manual or semi-automatic coffee maker. Since there is no risk of manual human error, you can get the perfect espresso with a press of a button. 

Not all super-automatic espresso makers are the same however. Some will allow you more adjustable settings, like grind, temperature and pressure. The range of adjustable options decides the control level you have over the coffee brewing process. The choice is yours whether you prefer to let the coffee machine complete the full process with a push of a button, or you prefer additional options, allowing for more control over your coffee.

Milk Frothing System

For lovers of milky coffee drinks like cappuccinos and lattes, an efficient milk frothing system is vital. Super-automatic espresso machines typically have one of two types of milk systems: a milk carafe or a steam wand. With the milk carafe, the machine does all the milk frothing work for you. All you have to do is press a button.

milk froth system gagglia babila
  • If a super-automatic coffee machine comes with an automatic milk frother using a carafe, you can create more drinks.
  • Some super-automatic espresso machines may have a steam wand when you steam the milk yourself, which is known as manual steaming.

Brew Group

The brew group is the center of the coffee maker where coffee extraction occurs. A removable brew group allows easy cleaning of coffee bean residue to maintain consistent espresso quality. With a removable brew group, you can easily rinse out this central part of the machine by hand to remove residue and so always brew with fresh beans.

Some automated espresso machines like the Jura range have a built-in brew group. As they have a self-cleaning program they are easy to maintain but if any repairs are needed, this may ne expensive.

Boiler Type

Super-automatic espresso makers typically use a thermoblock heating system which just heats the water required for an espresso shot. A dual-heating system (or boiler) rather than a single system will allow you to extract coffee and steam milk at the same time, enhancing efficiency. Espresso machines with just a single boiler typically need a 30 or 40 second wait between extraction and steaming.

Operating Interface

A user-friendly interface ensures seamless operation. Touchscreens and intuitive button layouts enhance user experience, making drink selection and customization straightforward.

As the whole purpose of a super-automated espresso machine is to make quality espresso easily, you should pay attention to whether the touchscreen and buttons are responsive and the menus straightforward to understand.

operating interface

Bean and Water Tank Capacity

Larger capacities reduce the frequency of refills, ideal for heavy users or households. Reducing refills means less use of any moving parts which is better for the longevity of the machine. Transparent tanks also allow for easy monitoring of levels.


Regular maintenance ensures machine longevity and consistent coffee quality. Machines with automated cleaning cycles and descaling alerts simplify upkeep. Give consideration if it is you rather than the machine who will need to descale, empty the drip tray or purge the steam wand.

Drink Options

Some super-automatic espresso machines can make more espresso drinks than others. You can choose between machines that can make only simple beverages, like americano or as espresso, or ones that can serve ten or more coffee drinks. As previously mentioned, if the super-automatic espresso machine has an automatic milk frother, you can make more drinks.

Gaggia Anima Prestige

This single boiler espresso machine ensures hygiene with its “Milk Circuit Quick Clean” feature, automatically cleaning the frother.

The ceramic flat burr grinder, a staple in Gaggia’s super-automatic espresso machines, grinds the beans with 5 grind settings, giving some control over the espresso quality.

The hands-free frothing mechanism blends milk and air, producing thick foam ideal for cappuccinos. The milk carafe can be detached for rinsing or refrigeration with the cleaning in the LatteGo system, straightforward due to the absence of tubing that prevents milk curdling.

The 3200 LatteGo features an intuitive display offering five coffee drink choices and accepts pre-ground coffee. Customization options include shot volume, temperature, grind size, brew strength, and water volume. The 3200 Series also has an aroma seal to maintain bean freshness and a removable brew group for easy cleaning.

The machine boasts a ceramic flat burr grinder with 12 grind settings, which is excellent at this price point for adjusting a range of coffee bean coarseness for good espresso quality. Philips also guarantees the grinder’s longevity, which is rated for brewing up to 20,000 cups.

For ongoing maintenance, the AquaClean filter ensures that users can enjoy up to 5,000 cups before needing to descale, making it a more hygienic coffee machine than many of its competitors.

We should note that the machine’s grinder and milk frothing system can be quite loud, which might be disruptive for early morning brews or late-night coffee cravings. The machine is also only available in black which may not be the most aesthetic finish for higher-end kitchens.
