How Auto Can You Go?

So when it comes to “automatic” machines, you have a lot of options. The main thing that differentiates them is how much you are physically involved in the brewing process.

Basically, an automatic espresso machine allows you to start it, but it pulls the espresso shot for a preset amount of time. Some machines let you change that time; others do not.

For the most part, very few machines are marketed as simply automatic. This is because a lot of automatic machines look and feel like semi-automatics and have redundant features that make them nearly identical. Also, some automatic machines have little extras that put them nearly in the super-automatic category.


Semi-automatic machines are basically one step more involved than the “baseline” automatic. These allow you to control the grind setting as well as the pull time, giving you more direct influence over your final result.

Like automatic machines, these require you to grind and tamp your own grounds, which can be a blessing for people who want to experiment with their brew. However, it can be a little confusing if you’ve never done it before.

These machines are our personal favorites because they balance practicality and ease-of-use with customization and personal-touch. So, even though they aren’t fully automatic, we’ll include some of our top semi-automatic picks.

Barista Boss has a wide selection of semi-automatic espresso machines in stock and ready to be shipped!!  Don't forget we offer fast free shipping, price match guarantee, and zero sales tax on all orders.
