Super Automatic Comparison: Schaerer vs. Nuova Simonelli

Espresso Technician Nuova Simonelli Schaerer Super-Automatic Espresso Machines

Super-automatic espresso machines are machines that automate as much of the production of espresso-based beverages as possible. They are especially common in quick-serve revertants, airports, offices, drive-thru coffee shops, and other high volume environments. 

There are two types of super-automatic commercial machines: one-step and two-step. One-step machines automatically grind, tamp, extract espresso, and automatically steam and froth milk at the push of a button. Two-step machines do everything but the milk aspects of making drinks. A milk cooler is required for one step super automatics and is not required for two steps.

Below are we've compared our most popular super automatic espresso machines so that you can choose a machine that best suits your needs.
