What is the best coffee for fully automatic machines?
For the preparation of your coffee specialties with the fully automatic coffee machine, we recommend using strong, dark coffee beans because they develop their aromatic taste even with the relatively short extraction times in the coffee machine. Dark espresso roasts, which have been gently roasted for a long time in the drum roasting system, are usually the best choice here. Depending on your taste, you can choose between Arabica and Robusta beans. Most Robusta beans have a lower acid content, which is more suitable for preparation in the fully automatic machine. However, you can also use Arabica beans or a mixture of the two beans, it all depends on your taste.
Which coffee beans are not suitable for fully automatic machines?
So that your coffee specialties get an aromatic taste, we advise you to avoid light, acidic beans when preparing them in fully automatic coffee machines. Due to the short extraction time compared to other preparation methods, the beans cannot develop their full flavor in the fully automatic machine.
Which degree of grinding should be selected for fully automatic machines?
In addition to the choice of coffee beans, you can influence the taste of your coffee by adjusting the degree of grinding. For the preparation in the fully automatic machine, you should choose a fine grinding degree so that the water runs more slowly through the ground coffee. The right degree of grinding is crucial for the taste of your coffee specialties. If this is set too coarse, the coffee tastes sour. On the other hand, if your coffee tastes bitter, it is too fine and you should choose a coarser grind.
