Manual vs. Automatic Coffee Machines

Torn between a manual and an automatic coffee machine? It's a decision that can shape your coffee journey! That's why at JB, we offer a wide range of both, each with its unique features and benefits.

Let's break down the key features of these two types of coffee machines:

Manual Machines

  • Control: Manual machines give you full control. You can adjust every aspect, from tamping pressure to water temperature.
  • Skill Development: perfect for those who want to develop their barista skills and enjoy the process as much as the product.
  • Customisation: If you love experimenting, manual machines allow you to play with different beans, grinds, and techniques to create your unique cup of coffee.

Automatic Coffee Machines:

  • Ease of Use: If you're after convenience, just press a button and let the machine do the work.
  • Consistency: Automatic machines deliver a consistent taste every time, which is great for those who appreciate the same quality in every cup.
  • Speed: Automatic machines can whip up your daily brew quickly, making them a practical choice for a fast-paced lifestyle.

What To Look For When Buying a Manual Coffee Machine

If you’re ready to brew your best cup ever, getting the perfect manual coffee machine is the first step. Here’s a list of things you need to consider for a satisfying purchase:

  • Size and Kitchen Space: Match the machine's size to your available kitchen space. Compact models are great for limited spaces, while larger machines suit spacious kitchens.
  • Type of Coffee: Think about the coffee you love. Are you an espresso enthusiast, or do you enjoy a variety of coffee styles? Different machines cater to different coffee needs.
  • Build Quality: A well-built machine, like one made of stainless steel, not only lasts longer but also looks great in your kitchen.
  • Ease of Cleaning: Easy-to-clean machines make maintenance a breeze, essential for both the machine's longevity and the quality of your coffee.
  • Extra Features: Features like built-in grinders and milk frothers offer more coffee variety and convenience.
  • Budget: Balance your budget with the need for quality to find a machine that offers both value and performance.
