From the type of beans – whether Arabica or Robusta – to the freshness and quality of the beans to the right roasting. All these aspects play a crucial role in the ultimate coffee experience. In the world of coffee, there is a wide range of varieties and blends to suit every taste. Whether you are a coffee lover who prefers the intense flavor of Robusta beans or someone who appreciates the subtle flavor aromas of Arabica beans, the selection is vast. And it is precisely this variety that makes the search for the best coffee beans for fully automatic machines an exciting journey. In this article, we will embark on this journey together. We will test different types of coffee, take a closer look at the best brands for fully automatic coffee machines and give tips for the perfect coffee enjoyment. Whether you’re an experienced coffee connoisseur or just discovering the world of coffee for yourself, you’ll find all the information you need to find the best coffee for your fully automatic machine. So, get ready for an aromatic journey into the fascinating world of coffee. An unforgettable taste experience awaits you! Why is choosing the right coffee so important? Choosing the right coffee for your automatic coffee maker is crucial to the enjoyment you get from each cup. The coffee you choose determines the aroma, taste and quality of the cup of coffee you will enjoy. It’s not just about the bean or the roast, but about the perfect harmony between all these elements that makes the perfect coffee. Bean quality First of all, the beans are the heart of your coffee. Arabica and Robusta are the two main types of coffee beans available on the market. Arabica beans are known for their sweeter, more complex flavors, while Robusta beans offer a stronger, earthier profile with higher caffeine content. The choice between Arabica and Robusta depends on your personal preferences. In addition, the quality of the beans plays a decisive role. A quality coffee is made from high quality, carefully selected beans. Fresh The freshness of the beans is another decisive factor. Freshly roasted beans contain the full flavors and oils that make a coffee truly outstanding. Once the beans are roasted, they begin to oxidize and lose their flavor over time. Therefore, it is important that you always use fresh beans for your coffee machine. Grinding degree The grind is equally important for the quality of your coffee. Different coffees require different grinds. For example, an espresso requires a finer grind than a filter coffee. The right grind ensures that the water flows through the coffee powder at the right pace to extract all the flavors and oils. So choosing the right coffee for your automatic coffee maker can make the difference between an average cup of coffee and an excellent one. With the right knowledge and a little experimentation, you can find and enjoy your perfect coffee. What distinguishes a good coffee? A good coffee can be a real taste experience that awakens your senses and makes the start of the day special. But what makes a coffee really good? There are several factors that help define a good coffee. Taste Taste, of course, is the first thing to consider in a good coffee. A good coffee should have a balanced taste, neither too bitter nor too sour. The best coffees have a variety of flavors that can range from fruity to chocolatey, nutty to caramel. The taste can also be influenced by the type of bean and roasting. Arabica beans, for example, tend to have a sweeter and softer taste, while Robusta beans often have a stronger, earthier flavor. Aroma Aroma is another important factor that makes a good coffee. A good coffee should have a pleasant and inviting aroma. The aroma of a coffee can be an indicator of its quality. Freshly roasted and ground beans often have a stronger and more pleasant aroma than older or pre-ground beans. A good aroma can really enhance your coffee experience and increase the enjoyment of each cup. Texture The texture or mouthfeel of the coffee also plays a role. A good coffee should have a pleasant texture that is neither too thin nor too thick. Texture can be influenced by a number of factors, including the type of beans, the grind, and the preparation method. For example, a well-prepared espresso may have a rich, creamy texture, while a filter coffee often has a lighter texture. Which coffee beans are the best for fully automatic machines? Choosing the right coffee beans for your fully automatic machine is crucial for the taste of your coffee. There are essentially three types of coffee beans you should consider for your fully automatic machine: Arabica, Robusta and blends. Arabica Arabica beans are the most common type of coffee beans. They are known for their sweet and mild taste and rich aroma. Arabica beans are well suited for fully automatic machines, as they offer a balanced and pleasant taste that appeals to most coffee drinkers. Robusta Robusta beans have a stronger and earthier flavor than Arabica beans. They also contain more caffeine. Robusta beans can be a good choice for fully automatic machines, especially if you prefer a stronger and fuller-bodied coffee. An example of a high-quality Robusta coffee for fully automatic machines is “The Godfather”. With its flavor of dark chocolate, caramel and walnut, it is a strong and full-bodied coffee that will surely delight you. Mixtures Blends are a combination of different types of coffee beans and can provide a diverse taste experience. A good blend can take advantage of the strengths of each coffee bean and deliver a balanced and complex flavor. A great example of such a blend is the “Emma Forte” , a wonderful composition with coffees from different plantations. With its taste of walnut, chocolate and toffee, it is a real treat for any coffee lover. We offer a wide range of coffee beans that are ideal for fully automatic machines. These include the “Anniversary Espresso No. 101,” the “Felix – The House Blend” and the fully automatic coffee machine set incl. 4x 250g espresso. You can order them directly in the online store. The ideal coffee beans for fully automatic machines The ideal coffee bean for your fully automatic machine depends on a number of factors, including freshness, quality and roasting. All these aspects influence the taste and aroma of your coffee. Fresh The freshness of the coffee beans is crucial for the taste of your coffee. Freshly roasted beans are usually at their best within a month of roasting. Once the beans are roasted, they slowly begin to lose their flavor. Therefore, it is important to keep your coffee beans as fresh as possible. It’s best to buy your beans from a reputable roaster who roasts them just before shipping to ensure maximum freshness. Quality The quality of the coffee beans is another important factor. High-quality beans usually come from carefully tended plants grown in ideal climatic conditions. These beans provide a richer and more complex flavor than their inferior counterparts. When buying coffee beans, look for high quality beans to get the best taste and aroma. Roasting The roasting of the coffee beans also affects the taste of your coffee. Roasting brings out the flavors in the beans and influences their taste. A lighter roast is more likely to bring out the natural flavors of the bean and may have fruity or citrus notes. A darker roast, on the other hand, may bring out more chocolaty or nutty flavors. The ideal roast for your fully automatic machine depends on your personal taste. Experiment with different roast levels to see which one you like best. Organic coffee beans from fair trade One of the most important aspects of choosing the perfect coffee for your fully automatic machine is the quality of the coffee beans. But quality means not only excellent taste and aroma. It is also about ethical and sustainable practices used in the production and trade of coffee beans. Importance of fair trade Fair trade is a trading approach that aims to provide producers in developing countries with better trading conditions and promote sustainability. Coffee beans that carry the Fair Trade seal guarantee that coffee farmers receive a fair price for their produce and work under safe and fair working conditions. Erste Tegernseer Kaffeerösterei attaches great importance to transparency, sustainability and traceability. All coffees in our range are fairly produced, traded and refined. Advantages of organic beans In addition to fair trade, organic farming also plays an important role. Organic coffee beans are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. This is not only better for the environment, but also results in a cleaner and fuller coffee taste. A good example of organic coffee from our range is the “Peru Finca Negrisa Typica washed BIO”. This coffee, with notes of milk chocolate, hazelnut and brittle, comes from Finca Negrisa, a family business in Peru that has over 15 years of experience and is a one-stop shop for the entire process from cultivation to processing, quality control and export. So if you’re looking for the best coffee beans for your fully automatic machine, consider both fair trade and organic beans. Not only will you notice the difference in taste, but you will also help make coffee production more sustainable and fair.

Coffee is a natural product, and as with many natural products, the taste of coffee varies depending on its origin, growing conditions and processing. One aspect that strongly influences the taste of coffee is its acidity. But why is the acid content in beans for espresso lower than for filter coffee? Acidity and taste The acidity of a coffee contributes to its overall flavor and should not be confused with the acrid acidity that sometimes results from improper preparation. In the coffee world, acidity is often considered positive and desirable, especially when it is well balanced and pleasant. It can make the coffee fresh, lively and exciting. Espresso beans usually have a lower acid content than beans for filter coffee. This is due to the fact that espresso is a concentrate and when it is prepared, the taste is intensified. High acidity could be perceived as unpleasantly sour in an espresso. Therefore, beans with lower acidity and higher body and sweetness are often used for espresso. Acidity and bean type The type of coffee bean also plays a role in acidity. Arabica beans, which are often used for filter coffee, have a higher acid content than Robusta beans. They bring a natural sweetness and a variety of flavors to coffee, including often citrusy or berry notes. Robusta beans, on the other hand, which are often included in espresso blends, have lower acidity and a stronger, earthier aroma. They contribute to the crema formation that is so characteristic of a good espresso and provide a fuller body that is often preferred when making espresso. However, it is important to note that acidity is also influenced by other factors such as the altitude at which the coffee is grown, soil conditions, bean processing and roasting. Ultimately, choosing the right coffee is a matter of personal taste. Coffee bean roasting degrees The degree of roasting of coffee beans has an enormous influence on the taste of the coffee. It determines how the flavors and characteristics of the beans are highlighted. A basic distinction is made between light, medium and dark roasts. Light roast Light roasts are also referred to as “light roast”. With this roasting, the beans are roasted only until they reach the “first crack” stage. This is the moment when enough moisture has evaporated from the beans that they begin to crackle. The beans have a light brown color and no oils on the surface. The flavor of a light roast is often more intense and the original flavors of the beans, which depend on the type of coffee and where it is grown, are more apparent. Light roasts often have a stronger acidity and may have flavors of fruits, berries or spices. Medium roast Medium roasts, also known as “medium roast,” are roasted to the “second crack” stage. They are medium brown in color and small amounts of oil may occasionally show on the surface. Medium roasts have a good balance of acidity, aroma and body. They retain some of the original flavors, but also begin to show the flavors of roasting. This can lead to notes of nuts, chocolate or caramel. Dark roast Dark roasts, often referred to as “dark roast,” are roasted well into the second crackling stage. They have a dark brown to almost black color and an oily surface. The taste of a dark roast is strongly determined by the roast itself. The aromas of the beans can be dominated by notes of dark chocolate, nuts or even toasted bread or malt. Dark roasts often have low acidity and strong body. It is important to know that none of these roasting grades is better than the others. It all depends on your personal preferences. Some coffee lovers prefer the complex and fruity taste of light roasts, while others prefer the strong and rich flavors of dark roasts. Bean test winner: How do you find the right coffee for the fully automatic machine? Finding the perfect coffee for your fully automatic machine can be a challenge. There is a huge selection of coffee types and brands on the market, and everyone has their own preferences in terms of taste, aroma and body. Here are some tips that can help you in your search: Consider the type of beans As already mentioned, there are two main types of coffee beans: Arabica and Robusta. Arabica beans have a softer, often fruitier aroma, while Robusta beans have a stronger and often earthier aroma. There are also blends of the two that can offer the best of both worlds. Pay attention to the roasting Roasting can have a big impact on the taste of the coffee. Light roasts tend to bring out fruity and acidic flavors, while dark roasts often bring out rich and deep flavors. Medium roasts offer a good balance between the two.

Best coffee for Jura, Siemens and DeLonghi – What does the fully automatic machine do with the coffee beans? A fully automatic coffee machine is a wonderful investment for any coffee lover. With just one touch of a button, you can prepare a variety of specialty coffees, from espresso to cappuccino. But which coffee beans are the best for your particular fully automatic machine? Here’s what you need to know about the most popular brands: Jura, Siemens and DeLonghi. Jura Jura automatic coffee machines are known for their high quality and reliability. They are characterized by their precision and ability to extract the full flavor from the coffee beans. If you own a Jura fully automatic machine, we recommend a medium to dark roast level to get the most out of the machine.

It is important to note that choosing the right coffee beans also depends on your personal preferences. Experiment with different varieties and roasts until you find the perfect blend for your taste and machine. Low acid coffee beans: What about espresso or cappuccino? Acidity is an important factor in the flavor profile of a coffee. It adds to the overall balance and complexity and gives the coffee a certain liveliness and freshness. But not everyone appreciates high acidity, and some people must prefer low-acid coffees for health reasons. But how does acidity affect espresso and cappuccino? Acidity and espresso Espresso is an intense, concentrated form of coffee, and its preparation often requires lower acidity beans. This is because the pressure with which the water is forced through the coffee powder tends to bring out the acids in the coffee beans more intensely. Therefore, espresso beans tend to be darker roasted, as the roasting process reduces the acidity in the coffee. Low acid beans like our “The Godfather” blend are often a good choice for espresso lovers. Acidity and cappuccino Cappuccino consists of equal parts espresso, heated milk and milk foam. This is where the acidity of the espresso beans used plays a role, as it affects the taste of the final product. The milk in the cappuccino helps balance the acidity of the espresso, which means you can still get a balanced cappuccino even with a slightly more acidic espresso. Our Felix – The House Blend is a great option for a low-acid but flavorful cappuccino. Why does the coffee from the fully automatic machine no longer taste good? There can be a variety of reasons why the coffee from your fully automatic machine suddenly doesn’t taste the way you’re used to. The good news is that most of these problems can be fixed with a few simple approaches. Possible reasons One of the most common reasons why the coffee from the fully automatic machine no longer tastes good, is a lack of care and cleaning of the machine.

Solution approaches Regular thorough cleaning and descaling of your fully automatic machine is crucial to ensure the best taste of your coffee. Use special cleaning and descaling products for this purpose and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. When trying new coffee beans, give your palate some time to get used to the new taste. If you are still dissatisfied, return to your preferred beans or try a different variety or brand. Make sure you use the correct grind. Here it is a matter of trying out what tastes best to you. As a general rule, the grind should be fine for espresso and medium for regular coffee. Lastly, don’t forget that water also plays a crucial role in flavor. If possible, use filtered water in your coffee maker. This can make a big difference especially in areas with hard water. Jura, DeLonghi, Krups: Is the brand decisive?

Conclusion Finding the best coffee beans for fully automatic machines can be a challenge, especially for coffee lovers who are always looking for the perfect taste experience. Our guide will help you make the right choice and get the most out of your beloved hot beverage. One of the most important factors you should consider is the roasting date. A freshly roasted product offers a more intense and rich flavor. Therefore, when choosing coffee beans, you should pay attention to the roasting date, which is indicated on the package. Coffee beans should generally be used within one month of the roasting date to reach their full potential. The selection of the right coffee beans also depends greatly on the desired method of preparation. Some beans are better suited for espresso, others for café crema or filter coffee. For a mild Café Crema, for example, Arabica coffee beans are an excellent choice because of their balanced and fruity flavor. When choosing beans, you should also consider the different roasting companies. While you can find a wide selection of coffee beans in many supermarkets, specialized roasters often offer a wider range of tastes and qualities. They can also offer insight into the roasting process and explain to you exactly how the different flavors get into your coffee. Another important consideration is the acidity of the coffee. Low acid coffee can be a good choice especially for people with sensitive stomach. In addition, the acidity can greatly affect the flavor profile of the coffee.

Whether you prefer to start your morning with a strong cappuccino or latte macchiato or end your day with a smooth café, choosing the right type of coffee can make all the difference. Different coffees offer different flavor profiles, and choosing the right variety can greatly enhance your coffee experience. Of course, the coffee machine itself is also a decisive factor. Not every machine is the same, and the way the machine grinds the beans and passes the water through it can have a big impact on the taste of the coffee. Therefore, it is important to choose a machine that goes well with the beans you choose. Last, you should also pay attention to tests and recommendations. They provide a helpful overview of the different options and can help you find the beans that best suit your preferences. It can also be helpful to try different beans and see which ones taste best to you. Remember that the best coffee is the one that tastes best to you. Overall, choosing the best coffee beans for fully automatic machines is a process that requires some research and experimentation. But with the right approach and information, you can find the perfect coffee for your taste.
