Finding the right coffee for your fully automatic machine
Which coffee roast fits best in a fully automatic machine is determined by the details of how a fully automatic machine works: The contact time of coffee powder and water is very short (about 30 seconds - for comparison, filter coffee takes about 3-4 minutes), which means that the time it takes to extract ground coffee is very short. To still have as much flavour in the cup as possible, you want a coffee that is rather dark roasted. The shorter the contact time, the darker the roast you choose should be. Filter roasts are not suitable for the fully automatic machine because they produce a rather unpleasant, sour cup.
