Test winner for fully automatic coffee machines: Jura ENA 8
According to the Jura manufacturer, the ENA 8 fully automatic coffee machine wants to be a “superlative one-cup machine”. This has been successful at least insofar as it has landed in first place in the Stiftung Warentest 12/2019 test. The model from 2019 (not the older version!) Was convincing in all disciplines, although the barista had something to complain about in the taste test: the cappuccino was "without special features". And still: According to the product testers, the Jura ENA 8 gives you the best fully automatic coffee machine.
He spends ten different coffee specialties, including espresso, cappuccino, ristretto, latte macchiato - and the tea drinkers get hot water. The spout can be adjusted in height from 55 to 138 millimeters for cups of different heights. The pump pressure is 15 bar. So that the fully automatic machine cuts a good figure when it is not in operation, you can choose between different housing colors at MediaMarkt, for example.

Price tip fully automatic coffee machine: Melitta Caffeo Passione OT
If you want to spend significantly less on your fully automatic machine than the test winner costs, you don't have to do without delicious cappuccino. Although the machines are fairly stable in price, with Melitta Caffeo Passione OT we have found an attractive model at a good price. In December 2017, the Stiftung Warentest awarded the fully automatic coffee machine an overall rating of “good”. In the sensory assessment, it even surpasses the test winner of 2019 with a grade of 1.6. That means: The drinks are great!
Perhaps a secret lies in the good taste in the special sealing of the coffee beans. In addition, only as much is grinded as is currently required. The fully automatic machine can prepare 10 different coffee variations. In addition to an automatic switch-off, there is a "0-watt" switch, which prevents standby consumption. Despite the extensive equipment and 15 bar pump pressure, the price is attractive:

Price tip and test winner manually: Philips EP2220 / 10
But it is even cheaper, with just as good coffee - namely if you froth the milk yourself. If you are not afraid of it or who mostly drinks espresso anyway, take a look at the Philips 2200 series EP2220 / 10. It is a fully automatic coffee machine with a manual milk frother: As with some portafilter machines, the glass is held so that the nozzle on the front of the machine protrudes into the milk. This is how the milk is heated and foamed.
The Philips machine can brew coffee and espresso. With the manually foamed milk, cappuccino, latte macchiato and the like are also possible. At Stiftung Warentest, this model achieved an overall rating of 2.2 and was therefore ahead of the competition in the category of fully automatic machines with manual milk frothers.

Fully automatic coffee machines in the test: How was tested?
In its test, the Stiftung Warentest examined several points of view, which were weighted differently for the final grade. The most important sub-rating with 35 percent was the sensory assessment. The taste was assessed by eight trained people in the blind test. During the technical inspection (25 percent), the heating-up time, brewing time, espresso temperature and foam consistency were examined. Instructions for use, filling the fully automatic machine, cleaning, etc. were included in the sub-rating "handling" (weighting: 20 percent). In addition, the Stiftung Warentest examined safety, environmental properties and pollutants.

Fully automatic coffee machine, coffee machine, portafilter machine - what's the difference?
A coffee machine (see buying tips) is commonly understood as a machine for preparing filter coffee. A paper filter is inserted into the funnel above the jug, into which the ground coffee comes. Here the hot water trickles in and down into the jug. Technically, the devices can be designed to be relatively simple, and accordingly they are inexpensive. Alternatively, there are 1-cup coffee machines with capsules or pads.
Anyone who ordered an espresso in a cafe or restaurant would definitely have seen the barista on a portafilter machine. The ground coffee or espresso powder comes in a small metal mold over the cup. The hot water is pressed through here. Many portafilter machines have a nozzle for frothing milk. The price is between coffee machines and fully automatic machines.
Fully automatic coffee machines are a large extension of portafilter machines. They grind the beans, fill the metal mold, can often also heat and froth milk and pour everything into the cup in the correct order.

Can a fully automatic coffee machine brew coffee?
It may sound like a stupid question, but it isn't: fully automatic coffee machines usually cook espresso. This generally forms the basis for cappuccino, latte macchiato and the like. Many fully automatic coffee machines cheat with coffee, it is actually a stretched espresso. It still tastes good.
How automatic are fully automatic coffee machines?
Dispense a coffee drink at the push of a button, grind coffee and froth milk, run a washing program - the machines can do that. However, it doesn't work without care: refill water and beans, get milk (or milk container) out of the fridge. In addition, you have to disassemble and clean the fully automatic machine from time to time regardless of the automatic rinsing processes. Otherwise mold can form. After all, the drip tray of many models can simply be put in the dishwasher.
In the meantime, some machines even offer app control or even a smart home connection:

Is coffee unhealthy?
For more details on this question, see our guide to enjoying coffee. In short: coffee currently has a worse reputation than it deserves. Ordinary drinkers will remain far from the amounts of coffee and caffeine that the World Health Organization considers critical. On the contrary, coffee even has positive properties on the body.
