Nowadays, with the advancement of technology, coffee has gradually entered the field of automation. Automatic flower pulling and automatic milk foaming have caused heated discussion in recent years, and automatic coffee machines are no exception.

On January 11, 2024, the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) announced that Thermoplan Black & White4 CTS will be the designated fully automatic espresso machine for the 2024 - 2027 World Coffee Pull Competition. This will be the first time a fully automatic espresso machine has been on the (WLAC) stage.

SCA CEO Yannis Apostolopoulos said: "This marks an important step forward for the coffee industry in its efforts to include more devices in World Coffee events. We are proud to partner with Thermoplan for the next four years to achieve our common goal of promoting coffee excellence globally." "

Later, on Social networks, some netizens posted that "the world flower champion does not need to make milk bubbles," which caused discussion among netizens.

In the comment area, some netizens said that it may be a good thing from a business point of view, but felt "a little cheating" from the point of view of playing the game, which greatly weakened the artistry and skill of the barista. At the same time, there are netizens think, Full automatic has been the trend,"Now baristas resist this thing is nothing more than feel that their skills will be replaced by machines, Their value is relatively reduced."

On the other hand, some netizens took the lead in experiencing the event designated full-automatic espresso machine and said that using steam stick to make milk foam or need barista manual, and semi-automatic coffee machine needs to find an angle, but full-automatic machine can set relevant parameters, so that barista can more "focus on flower creation itself."

Secondly, some people think that the emergence of fully automatic espresso machines can greatly reduce the artificial errors of parameters such as powder amount, filling pressure and grinding, which greatly increases the stability of products.

Although automation has shown good performance in providing stable espresso and fine milk texture, it also requires the barista's own "programming" ability, such as grinding degree, extraction pressure, powder amount, water amount, etc., to create a truly excellent cup of coffee. As the coffee industry continues to develop, the trend of automation is just one example of its continuous adaptation and advancement.

In addition, it is expected that the next World Flower Pulling Competition will be held at the Bella Center in Copenhagen, Denmark from June 27 to 29, 2024. Black&White4 CTS will be available to contestants for the first time.

For the coffee industry, the balance between technological progress and humanization is also very important, although the automatic espresso machine may cause some concern, but it is a sign of the progress and growth of the coffee industry.

As long as coffee practitioners continue to learn and grow to keep up with changes and developments in the industry, they also need to have a clear understanding of their career plans. In the face of various industries, people of different ages see things differently. Youth is not a limit. There is no need to limit yourself to this.
