the coffee shot at a preset amount, allowing freedom for the barista to perform other tasks without over brewing the espresso.

Semi-Auto does not dose the coffee, requiring the barista to stop the coffee at the precise moment
in order not to ruin the espresso. More Barista training required than Automatic machines.
The name Semi-auto comes from the fact that these are traditional machines that engage a motorized pump which automatically
creates the high water PSI needed for espresso making.

Also Known as Manual machines; these machines use a lever that compresses a spring, and uses a piston in order to
create the water pressure needed for espresso making. Barista training is a must. Primarily used today in remote locations
where black outs are more common, and or less fortunate regions of the world where price is the first issue.
These machines can also be used when an area may not have electricity all the time.
(It can work using a gas heated boiler and a foot operated water pump in order to get water into the boiler).
