What makes a good cappuccino? Well the most important feature of a cappuccino and that which sets it apart from other styles of coffee is the foam topping. While this keeps the coffee warmer for longer and can add a unique taste to the coffee it is traditionally quite difficult to prepare. If you only have a filter coffee maker the only real way of preparing the foam would be to do it with a hand-held steamer but this may be quite awkward and may not produce the desired results every time. This is really only an option if cappuccino is something you drink only rarely. Most cappuccino machines have the facility to prepare the topping at the same time as the coffee which makes life a little easier. If you choose a fully-automated cappuccino machine then it is even easier as the machine will take care of everything including the foam topping all at the push of only one button.
Buying a cappuccino machine is like purchasing any other type of party centerpiece such as a margarita machine. You will want something that is easy to clean and will be the right size for your countertop. A lot of people are attracted by visually impressive machines that dont actually work well be in real life situations. Youll want to find that perfect balance of something that attracts attention but will also give you a decent product. Some people make the mistake of only cleaning their cappuccino machine before each use.
Cappuccino makers have a small difference with coffee makers because they use steam or pressure to force the water through the finely ground coffee. The pressure or steam in the machines can also be used in frothing milk. You will therefore have an added advantage when you have a cappuccino maker even when you have a coffee maker.
Aside from that these products ensure that both the espresso and the capuccino are of equal quality. Naturally the taste of the espresso affects the taste of the capuccino but with a combination machine you can be sure that the espresso and the resulting capuccino deserve each other in terms of quality. The classic cappuccino maker without an espresso maker requires you to brew espresso separately. Although some of these individual machines are still in action you will benefit more from a two-in-one machine especially if you still dont have a separate espresso maker. If you already do you can buy a capuccino-only machine and get some savings.
