While you may think that you have to sacrifice drinking other styles of coffee if you get a cappuccino maker this is not necessarily the case. Many models of cappuccino maker which are currently available on the market recognise that people probably dont want to drink cappuccino all the time. Traditionally Italians only drink cappuccino and other milk-based coffees in the morning and stick to espresso later on in the day. So it makes sense that you should be able to make the same choices when making coffee at home. Many models now offer the facility to create different styles of coffee with a combination machine without sacrificing any of the quality of either drink. The way that this is done is similar to the process which is used by a real barista. These combination machines are essentially espresso machines with an expanded range of capabilities. Each different drink begins life as an espresso with different discs or pods then added to the machine afterwards to create the desired finish. So to produce a cappuccino an espresso is made and then a separate milk disc or pod is added to the machine to create the foam topping as a second step.
Drink variety - Coffee beverages are in different varieties and when you choose a high end machine you are more likely to enjoy them. In essence a quality machine will be able to make cappuccino espresso and regular coffee. In most cases a machine that can make specialty coffee beverages and regular coffee will come with separate coffee carafes and cappuccino cups. With a machine that can do different varieties you can make several cups of different beverages in a single brewing to match your preferences.
A cappuccino machine is not a purchase to be taken lightly. Youve got to consider if the time and monetary expenses are worth it. Youll also be weighing additional factors such as what visual style will you select types of drinks prepared and ease of maintenance. Your decision should be based on careful thought as to your current and future needs and intentions. Yup go ahead and buy one for your blowout gatherings...If you do a lot of entertaining at home then a cappuccino machine will only add to the spice of your dinner parties or Saturday afternoon lunches.
How much should you spend? The situation will be different for everyone but in general you should expect to spend at least a couple hundred dollars on a decent cappuccino machine. There are certainly cheaper alternatives out there but you dont want to end up with something that is going to break down on you in a couple of months. Some people even resort to using their stovetop in an attempt to make home cappuccinos. But without a proper machine youll likely find that this is next to impossible since youll need something to compress the grinds as well as a proper steam hose.
