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.
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.
Self-clean ability - Modern cappuccino machines come with self-clean technology a feature that brings a lot of convenience to users. With such a machine all you are required to do is pour special cleaning solution into your machines few times a year to de-calcify them. Some makers even have milk frothers that are self-cleaning so you dont have to worry about maintenance every time you use your machine.
