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.
Water supply - Removable tanks make better choices for cappuccino machines because you can physically and easily refill them without the need to pour the needed water into the hot machine. However some models come with inbuilt water tanks and even though they are not as convenient they still make it possible for you to brew coffee cappuccinos and espressos all in a single brew. When thinking of water supply choose a machine that can directly hook to your water line so you have an easier time filling the tank to make your favorite coffee beverages.
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.
