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.
In Western countries waking up in the morning include a hot cup of steaming coffee whether it is taken with or without milk sugar or creamer. In fact some people may even feel that they cannot function properly in a day without having their first cup of coffee. It is true coffee does give you that often required kick start to a day but has also been a drink which has found its place into many environments whether you are having a social drink with a friend at the coffee shop around the corner sipping it down during the boardroom meeting at work or just enjoying a cuppa by yourself. The fact is that wherever you go you will most likely find a coffee making machine in every kitchen.
Okay pick up your cappuccino machine because youve got the time...Youre a work-from-home type of guy that likes to save on stuff like gas money and carbon emissions. Instead of getting decently dressed in a manner acceptable to society jumping in your gas-guzzler and spewing noxious fumes both ways for a single cup you languidly make your cappuccino in your bathrobe and bunny slippers while your V8 hibernates in the driveway.
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.
