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.
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.
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.
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.
