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.
Speed - How fast can the machine make your drink? The one advantage that comes with cappuccino makers is the speed in brewing drinks. They save you time compared to coffee makers but the type of machine that you select will also determine the speed or amount of time it takes for your drink to be ready. Machines that are designed to automatically froth milk and add it to the coffee may take an additional small amount of time. It is also important to remember that pod machines reduce tasks that need to be performed but at the expense of coffee quality that you get in the end.
While in the past you may have had to invest in a proper commercial machine to get great cappuccinos this isnt the case anymore. There are now mass-produced cappuccino machines which have been designed specifically for the home market and at a much lower cost than commercial machines. In fact many of these machines do not actually cost any more than a good quality filter coffee machine. When you consider how much you use your machine if you are a regular cappuccino drinker then it is probably still only going to work out costing you a few pence extra per drink over the life of the machine.
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.
