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.
There are also different brewing methods cappuccino makers come in. There are semi-automatic machines as well as fully automatic ones. Automatic machines can produce cappuccino without any effort from you. You just have to push a button and the machine will make your cappuccino for you. Aside from that the machine can also turn off on its own with an auto shut-off feature. This type of cappuccino maker is more suitable for use in restaurants and coffee shops. They are hassle-free and fast but they are also a bit more expensive than the semi-automatic which can meet the homemakers budget. Semi-automatic machines are less expensive. For the savings you get you need to load up the machine and turn it off when your cappuccino is finished.
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.
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.
