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.
Drink variety - Coffee beverages are in different varieties and when you choose a high end machine you are more likely to enjoy them. In essence a quality machine will be able to make cappuccino espresso and regular coffee. In most cases a machine that can make specialty coffee beverages and regular coffee will come with separate coffee carafes and cappuccino cups. With a machine that can do different varieties you can make several cups of different beverages in a single brewing to match your preferences.
Cappuccino is a special coffee beverage that is prepared by adding milk and milk form to espresso. This special beverage originated from Italy and became a hit because of the added flavoring of the foam topping. The foam also helps the coffee keep warm longer and retain its warm rich coffee taste longer without getting stale fast. Although cappuccinos are very in demand beverages they are not widely availed of because they are harder to prepare.
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.
