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.
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.
Its important to find a product that will make cleaning easy on a regular basis. For added convenience there are some machines on the market that use pre-packaged coffee so that all you have to do is load up the main disk and turn on the power. And if you are not technologically inclined you will want to get bogged down with the machine that has too many preset buttons or controls. All in all if you are coffee fan then there are too many benefits to getting a cappuccino machine to ignore and the purchase of the perfect one can end up saving you a lot of money in the long run.
