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.
In Western countries waking up in the morning include a hot cup of steaming coffee, whether it is taken with or without milk, sugar or creamer. In fact, some people may even feel that they cannot function properly in a day without having their first cup of coffee. It is true, coffee does give you that often required kick start to a day but has also been a drink which has found its place into many environments, whether you are having a social drink with a friend at the coffee shop around the corner, sipping it down during the boardroom meeting at work or just enjoying a cuppa by yourself. The fact is that wherever you go, you will most likely find a coffee making machine in every kitchen.
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.
Maybe some of your guests have always wondered what its like to make their own cappuccino. This would be a great time to show them your skills by whipping up a cup or two right before their very eyes. Then, moments later, you can chuckle at their expense as they try to maneuver as deftly as you just did. Imagine that, Kodak moments and memories centered around a glorified drink mixer-upper.
