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.
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.
Other options include steam or piston powered devices in automatic, semi-automatic and even super automatic machines. You will also be glad to know that most of the modern espresso cappuccino machines have built-in refrigerators who clean and rinse the tubing and heads automatically without you having to strip any of the parts - ideal for those individuals who need to focus their time on more important facets in life. Most machines also has a fitted bin in which the used beans are discarded into and also can be sourced with a single or double foamer head which will allow two cups to be filled at the same time.
