The invitation phrase Would you like to go for coffee? is so familiar (and it is even used even if you do not consume coffee) as it is more than just coffee you get. The aromatic smells and flavors that come with drinking a cup, or being in a location wrapped up with the aroma already brings positive connotations to the whole idea as it sets you at ease. So many variations of coffee are available, but if your coffee is enjoyed in more of an Italian style then it usually means that you have to go out to a coffee shop or restaurant to still your craving for a Latte, Espresso or Cappuccino.
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 you may think that you have to sacrifice drinking other styles of coffee if you get a cappuccino maker this is not necessarily the case. Many models of cappuccino maker which are currently available on the market recognise that people probably dont want to drink cappuccino all the time. Traditionally, Italians only drink cappuccino and other milk-based coffees in the morning, and stick to espresso later on in the day. So it makes sense that you should be able to make the same choices when making coffee at home. Many models now offer the facility to create different styles of coffee with a combination machine, without sacrificing any of the quality of either drink. The way that this is done is similar to the process which is used by a real barista. These combination machines are essentially espresso machines with an expanded range of capabilities. Each different drink begins life as an espresso, with different discs or pods then added to the machine afterwards to create the desired finish. So to produce a cappuccino, an espresso is made, and then a separate milk disc or pod is added to the machine to create the foam topping as a second step.
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.
