					Cappuccino Machine

A cappuccino is a wonderful Italian coffee based hot drink that is
prepared with milk foam, espresso and hot milk. It is normally served in
a porcelain cup; this is because these cups have a much better heat
preservation compared to a normal mug or glass. The foam that stays on
the top of the cappuccino works as an insulator to help preserve the heat
of the drink, letting it stay hotter for much longer. It is not advised
to drink this cold, it tastes completely different, the hotter the
better!

There are many different kinds of cappuccino machines available for home
use as well as use in a restaurant. If you are looking for one of these
machines by a specific name, that's also okay as they are listed in
alphabetical order by the brand names. Although, all these machines are
great, some may find it easier to work with the smaller ones, because it
has less buttons and appears less confusing, where as others will prefer
to use the big ones. As long as you know what you are doing, it does not
matter what the size of the machine is.

For those that like to use the smaller cappuccino machines, this classic
machine is excellent. It is a solid performer; with a thermo-block
heating system that will prevent any water from escaping from the machine
while it is being used. The pod sieve allows use of standard 45mm round
espresso pods, with an 18 bar power pump, self-locking filter holder,
40oz removable water container with an automatic close valve and
individual high-speed setting for hot water. This machine allows you to
make a fresh hot cup of tea in just over thirty seconds.

There are two important facts that need to be remembered when using a
dual frother as the metal cylinder only has two functions;

Frothing and steaming - when the metal sleeve is pointing downwards

The metal cylinder will stay locked in place on the tip of the black
frother. The air and the hot steam are inserted straight into the milk;
this is what makes the best cappuccino!

Steaming only - when the metal sleeve is pointing upwards

No air will be inserted into the milk, just the hot steam and this is
what makes an ideal latte.

One of the slightly bigger ones is the semi-automatic machine. It is
vigorously heated by circulating water that's drawn off the boiler. It
has a 1550 watt heating element, 2 liter boiler with a heat exchanger,
1/8" thick boiler walls making it very safe to use, 1 gallon water
reservoir, a hot water dispenser that gives you hot water almost
instantly and a stainless steel easy-to-clean drip tray.

So, whether you own a restaurant and need new equipment or you are tired
of having to go to a restaurant to get that great boost of cappuccino,
there is one that will look great in any kitchen! There are so many
different cappuccino machines to choose from, you'll find one you just
can't get enough of!
