How to Make Cappuccino at Home

Eidolonai February 23, 2018

If you’d like your day to begin in the style of the Europeans, you should learn how to make cappuccino. This coffee was first made in Italy, where tourists can always be spotted when they order it in the afternoon. True Italians reserve this savory coffee for the start of the day.

The Trick behind

Making a great cup of it is both an art and a science. There are three key elements involved: espresso coffee, milk that has been steamed, and the foam which results from this steaming. For a perfect cup of this coffee, these three parts must be in perfect proportion and at the perfect temperature. There was a time when only a skilled cook would master the steps to making it, but the common use of coffee machines makes learning how to make it much easier than before.

The Easy Way

You can use a specialized machine for this coffee to brew the espresso, one of the key elements of making this delicious drink. The machine will also steam milk and add it to the espresso. Some machines also will grind coffee beans, giving you the freshest espresso possible. Yet, none of these steps are the really difficult part of making it. The trickiest part is making sure that the steamed milk is airy and foamy enough for a true coffee of this kind. A cappuccino machine can really help with this step when you are learning how to make it.

Best Brands

One of the leading maker brands  for this coffee is Bunn. Their machines are available in commercial models and can be trusted. This brand of maker will use all of the correct temperatures and steps to make a great cup. A top-of-the-line commercial Bunn model can set you back over $ 1000.

There are other options, if your budget is smaller than that. For example, Nespresso machines retail for less than $ 500. These machines can steam milk for this coffee and latte drinks. A quick search on the Internet will give you even more affordable options. Generally speaking, you’ll pay more for a specialized maker than a regular coffee or espresso machine due to the extra functionality.

The majority of commercial cappuccino machines will brew one or two cups of it at a time, compared to a commercial machine which may have up to 5 spouts for brewing and dispensing several cups at a time.

What’s the Best Recipe?

Most avid cappuccino drinkers are very particular about the flavor. Since espresso is involved, a cup of this coffee which is tasty to one person may seem too strong or bitter to another person. As you learn how to make it, experiment along the way to learn which kind of espresso beans and how much frothy foam suits your taste best.
