If you’ve got the money to spare, and you don’t want to use up anymore valuable worktop space, buy one of these. Makes a decent cup with a good amount of crema. The latte function froths the milk well enough for some basic latte art. I make the espresso and steamed milk separately because the machine will pour the milk first then coffee in automatic mode. Most settings can be adjusted to taste. Finally, the build quality seems up to standard although I’ve only been using it two months so can’t comment long term. I’ve dropped down to four stars because the machine is a lot more money than an equivalent stand alone machine.
For a true cappuccino, with the perfect proportions of milk and foam
To make a truly authentic cappuccino, use the cappuccinatore jug to steam and foam the milk to suit your own taste.
