How to choose a capsule coffee machine for home

What drinks can be prepared in capsule coffee machines?

  •  Most budget-priced models offer classic coffee drinks like espresso and lungo, while more expensive models allow for larger servings and often add hot milk options.

  •  Some of the most expensive pod machines have built-in milk carafes that let you prepare cream lattes and cappuccinos at the push of a button, while others have steam wands that let you manually add milk froth to your coffee.

Useful Features

  •  If you want to indulge in coffee with dense milk foam, consider buying a pod coffee machine with a cappuccinatore. You can also do it easier and buy an inexpensive milk frother.

  •  If such a criterion as “fine tuning” of drinks is important to you, pay attention to machines with the ability to adjust portion size, temperature and coffee strength. All pod machines will allow you to adjust the portion size in some way, but some models do a much better job of making the process as quick and easy as possible.

What capsules can be used?

  •  It totally depends on the car you choose. Most manufacturers use one type of capsule. Most Popular Capsule Brands:

  1. Nespresso.
  2. sweet taste.
  3. Lavazza.
  4. Tassimo.

  •  There are machines that can work with two types of capsules, and even with ground coffee – such models are present in my rating.
