The procedure of getting a good espresso involves grinding of the beans and pressing the espresso while using a high pressure machine. You can also use a stove top model to do the same. Remember not to make an excess at once, and the cream should be visible and should be on top as the golden brown foam. You can use an espresso cup to keep the temperature under control.

    Addicted to coffee? Then it might be time for you to get your very own cappuccino maker. The counter top model variety can steam milk for both the latte and the cappuccino. If you have guests coming over to your place quite often and they absolutely thirst for coffee or you yourself are a self appointed coffee addict, then it is suggested that you should get a cappuccino machine that makes lot of cups at one time.
