These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.
2.Has one touch cappuccino
With one press of a button you can create a cappuccino.
3.Doesn’t use proprietary capsules
This means that the capsules/pods are widely available, whereas with some manufacturers you can only buy them from special shops or online.
4.Has integrated milk frother
With an integrated milk frother, the machine can automatically produce frothed milk for use in cappuccinos and other drinks.
5.Can brew and steam simultaneously
With a double boiler or heat exchanger system, you can brew and steam milk at the same time. This has an advantage over single boiler machines where you have to wait between brewing and steaming for the temperature to adjust.
For machines which accept coffee capsules/pods, each one can create a different drink, including teas and hot chocolates. More types of drink available gives you a greater range of choice.
