Choosing a Cappuccino maker can be challenging.
This guide makes it easy.

“To me, the smell of fresh-made coffee is one of the greatest inventions.”

Hugh Jackman wasn't alone when he said this.

To many of us, a good day begins with a good cup of Cappuccino.

But to have your Cappuccino just the way you like it, you'll first need a Cappuccino maker. Which sounds easy enough; hit the mall, grab a machine that catches your eye, and go home.

The reality, however, is rarely that simple.

For starters, the market is packed with options. You could easily spend thousands of Ringgit on a high-end Cappuccino maker which comes with cutting-edge design, groundbreaking features, and the best reviews any brand could hope for. At the same time, you could also spend considerably less on a simpler machine that does the job just as well.

This guide helps you arrive at that vital decision, minimising mistakes that you may make along the buying process.

Choose by budget.

Like all things, you shouldn't overspend. Know how much you're willing to part with before you hit the mall and try your best to stick with that number.

Nespresso has machines that fit everyone at every budget, from the RM899 Essenza Mini Bundle to the RM2899 Creatista Plus coffee machines.

Once you're committed to a budget, it's time to break it down; allocate a fair amount for both coffee and machine. 40% coffee and 60% machine would make for a wise allocation of budget. This ensures that you get the right balance to make that perfect cup of Cappuccino.

Choose by size.

If you usually go for a large cup of Cappuccino, you'll want to get a dual boiler or a heat exchanger machine. If you prefer a small cup of Cappuccino, however, a single boiler machine would be enough.

Choose the right coffee.

That means choosing coffee that you'd truly enjoy. There are plenty of options in the market, but if you're partial to coffee with milk, consider Nespresso's Barista Creations series. It's our new range of coffees inspired by the best baristas in the world and specially designed to go with milk.

Choose by space.

The last thing you'd want to happen when bringing your machine home is that it's too big to fit anywhere. To avoid that, grab a measuring tape, go to your intended spot for your machine, and find out what the dimensions are. Once you know how much space you have to work with, choosing your machine becomes an easier task.

When space is at a premium, look no further than the compact and lightweight Nespresso Inissia.

Choose by features.

Like the machines themselves, you're spoilt for choices when it comes to features.

Some come with a milk-frothing function to keep your coffee milky. Some have a memory function, so you get the same drink every time. Some come with a huge water tank capacity that prevents constant refilling. And, some are connected to your smartphone and some are built with easy-rinsing features.

Nespresso embodies the best-in-class features in two of its best sellers; the Aeroccino range and the Lattissima series, which serve up a cup of your favourite cappuccino with just a touch of a button.

But that's not all.

You could also go for a machine that gives you control over brew strength, so you could change your drink depending on your mood. Or, you could go for one with a built-in coffee grinder if you don't have a lot of space in your kitchen.

And that's our guide to make things easier for you when choosing a Cappuccino maker.

It all comes down to you. What can you spend? What do you need? What constraints do you have? You'd be paying a premium for this machine, so it's important that it ticks all your boxes.

Nespresso coffee machines come in different price range, sizes, features to fit your requirements. To explore the perfect machine to make your cappuccino, explore our range of Nespresso milk machines now.
