While there are a plethora of options when it comes to espresso machines, those that are capsule-centric are not everyone's "cappuccio." Fortunately, after having tested a number of machines, from the Neapolitan coffee maker to the moka, I am pleased to confirm that there exists a machine that will transform you into the barista of your dreams: the Capresso Ultima PRO Espresso & Cappuccino Machine. With its sleek design and easy-to-use functions, you will be on your way to brewing up the best brews in no time. Moreover, the Capresso Ultima Pro is one of those machines that takes foam (aka frothed milk) to new heights. Pretty soon, this recipe for a marocchino will be part of your "daily grind."
