Thick and Frothy Foam Done Right
A great cappuccino machine
is held to a high standard by all coffee connoisseurs alike. This particular coffee drinker appreciates a fine specialty coffee done right to order and will not settle for anything less than perfection. The ingredients of a cappuccino are key and are composed by the following; a rich and full bodied shot of espresso paired with equal parts steamed milk and densely steamed foam. Any cappuccino lover will be the first to tell you how important it is to make a proper cappuccino and they will be quick and merciless to point out when its not. Anything from attaining the correct texture, temperature and ratio of foam can make or break your cappuccino. Being able to cater to all the different variations is also important as there are those who prefer their cappuccinos on the dry side while others prefer a cappuccino with more liquid or what is considered "wet”. Customization is the rule of the day with cappuccinos and Brokerhouse Distributors carries a variety of cappuccino makers to meet all of these highly customized demands.
Originally an Italian concoction
of espresso with steamed milk and foam, the drink was meant to be served in a porcelain cup to be enjoyed rather than in a paper cup as the former is better equipped to retain the ideal beverage temperature. Those that prefer the cappuccino can attest to the importance of the right foamy texture and weight. Cappuccinos are meant to be thick, dense and velvety smooth to taste while sitting immaculately at the very top of the cappuccino without dissipating; these qualities are all the hallmarks of a textbook picture perfect cappuccino.
While having a skilled barista at your local café who knows how to make the perfect cappuccino is always ideal, creating a homemade version of a flawless cappuccino is also very possible with the right equipment as provided by Brokerhouse Distributors. The key is in a cold stainless steel pitcher with freshly poured milk. The next step is to submerge the wand which should be tilted off center; the goal here is to ensure the milk continuously circulates. As this is being done slowly raise lower the pitcher so that the wand eventually settles near the top of the milk's surface. Now some cappuccino makers
will have the steaming function timed so that it automatically turns off while others will require a thermometer in which case the ideal temperature to reach is 145 degrees. Anything more will put your milk in danger of scalding and threatening the perfection of your cappuccino.
