I want to buy myself a coffee machine so I can get nice and tasty coffee throughout the day. Basically my goals are
- Don't really want to invest half the day in front of my machine, experimenting with all sort of weirdness
- Do want excellent and nice looking coffee.
- Do want to have milk foam.
- Don't want to go over 500 euros.
I'm OK with a cup of coffee taking like 15 minutes of preparation, but not much more.
I heard from people that a bean-to-cup machine makes not a real cappuccino or espresso, because that can only be done by a portafilter machine, where you have to grind the beans yourself and prepare for much longer. Is that correct, or is that only fanboy sayings?
EDIT: By "coffee", I mean espresso and cappuccino.
