MILKING IT; MAKING A CAPPUCCINO JUST GOT A WHOLE LOT SIMPLER.
Because life is too short to cry over spilled milk, three new appliances simplify the tricky task of milk frothing.
Automatic cappuccino is the latest feature to hit the class of espresso machines known as super automatics. These highly refined trophy machines now come with a digital interface and LCD or LED screen.
Jura-Capresso's new Impressa Z5 makes cappuccinos or lattes with the push of a button, thanks to a triple-insulated thermal milk container that keeps milk cold for up to eight hours.
Coming this fall is De'Longhi's Magnifica Automatic Cappuccino Maker EAM3500, which grinds beans, brews espresso and also froths milk, all with one touch. With this system, leftover grinds don't remain in the brewing chamber, so the beans being ground are the ones brewed.
For non-electric fans, Bialetti offers its Mukka Express. It works on a stovetop and froths milk simultaneously.
Cappuccino drinkers rejoice. Right now, there are three new appliances that make frothing milk by hand seem as quaint as baking a loaf of bread.
