The Best Cappuccino Coffee Machines 

The Best Cappuccino Coffee Machines

If you’re anything like us, you’ll have also experienced that after a while, day-to-day filter coffee seems to lose its appeal, even if just for a couple of weeks. This might lead to you trying something new for a bit, and a cappuccino is always a good option to bank on. Dating back to Italy in 1900 (literally, the cappuccino was invented that year, and commercialised from 1901), this milky, caffeinated gem is a great option to consider if you’re looking for a bit of a change. 

Rather than having to fork out R35.00+ a morning at the shop next to work, why not consider a longer term investment for a cappuccino machine at home (or talking to the team at work about a solution), and perhaps one that helps you avoid the “same old, same old” coffee slump, and gives you a greater variety of options to choose from.

What Classifies as a Good Cappuccino Coffee Machine?

This is a good question, and may be one of the first ones you ask before considering your options. In a nutshell, a good cappuccino coffee machine will provide a product solution in the following areas: Affordability, reliability, style, how many “extras” come with it, and quite frankly, if it delivers what it sets out to do, but also offers more than it is supposed to. We’ve done the digging, to find three of the best cappuccino coffee machines on the market right now, for you to choose from. All of these have been tried and tested and given the seal of approval from our side. 

Philips Saeco Xelsis X3 Super-Automatic Espresso Machine

The Philips Saeco Xelsis X3 may be marketed as an espresso machine, but it also makes one hell of a good cappuccino. This machine not only offers an incredible selection of coffees and cappuccino, but does so in style, with a modern touch screen display, and a very luxurious design. This machine comes with a bunch of extra features, including the option to make 15+ types of drinks, so you’ll never go bored again. The only consideration here would be to look at the price, which can tend to lean on the more expensive side (depending on where you buy), but if you’re looking for a shorter-term solution have a look at the others on our options here. All things considered, there is a reason why this machine is as acclaimed as it is, and as popular with businesses across the continent, so it may also be a worthwhile investment.

Jura XS9 Automatic Coffee Machine

The Jura XS9 Automatic Coffee Machine is another candidate for you to have a look at, especially because it is a bit more of an affordable option than the Philips. This “bean to cup” machine is designed for medium-sized offices, but what’s great about it, is that the drink options are far more vast than your traditional mid-range machine. “One touch cappuccino” is something that appeals to all of us, and this machine not only does so, but offers the same with lattes. Extra’s to help convince you: it comes with a massive water tank and grounds container, meaning you won’t have to fill it up as regularly as on any of the other machines listed here.

Aqua Bean Coffee Vending Machine

The Aqua Bean Coffee Vending Machine is perhaps the most underrated candidates on our list, partly because it doesn’t come with a name that sounds like it is part of a robot range (X, Y, Z2 etc.). Suitable for offices of 25 to 100 people, the purchase price of this one is the most affordable of the three, and perhaps this is what has helped to make it quite a popular choice for offices across the country. The price point has not affected quality, however. What we really like about this product is that it has a very edgy look, which isn’t often replicated in mid-range coffee machines. You can also make hot chocolate and a few other drink options, should you feel like you want to explore your taste range a little bit and this machine offers additional benefits in terms of size and mobility, which should not be discounted. 

Sounds Good. Where Can I Find These Cappuccino Coffee Machines?

All three of these machines are available online, at most of the prominent e-tailers in the country. Aquaspresso, however, offers purchases and hiring options for two of the machines on the list, so they may also be a good first stop to consider, before going anywhere else. Here’s to a new chapter in your journey with the world’s most famous bean. Buon cappuccino!
