I have a cappuccino maker and cannot make good cappuccino. I've been using a powder, it's instant.?!

Question: Where do you get cappuccino to use in a machine? I know that the instant crap can't be what you use.

You're right, you don't want to use the instant. Cappuccino is an espresso drink, so you need to start with suitable coffee beans for espresso. Choose good quality arabica beans, and lean toward a darker roast (but doesn't have to be the darkest, burnt roast). You should be able to find at your grocery store, or specialty coffee store. Easy to order fresh-roast coffee beans that are great for espresso online as well.

The grind is very important, you need a finer grind than you would normally use for making coffee in a drip machine or coffee press. Good espresso is all in the grind.

The basic recipe for a Cappuccino is 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, 1/3 foamed milk.
