Real Cappuccinos are made from espresso. A cappuccino does not contain any chocolate sauce. And Lavazza is only good if you live in Italy. Coffee beans become stale after 2 weeks of roasting even in vacuum sealed containers.

Thank you for the recipe! ;) Basically, you don't need to have a cappuccino machine to do capuccino. Try to find a moka "machine", for example the Italian brand Bialetti. Not the electronic one, the "old-style" one made of steel! ;) You can also buy a good Italian coffee brand like Lavazza (try to avoid Nescafe and other instant coffee's not coffee! ;) eheh); pay attention to the right quantity of water and coffee powder, don't use too much heat and so on (check on google). Finally, buy a good quality of whole milk and try to find a sort of "electric whisk" to mount the milk and the coffee. Tadaaahhh: your cappuccino with A LOT of froth! ;D

I'm Italian and I don't like very much spending my money in unuseful EXPENSIVE things like a cappuccino machine (don't trust Nescafe nespresso machine: a true cappuccino has TONS of froth. Nespresso machine makes only espresso, in other words a very short bitter coffee). Sorry if I've sounded a bit rude and know-it-all: it wasn't my purpose! :)
