Doesn't normal Amul Cream work with coffee?
I have used that but wanted something more fancy :D

Anyway, what I did was (after looking up online):

Took some Amul cream in a bowl and beat it for about 5 minutes.
Added powdered sugar and vanilla and beat it some more.

So my dad has developed a liking for cappuccinos. Thinking of getting him something for home but completely clueless on this (in terms of stuff one gets here) Any suggestions? I haven't assigned a budget for this as I have no clue what it should be, but I'm hoping I can get stuff under 8-10K?

I have a Morphy Richards pump based one. It is decent. I bought it for 9K about 2 years back. Earlier I had a steam based one which cost around 3K. Although it was VFM, it started leaking pretty soon.
A stove top espresso is also a good alternative if he drink only a cup or two daily. It is cheap, provides pretty good coffee.

Yeah I use a stove top at the moment and they have one too. Looking at a machine that needs him to do minimal work. Push a button, voila, CAPPUCCINO!

Then perhaps one of those capsule based one
LOL, What I meant was something that creates/brews the espresso and then with the press of a button shoots in the steamed milk. Push of a single button for everything was a bit of an exaggeration.

Could you link to the Morphy Richards model you have? Or possibly a similar one? Thanks

That model seems to be no longer available. Prestige pecmd 2.0 seems to be similar model.

Well here I am 3 years later and after trying to get my dad to test out a few budget machines, I've decided to stop my search for the time being since he seems to enjoy having that cup outside more than here. I on the otherhand have bought a Nanopresso which I am absolutely in love with for now. And coffee from Devan's

I was thinking you should have just opened some fd that paid interest on a monthly basis for him to do just that :D

Way too much work, unless you're seriously into this stuff and can't get a fix locally.

Which is the idea i'm getting when i see the brews mentioned. You can't get these particular brews in shops if you wanted ?
