Cappuccino

Image

A cappuccino (or cap) is a traditional Italian drink made of espresso, steamed milk, and foam milk. It is very popular and has become very common in cafes. The cappuccino is very similar to a Caffé Latte except a cappuccino has less milk then a latte. A cappuccino combines equal parts of espresso, steamed milk and milk froth. This luxurious drink, if made properly, can double as a dessert with its complex flavors and richness.

Directions:

  1. Brew 2 ounces of espresso.
  2. Steam the milk.
  3. Pour about 2 ounces of milk into the espresso by using a spoon to hold back the foam.

  5. (optional) Top with cocoa powder or add latte art.

Did you know that the foam that tops a cappuccino acts as a natural insulator, keeping the drink warmer longer?

Variations:

Dry Cappuccino (Cappuccino Scuro) – If you don't like too much milk in your coffee, try a cappuccino “dry”. This means there is less milk or no milk and more foam.

Wet Cappuccino (Cappuccino Chiaro) – The opposite of the “Dry”, this cappuccino has more milk and less or no foam.
