Cappuccino faqs

What is a cappuccino?

Some quick cappuccino facts:

  1. A cappuccino is 1 part espresso, 1 part steamed milk and 1 part foam. Our barista courses cover how to make a perfect one, from the pour to the microfoam and everything inbetween!
  2. We love its word origin: it’s probably inspired by the brown tunics and white hoods of Capuchin monks, who have also given their name to the cute capuchin monkeys.
  3. Nope, its not the same as a latte – although the base is still a shot of espresso, the proportions of coffee, milk and foam vary (as does the latte art!).
  4. Chocolate on top or not? Baristas who’ve taken part in our training know our thoughts on that one!
