What is a cappuccino?
Some quick cappuccino facts:
- 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!
- 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.
- 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!).
- Chocolate on top or not? Baristas who’ve taken part in our training know our thoughts on that one!
