In this blog, we will explore the history of cappuccino, explore its essence and discover how to enjoy this favourite drink on your special day.
The Origin of Cappuccino
The word “cappuccino” itself has a fascinating history. It’s believed to have originated from the Capuchin friars, whose brown robes resemble the color of espresso mixed with steamed milk. The cappuccino, as we know it today, is an Italian creation that took its modern form in the early 20th century.
Essence of the Cappuccino
A classic cappuccino is made by combining equal parts of espresso, steamed milk, and milk froth. Its essence lies in the harmonious blend of these elements. Here’s what makes the cappuccino special:
Espresso: The strong, concentrated coffee at the base of the cappuccino provides a robust and aromatic foundation.
Steamed Milk: The creamy, silky texture of steamed milk balances the intensity of the espresso, creating a smooth and luscious experience.
Frothed Milk: The frothed milk adds a layer of microfoam, resulting in a creamy top with a slightly sweet taste and a delicate design.
