To kick off the new year, the Overflowing Cup’s featured drink of the month is a classic: a cappuccino!
Fun fact: there is, indeed, a difference between a latte and a cappuccino. It’s found in the milk-foam-to-espresso ratio. While lattes traditionally have a thin but generous layer of milk foam and a greater amount of steamed milk, cappuccinos have a more even ratio — a third espresso, a third steamed milk, and a third foam. If you’re looking for something with more caffeine, there is no difference between the two. It’s all about your milk preference!
What you will need:
- 2 shots espresso
- 8 oz milk
What you will do:
- Pull espresso shot.
2. Pour 80z milk into pitcher and steam. Make sure to incorporate the foam into the milk well. This is what sets apart a cappuccino from a latte.
3. Add shot to mug.
4. Pour milk into mug.
That’s it! A cappuccino is a simple, yet delicious, coffee suitable for anyone! Come by the OFC for a cappuccino today!
