Drink of the Month

Leave a Reply

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:

  1. 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.

5. Enjoy!

That’s it! A cappuccino is a simple, yet delicious, coffee suitable for anyone! Come by the OFC for a cappuccino today!
