Cappuccino is known to be a classic Italian coffee drink and one of the favorites in most coffee shops around the world. Basically, it consists of equal parts of espresso, steam milk, and milk foam, of course, there is no cappuccino without the foam, right? Although, nowadays millennial make it by pouring a shot or maybe two of espresso into a tall cup and end up by spooning that thick foam on to the top.
Discovering Cappuccino 101
Originally a cappuccino is a small drink, we are talking about 5-6 ounces, and yes we know other coffee shops tend to serve 16 ounces cappuccinos, but they are completely wrong. When discovering cappuccino you need to understand that is roughly a drink of thirds which means one-third of espresso, one-third of steamed milk, and finally one-third of foam. So you know the foam should not be over 1 cm deep, and it has to have just a touch of firmness. If you are making cappuccino at home then you are probably going to push the foam with a spoon, so it should not be so firm either so soft that it begins to spread out and turn runny. It always should peak up just a little bit, just remember to gently smooth back out!
