The Magic Of Coffee

Italian Cappuccino

  • 1/3 part freshly brewed espresso coffee
  • 2/3 part frothed milk
  • Sugar (to taste)
  • Foam from the frothed milk
  • Ground chocolate, cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg or vanilla powder for garnish

1. In a 5 ounce pre-heated espresso cup prepare cappuccino from 1/3 part espresso coffee and 2/3 part of frothed milk. 
2. Top with foam from the frothed milk and garnish with a light sprinkle of ground chocolate, cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg or vanilla powder.

To prepare correct froth:
1. Fill a small jug to 1/3 of its capacity with fresh milk.
2. Immerse the frothing arm found on all electric espresso machines just below the surface of the milk.
3. Turn on the steam and gradually lower the jug, allowing the milk to froth up while still keeping the froth arm just below the surface.
4. Add a half of the froth into the espresso coffee.
5. Sprinkle a bit of unsweetened cocoa powder or grated dark chocolate.
6. Add the rest of the froth into your beverage and top with a dash of cocoa or grated chocolate again.

NOTE: To prepare Mocha Cappuccino, mix 1/3 part espresso to 2/3 part steamed milk, after dissolving cocoa or chocolate syrup with the milk to taste.

Helpful Tips
Cappuccino is best served in a pre-heated 5 oz. (150 ml) espresso cup (similar to tea cup). Typically the correct proportions for cappuccino are: 1/3 of just made espresso coffee and 2/3 of froth. 
For stronger cappuccino mix 1/2 part espresso and 1/2 part frothed milk.
The lower in fat the milk, the airier the froth (fat greases and breaks the bubbles).
