Know Your Coffee Drinks – What is a Cappuccino?

A cappuccino is one of the more popular drinks on an espresso menu. Traditionally, it’s 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk and 1/3 frothed milk on top. If you do the math on that, if your espresso is 1.5-2oz and that’s 1/3 of your drink, you’re probably gonna have a 5 to 6 oz drink – at least in a specialty coffee shop.

Cappuccinos were originally named after the Capuchin monks. The color of their robes matched to the color of the drinks so that’s kinda how it got its name.

It’s gonna be real sweet and flavorful because you have that fantastic frothed milk and warmed milk on there with a little bit of coffee aftertaste.
