What is Homemade Cappuccino?
Cappuccino is basically an Italian-based espresso drink. You can also call it strong coffee resemble the latte. In Italian, Cappuccio meaning "hood" or something that covers the head, thus cappuccino literally means "small capuchin".
If you are in love with Starbucks or Nespresso Cappuccino then just try this recipe and you will get the same flavor, texture, and aroma in your home. Traditional style cappuccino is comprised of one to two shots of espresso topped with layers of steamed and foamed milk. ... They are creamier and more diluted in taste than traditional cappuccinos, much like a caffe latte with a little foam on top.
What type of milk do we need to use for Cappuccino?
If you are in love with a frothy, thick cappuccino, use whole milk. Alternatively, you can use low-fat milk, as the foam produced from skim milk is light and stays for short time.
The ratio is generally one part espresso to one part steamed milk to one part foam; you can stir all the layers together if that's your preference, but too much milk or too much foam will throw off the bitter-to-sweet balance that makes a perfect cappuccino.
What is sprinkled on cappuccino?
Restaurant-style coffee comes with whipped cream and a little sprinkling of cinnamon. This powdered delight is perfect for brightening your morning as a dusting on regular coffee. Add a dash of cinnamon to a latte, cappuccino or even some tea.
