About the Cappuccino
What is a cappuccino? It’s a classic coffee drink that’s all about that perfect balance of flavors and textures. Picture this: a shot of espresso, steamed milk, and a creamy layer of frothed milk on top. Mmm, it’s like a little coffee work of art!
Now, let’s dive into its history. The cappuccino was born in Italy, where coffee culture runs deep. It’s believed to have originated in the early 20th century, with the name being inspired by the Capuchin friars’ brown hooded robes. You see, when the frothed milk is poured over the espresso, it forms a similar color to those robes, hence the name “cappuccino.”
Here’s a fun fact for you: traditionally, Italians enjoy their cappuccinos strictly in the morning. It’s considered a breakfast beverage rather than something you’d sip on later in the day. So, if you’re in Italy, you might get some raised eyebrows if you order a cappuccino in the afternoon!
Whether it’s the first thing in the morning or a delightful indulgence at any time, cappuccinos are a beloved choice for coffee enthusiasts. So, swing by our cafe and savor the velvety espresso, creamy steamed milk, and that delightful layer of froth on top. Cheers to a fantastic cappuccino experience!
