What is a cappuccino?

A cappuccino is an Italian coffee drink that is usually prepared with double espresso, hot milk, and steamed milk foam. Variations of the drink involve the use of cream instead of milk, and flavouring with cinnamon or chocolate powder.

The way cappuccino is defined today, double shot of espresso, one of the most important factors in preparing a cappuccino is the texture and temperature of the milk. When a barista steams the milk for a cappuccino, microfoam is created by introducing very tiny bubbles of air into the milk, giving the milk a velvety texture.

Ingredients

  • Espresso coffee capsule (40 ml) of your choice (our Gourmesso preference goes to Etiopia Blend Forte)
  • 50-70 ml of cold milk
  • White sugar
  • Cocoa powder
  • You will need

  • Cappuccino cup (170 ml)
  • Aeroccino milk frother or your Nespresso®* machine's steam nozzle, or the Lattissima Plus machine
  • Preparation

  • First froth the milk using the steam nozzle of your Nespresso®* machine or the Aeroccino milk frother and warm it up until it becomes a velvety froth
  • Choose an espresso coffee capsule (our Gourmesso preference goes to Etiopia Blend Forte)
  • Pour your chosen espresso coffee capsule (40 ml) into the Cappuccino cup
  • Next fill the cup with the prepared frothed milk
  • Add sugar to taste and sprinkle with cocoa
  • The result is a cappuccino as gorgeous as it is delicious
  • Or as an alternative you can prepare a cappuccino with one touch using the Lattissima Plus machine
  • Which compatible blend is the best for making a cappuccino?

    We typically recommend our darker, more intensely roasted blends for Cappuccinos or any drinks with milk. The more robust flavors retain their unique qualities despite the addition of milk and sugar.

  • The Etiopia Blend Forte is our second strongest and darkest roast espresso, with an intensity of 10. You can trace the origin of this classic drink back to Austrians living in Italy who wanted to enjoy their traditional Capuchins, which makes it the perfect base to prepare your next cappuccino at home. Also our favourite for cappuccinos.
  • Which other compatible blends we recommend?

  • The Ristretto Blend Forte is our strongest and darkest roast espresso, with an intensity of 10.
  • The SFCC House Blend Decaf Lungo is a mild yet bold espresso, with an intensity of 6. It’s the perfect choice in case you want it in decaf, since it works well in milk-based drinks.
  • The Colombia Arabica Mezzo has an intensity level of 7 and provides a velvety, floral flavor that is light in cocoa. If you want a blonder roast, this is the best option and still holds up with milk well.
  • We also suggest that you experiment with your machine and favorite capsules to determine which blends and proportions suit your tastes the best.
