National Cappuccino Day is November 8th, and cappuccino is on the bevy menu.
Cappuccino is so named as it calls to mind the color of Capuchin monks, and it is a specialty of Italian bars.
On top of that, silky foam. The coffee, milk & foam are made using equal amounts of each.
In the making of espresso, hot water is forced through finely ground coffee at a high pressure achieving bitter sweet flavor & having the consistency of syrup. Then, the scalded or steamed milk is added, and the foam tops it all off.
Many people, especially Italians enjoy this strong brew, but personally, I would have to add some sugar, and possibly, cinnamon & cocoa to tolerate this blend.
I would probably go for the coffee latte, where 1 part espresso is combined with 4 parts scalded or steamed milk, and though it’s unconventional, I would ask for a good amount of foam on top.
National Cappuccino Day will have you all perked up!
