make a cappucino, start with How to steam milk
, then see How to Froth Milk
, and grab your espresso shots. Start by pouring your espresso into the cup, and hold a spoon over the mouth of your steam cup so that the thinner, steamed milk is let through, while the thick foam
on top is held back. When the cup is about half full of the espresso/steamed milk
mixture, slow your pouring and start scooping foam in as well.
If it's poured right, and is in a clear vessel, the coffee and steamed milk should be about two-thirds of the cup, and the clean white foam is the top third. I prefer to drink my coffee straight, no sugar added, but some people add sugar/milk to anything with coffee in it. Don't do this.
