How to Make Cappuccino-The gourmet of all copies

Cappuccino is an Italian beverage, based on the espresso with the addition of milk. Usually it is done in the following proportions: 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, 1/3 frothed milk; but you can also have a cappuccino with 1/3 espresso and 2/3 microfoam.

The most important element in preparing a cappuccino (besides a quality shot of espresso coffee) is the temperature and texture of the milk. A well-trained barista should not only add steamed milk to the espresso - he (or she) should also introduce very tiny bubbles of air into the milk, creating what is known as microfoam. This gives the milk the light velvety texture and sweet taste that is so characteristic of this fine specialty coffee drink.

A cappuccino should then be served in a ceramic coffee cup, providing the proper heat retention. Truly skilled baristas go one step further and often create latte art, by designing unique items when pouring the steamed milk into the espresso.

 Although not an easy task, it is not as hard as you may think, why not start trying your own creations at home, today. One thing is for certain: you will have the finest canvas available!

Ground Coffee-Getting closer to the coffee cup
The grinding process allows us to maximize the extraction of the coffee flavor and aroma. Is it not the scent of fresh ground coffee one of the most appreciated ones? Just do not take too long appreciating it, because within a couple of minutes the oxidation process will take away most of its flavor and aroma.
