What is cappuccino espresso
A cappuccino espresso is an Italian coffee drink mixed cappuccino with some hot milk and steamed-milk froth. On the top of cappuccino is often covered with foamed milk. It is made in a steam-producing espresso machine. At first, espresso should be poured into the bottom third of the cup. And then you should add a similar amount of hot milk into the cup. The top third of the drink consists of firm milk. The foam is often drawn with an artistic shape. For a better flavour, you can sprinkle a little chocolate, sugar, cinnamon or other spices onto the top of the drink. You need a teaspoon to enjoy the coffee.
How to make cappuccino espresso
To make a cup of espresso, you should leave enough water in the espresso machine to steam some milk.
Secondly, you need to put espresso in a 5 ounce or larger cup so that you have room for the milk.
And then, you’d better add 3 ounce cold milk to the glass and insert the steam nozzle.
Place nozzle halfway down in milk and leave it in milk for 45 to 60 seconds, or until the milk is hot and there’s enough foam for your preference.
Add 1.5 ounce steamed milk to the cup of espresso.
Spoon some foamed milk onto the top. If you like, sprinkle with ground chocolate, cinnamon or nutmeg.
