Cappuccino Coffee Recipe

Indulge in the perfect blend of espresso, steamed milk, and frothy foam with our delicious cappuccino coffee recipe. A cozy classic awaits!

  • Espresso machine
  • Small saucepan
  • Milk frother
  • Whisk
  • Cup
  • 1 Shot Espresso
  • 1 Cup Whole milk
  • 1 Tbsp Granulated Sugar ((optional))
  • Cocoa powder ((optional))
  1. Brew a shot of espresso using an espresso machine or a stovetop espresso maker. If you don’t have either, you can also use a strong cup of brewed coffee as a substitute.

    2. While the espresso is brewing, heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally to prevent scorching. Heat until the milk starts steaming, but do not let it boil.

    3. Once the milk is steaming, remove it from the heat and froth it using a milk frother or a handheld frother. If you don’t have any frothers, you can also achieve frothy milk by vigorously whisking it in a saucepan until it becomes frothy.

    4. If desired, add sugar to the frothed milk and stir until dissolved.

    5. Pour the hot espresso into a cup.

    6. Slowly pour the frothed milk over the espresso, holding back the foam with a spoon to create a layered effect. Aim for a ratio of 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, and 1/3 milk foam.

    7. Gently tap the cup on the countertop to settle the layers and create a smooth surface.

    8. If desired, sprinkle cocoa powder or cinnamon on top of the foam for added flavor and presentation.

    9. Serve immediately and enjoy your homemade cappuccino coffee!
