Italians love their coffee. A hot cup of cappuccino and a buttery croissant is the typical breakfast in Italy. In fact, cappuccino which is actually a delectable work of art is amongst the favorite beverages all around the world. It is typically smaller in volume than a caffè latte, with a thicker layer of micro foam. Cappuccino is the richest of all types of coffee types and hence uses cream instead of milk as the primary ingredient along with double espresso and steamed milk foam.

METHOD 1

Ingredients and equipment:

•    1 cup of water

Instructions:

1. Boil a cup of water in a kettle or pot. Mix the boiled water in a mug with 1 to 2 teaspoons of coffee granules. Add desired amount of sugar.

2. Pour desired amount of milk (whether you like it dark or light) into a small pot. Heat it until it reaches a boil. Remove from heat once so that it begins to bubble and rise.
