Cappuccino is a typical Italian beverage made from espresso and milk. Cappuccino is usually defined as 1/3 espresso, 1/3 heated milk and 1/3 milk is whipped until frothy. Another definition says 1/3 espresso and 2/3 microfoam. Cappuccino is different than latte macchiato, which consists mostly of milk and a little foam. ("Dry Cappuccino" contains less milk.)
In Italian cappuccino drink is almost always only in the morning for breakfast. In some other countries cappuccino is consumed throughout the day or after dinner.
In addition to a good espresso, the most important element in making the cappuccino is the texture and temperature of milk. Well-trained barista cappuccino created microfoam milk by inserting air bubbles very smooth into the milk. This makes the milk very smooth and sweet.
Ideally cappuccino made on a ceramic coffee mug that has a capacity to store heat much better than glass or paper. In certain places, skilled baristas create latte art when pouring milk that has been heated to the right into the espresso, creating designs such as apples, hearts, leaves, and leaf series.
