Italian coffee drink: Cappuccino

Cappuccino is the strong coffee covered ('cappuccino' is a small hat or hood) with a layer of hot frothy milk topped with a dash of chocolate powder, 'caffelatte' (milk coffee), usually half coffee and half milk in a large cup or glass.

In the classic Italian-American cuisine, a good cappuccino consists one-third frothed milk, one-third steamed milk, and one-third espresso in a heavy 6-ounce cup.

In Italy, the milk is not frothed as thoroughly as in the United States, and is presented as a heavier, soupy foam that picks up and combines with the espresso, rather than floating on top of it, as is often the case with the lighter, drier froth typical of American production.

Cappuccino originated in 18th-century Viennese coffeehouses, where it was known as kapuziner. The addition of cream and sugar gave the coffee a brown color that was reminiscent of the hooded robes worn by friars of the Capuchin order.
