Elevate your mornings with our perfect cappuccino recipe. Indulge in the harmony of espresso, velvety milk, and delicate foam.


1 shot of freshly brewed espresso 1/3 cup of whole milk 1/3 cup of heavy cream 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar (adjust to taste) Cocoa powder or cinnamon for garnish (optional)

1. Brew Espresso

Start by brewing a shot of espresso using your espresso machine or a stovetop espresso maker. Ensure it's rich and concentrated for the best flavor.

2. Heat the Milk

In a small saucepan, combine the whole milk and heavy cream. Heat the mixture over low to medium heat. This should take about 2-3 minutes.

3. Froth the Milk:

Once the milk is heated, remove it from the heat source and use a milk frother to create a thick, creamy foam.

4. Prepare Cup

Pour the freshly brewed espresso into a cappuccino cup or a small coffee mug.

5. Add Sugar 

If you like your cappuccino sweet, add a tablespoon of granulated sugar to the espresso and stir until it dissolves. Adjust the amount of sugar to your taste.

6. Pour Frothed Milk:

Carefully pour the frothed milk into the cup with the espresso. Hold back the foam with a spoon to let the liquid milk flow first, then spoon the foam on top.

7. Garnish (Optional):

If you want to add a touch of flair to your cappuccino, sprinkle a pinch of cocoa powder or cinnamon over the foam for a beautiful and aromatic finish. Now Enjoy.
