It’s national cappuccino day, and we’re celebrating with our favorite morning beverage! Let’s explore the history of this delicious drink and find out how to make the perfect cup at home. Plus, if you want to grab one while you’re on the road, I’ve listed some great Metro Detroit coffee shops you can visit!

The cappuccino is a classic Italian coffee drink that has been around for centuries. The name comes from the Italian word for hood or cape, referring to the similarity between the color of the drink and the robes worn by monks. The first cappuccinos were made with espresso and milk, but over time different variations have emerged. Today, cappuccinos are typically made with espresso, steamed milk, and foam.

Cappuccinos were originally designed to be enjoyed in the morning, but they can be enjoyed any time of day. If you’re looking to make your own cappuccino at home, here’s what you need:

Ingredients:
-1 shot of espresso
-1/3 cup of milk
-1 tablespoon of sugar
-½ cup of steamed milk
-½ cup of frothed milk
-Chocolate shavings (optional)
