Cappuccinos!

I am a cappuccino lover! I love the texture of the foamy milk. Comparing to cow’s milk, almond milk does not make enough foam, but soy milk does. Since I am vegetarian, I use soy milk when preparing a capuccinno. I always sprinkle cinnamon on top because it gives it a sweet note. Besides, cinnamon is very helpful for the body. It has been tested that this spice reduce sugar levels in the blood and when consumed with honey it can relieve a cold.

For the foamy milk, I used a milk frother bought in Bed, Bath and Beyond. You can also found it in Marshalls, Walmart or in the Internet.

You must be asking yourself what is the difference between a latte and a cappucino. It is very simple: the foamy milk. That is why in a cafeteria you will see that they are always the same

price. The only difference is that the latte does not have foamy milk, but cappuccino does.

In the beginnings, around 1800, cappuccino meant coffee with cream and sugar and it came from  Vienna, Italy. This word literally means hood.

The Viennese style for the cappuccinos is whipped cream with cinnamon or chocolate shavings.

Give yourself a cappuccino and relax with a great conversation, reflection or reading.
