The cappuccino takes its name from the habit of the Capuchin Monks (“cappuccio” means hood in Italian). According to the legend that appeared in the Austrian press in 1983 on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of the Turkish siege of Vienna . The cappuccino was an invention of the Capuchin monk Marco d’Aviano, which appeared in 1683 , after the Battle of Vienna.

The drink has always been known by its Italian name since the espresso machine with which it is normally made is an Italian invention. The 1901 patent is from Luigi Bezzera . Cappuccino spread throughout Europe , becoming popular and acquiring its final form in 1950 .



The traditional Ingredients are espresso coffee and very hot and frothy milk , in the following proportion:

  • 1/3 of espresso type coffee.
  • 1/3 of milk.
  • 1/3 of milk foam.


It is normally prepared with an espresso machine. The barista is responsible for introducing very hot milk into the espresso, at a temperature of around 70º and a pressure of 0.7 to 1.0 atmospheres , resulting in a foam layer of one cm. thick, which must be compact and persistent.

The foam is formed by introducing small air bubbles into the milk, giving the cappuccino its characteristic velvety texture.

Garnish with cinnamon powder and accompany with cookies.

To serve

It is served in a ceramic cup of about 150cc, ideal for heat retention. In some places, experts baristas create art latte to pouring the milk correctly cremated to the steam in the coffee espresso, making designs, such as apples , hearts, leaves and roses.


  • Viennese cappuccino. In the same cupserved, add a double coffee and cover it with plenty of fresh whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon and bitter cocoa .
