A cappuccino is an espresso based coffee drink that originated in Italy and is traditionally a third espresso, a third steamed milk and a third foam.  There is an art to making the perfect cappuccino as I am sure all you connoisseurs will agree!

Usually, but optional, chocolate powder is sprinkled on the top (for me it is not complete without chocolate sprinkles).  

Cafe’s seem to take pride these days in producing a unique brand stensil to reinforce their brand when sprinkling the chocolate on the top of the cappuccino.

Variations of the drink involve the use of cream instead of milk (naughty but oh so nice) non-dairy milks for those who are lactose intolerant  or who prefer a healthier option.  Apparently it has been known to add flavouring like cinnamon or even flavoured syrups!
