A Coffee Question For Coffee Lovers?
Q: How can I make a Mocha or Cappuccino without one of those fancy machines? I only have a regular coffee maker.
A: Mochaccinos and Cappuccinos are both based on Espresso, which is a type of coffee that's brewed under high pressure. In other words, you won't be able to make either of those drinks with your regular coffee maker, but you don't necessarily need a complicated machine, either. You can even get smaller Espresso makers, and even ones that you just use on the stovetop. All you need is a whipper. An old fashioned wiry thing every kitchen has. Pour some cream, or powder and whip them together, and if you have a handy store bought whip cream dab it on top of your coffee and sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon on top. Voila ! You've made a Cappuccino as fancy as the ones at Serendipity in NYC. There is Cappuccino powder mix you can buy. You just boil some water in the microwave, and mix it in, and ta-dah! Instant cappuccino. It tastes just as good as anything else, too (of course, depending on what kind you buy).
