What does it taste like? How much caffiene is in a Cappuccino? Can you cet a decaf Cappuccino? Does that effect the flavor? What are some good roasts of coffee bean? How much does decafenating change the flavor of coffee?

A: Espresso is very strong coffee, and that's exactly how it tastes. Yes, you can get decaf. No, it doesn't affect the flavor. Cappuccino has steamed milk in the espresso. Yes, you can also get decaf since the "cappuccino" only means w/ steamed milk. Not sure about the caffeine content difference...I'm sure espresso has more caffeine (I'm a coffee junkie & it still gives me a jolt when I drink it!). My favorite picks are any Jamaican coffee, any 'Kona' coffee, and always 'Starbucks House Blend' & 'Seattles Best Henry's Blend' (my absolute favorite) - both are very smooth, but with a bold taste. Well, my own good advice about "Flavored Coffees": Yes, they're okay because that depends upon which brands are perfect blends like Mocchas! See some of them have caffeine-free or rest could be 'Instant' too. Espresso is a quickly-brewed coffee beverage that is dark roasted, fine-ground and brewed under pressure a shot at a time. It is crowned with "crema", the product of proper brewing. Cappucino is brewed Espresso topped with steamed milk and froth, not sweetened unless you ask. You can get decaf. It tastes the same. I like dark or between roast coffee - it has a richer, chocolatey flavor. I don't find good coffee tastes any different from decaf. I don't know anything about that, but I know that you should really try a 'Mocha Frappichino' at 'STARBUCKS'!!!!! Or, if you don't feel like coffee on days, order the 'Strawberry'n Lemonade Frappichino'!!(At 'Starbucks'!)
