    cappuccino????

    I just received a combination coffee and expresso/cappuccino machine. To make a cappuccino...what kind of coffee is used? Is there special cappuccino coffee or is it just expresso coffee with the milk? Help

    capps

    All coffee drinks are made with espresso roasted beans except for:

    Cafe AuLait=drip coffee and steamed milk
    Depth Charge/Red Eye/other names=Drip with espresso shots added
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

    A cappucino is espresso,steamed milk,and foamed milk.I make a cappucino with 1/3 each.Espresso can be made with really any coffee,although its grind is finer.You should buy a bag of espresso blend coffee.Since you are beginning I suggest you get a bag of starbucks espresso blend which you can buy at any grocery store.There are tons of blends but starbucks is easiest to find i guess.The directions should of came with it that should tell you how to make a cappuccino unless you got it used.

    Med vs Dark

    Hey, i kinda had a question that goes along with this. For cappuccino's i've heard that a medium or dark roast is best. But which of the two do you prefer? Whats the difference in taste? I just bought a medium Coppenhagen blend... but yea i wanted to ask all cappuccino lovers which roast and which blend they prefer!?

    roasts

    In general I like the murkiest dark roast you can get. From my work experience people who order capps usually want this as well wereas te latte drinkers are looking for the milder roasts.

    As Equus mentioned, roast style varies with each person. Some days I like it dark, most days I like it lighter. Each person has their own preference.
