    what do you mean you have a commercial machine? Espresso is the coffee that goes into a cappuccino...I am assuming you have a super auto...you should have a auto frother or a steam wand on it...if not you can not make a cappuccino. Lets start with the machine you have...you need to talk to your manager or store owner about being trained properly. Where are you located?

    just off to work so will get some more info. i work in a football club bar in the uk approx 2-3000 customers mainly drinking beer twice a week, we introduced the coffee machine at the start of the season as requested by customers(fair trade coffee) i would like to get some more training but is down the list as most of our sales are in beer.
    thanks

    espresso is the strong coffee that goes into the cappucino. a cappucino consists of mainly froth formed by keeping the wand tip at the surface of the milk. along with the froth theres the espresso and little bit of milk and the rest froth. lattes are the opposite. it still has the espresso but more milk to froth ratio.
