    Do you put whipped cream on hot cappuccinos or lattes?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm curious. When you go to a coffee shop, do you ask for whipped cream on top of your hot cappuccinos or lattes? Does the barista ask you if you want whipped cream?

    I have a hard time understanding why someone would want to have whipped cream put on top of their espresso drinks, especially when the coffee is topped with a creamy milk foam or froth.

    Personally, when I'm making a coffee drink for a customer, I don't ask them if they want whipped cream on top. But, some people seem to automatically expect it to be there when I hand them their coffee, and they act like I'm shortchanging them. It's annoying to have to take it back to add the whipped cream. I don't have a problem putting whipped cream on the iced cappuccinos, mochas, and lattes.....but it really bothers me to have to put it on the hot drinks (except hot chocolate). It just doesn't feel right.

    No I would never dream of getting whipped cream on top. I do order cappuccino often when I go to a shop I have never been to before. I definitely agree with, why would you need it on top of the foam.

    No, I don't. Otherwise it's not latte anymore

    Hi,

    The barista always asks if I'd like whipped cream with my hot latte or cappuccinos, however, I prefer to drink it without whipped cream. I like it better when whipped creams are in frappes.

    Same here, I tried cappuccino with some whipped cream but I realized that whipped cream just "covers" delicius taste of the coffee.

    There is an italian recipe with whipped cream: espresso panna. Just an espresso (1oz or 30ml) and whipped cream.

    But when I make a cappuccino or a latte, I prefer follow the traditional recipe: an espresso and steamed milk, always making latte art. Nobody could ask me to pouring some whipped cream on a cute heart or tulip.

    As someone that swears by iced coffee this OP has upset me! I’m not a fan of caffeine, I hate the comedowns you experience in the day that feel like your brain has been totally zapped. I do however enjoy the taste of coffee and iced tea gives you a refreshing boost first thing in a morning.
    I tend to spice things up by adding no calorie sweetener and blasting it with some
    mosa cream chargers. I understand this isn’t for everyone but I adore it!

    Whether we think its proper coffee etiquette or not this is very popular among the younger crowds.

    My wife likes her Strarbucks decaf mocha latte. It comes with whipped cream. So when I make her one at home I will put a blast of whipped cream on top. I don't put whipped cream on my own coffee however. I simply heat and froth some skim milk and mix it with my french press or moka pot brew.
