    Cappuccino versus Latte

    What is the really big difference between a Latte and a cappuccino? Just the layer of froth that sits on top? I know that cappuccinos are made by pulling a shot of espresso and then foaming the milk for the milk addititive as well as the "foam" produced, but how exactly is a latte served?

    About the same way but with around 6 to 8 ounces (or more depending on the drink) of steamed milk and maybe a 1/4 to 1/2 inch of froth on top of that. Espresso, syrup (if any), milk, and froth finish.
    Have you ever walked through the aisle of your local grocer and smelled the death of a dying bean?

    Cappuccino is espresso and equal portions of steamed and foamed milk.

    Latte is more steamed milk and a little of foam on top.

    An easier way to remember is:

    Cappuccino- Cap of Foam

    Latte- A lot of milk

    Cappuccino - 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, 1/3 foam

    Latte - Espresso and filled up with steamed milk (NO foam)

    capp vs latte

    No froth on Latte, unless you're adding whipped cream for a Royale, then I add just a small amount to support the cream. I add just a dash of cinnamon on my classic cappuccinos, as I've learned is done in Italy - my customers love it. You can add it to the froth, but I put it in first & mix w/espresso before adding milk.
