Capuccino/ Milk or no milk?
I liked to know a Europeans opinion on the "true" definition of a capuccino. Most of what I've read here states that a cp is 1/3 milk,1/3 foam and 1/3 espresso. My belief has always been that it is strictly espresso with only foam. I think perhpas the true answer is that either definitionis correct depending on what country or even region that your in. Bottom line is that I want to kow the tradition in Italy!! Thanks, and I don't want to hear the Starbucks defintion.

You might want to buy the capuccino VCD from SCAE. It's s detailed video on how to make decorated capuccinos...the Italian way! Pretty good video although the background music through out gets on your nerves a little.Merdeka Coffee (Indonesian Coffee Roasters and relationship coffee specialists) - Antipodean (Coffee - Cafe - Culture)

If I got a cappuccino with whipped cream I'd smack the barista. I've never seen one with whipped cream either here or anywhere in Europe.
The other day this lady ordered a cap from me, and when I served it to her, she said, "this isn't a cappuccino."
To make a long short, I asked her where she usually buys her cappuccinos. And she replied "7-11"... where they have a machine that mixed powdered "milK" with instant "coffee" and "vanilla powdered flava".
I thought that was cute.

I usually just ask my customer what they would like. " a dry or wet" or are they confused over what a Latte' is and what a cappy is......See besides what we all think, what really matters is that your customer gets what they expect, and better than the last place they tryed it.

This is not a good way. There are different names and it makes people confused, in my opinion. We wuld help to make people in a right direction, not else. So, going with the original recipes and it gives your the perfect tastes.
The original recipe for cappuccino in Italy is same amount of espresso, milk and froth. That is really true.
The so called wet and dry cappuccino is just American style and Italian style cappuccino. But we prefer only dry one. The wet one is nothing but milky coffee.Kaffa Cafe, professional coffee service provider and Barista's trainer, for China.
