Several cappuccino recipes
Cappuccino can be prepared on the basis of Turkish coffee, and on the basis of espresso. When the coffee is ready, you need to froth the milk. This can be done using a cappuccinatore in a coffee machine, a French press. After pouring milk into the pitcher (stainless steel jug), turn on the cappuccinatore and immerse its spout into the jug, almost at the edge of the milk. Slightly move the nose in different directions. The frothed milk will double in volume and acquire a creamy taste. At the same time, milk is heated to 70 degrees, it is impossible to overheat. The milk is then poured into the espresso.
Foam with coffee is usually combined in two ways:
Milk is added to a cup of espresso, and then foam is laid out with a spoon.
Milk with foam is quickly mixed and poured into the cup, while the foam rises.
The method of making such coffee is standard, but you can always add some of your own delights:
Viennese cappuccino: add boiling milk to 100 ml of espresso, whip the cream, put it on top and decorate with chocolate chips.
Cappuccino with cinnamon: sprinkle a portion of espresso with cinnamon, pour the frothed milk into a cup of coffee, first in the center and then around the circumference, sprinkle the foam with chocolate and cinnamon on top.
Cappuccino can be different if you add various syrups to it: caramel, vanilla, nut, almond, mint, chocolate, etc., approximately 2-25 gr each.
Latte is coffee with milk.
The main difference between this drink and cappuccino is that when brewing latte, espresso is added to milk, and not vice versa. The recipe is quite simple: Whilst the espresso is being prepared in the machine, or boiled on the stove, whip the milk into a high foam with a cappuccinatore or a blender. Pour milk into an Irish glass, carefully spread the foam, and then pour in a thin stream of coffee, which, if everything is done correctly, lies in a layer between the milk and foam. You can decorate with grated chocolate or cinnamon, you can add syrup to the bottom of the glass. An Irish glass is served on a saucer, standing on a napkin (may come in handy if the glass is hot).
Moccachino (mocha), chocolate latte
A type of latte that includes an additional ingredient – chocolate (in the form of cocoa powder, syrup or hot chocolate).
Required ingredients: 1 tsp. ground coffee beans; 50 ml of milk; 50 mg of quality dark chocolate; whipped cream (ready-made); chocolate chips (for decoration) As in a classic latte, the drink is served in an Irish glass, and lays down in light layers: hot chocolate, syrup (if necessary) milk, espresso. Place whipped cream on top and sprinkle with grated chocolate / cinnamon / coconut shells, etc.
Macchiato, which means something like “spotted” in Italian, is espresso coffee with a dash of frothed milk. At first glance, the drink looks like a small cappuccino, but with the same ingredients that are used to make cappuccino, macchiato is much stronger and more aromatic in taste.

Classic coffee glace is a kind of cooling dessert that consists of cold coffee with a scoop of ice cream. Approximate proportions are 3 parts coffee to 1 part ice cream.
A ball of ice cream is added to chilled coffee, decorated with almond petals, chocolate chips or topping.
To sweeten coffee, you can add syrup or honey.
To make an alcoholic cocktail, just add a liquor, such as Baileys or Cointreau, for a creamy or citrus flavor, and replace the ice cream with crushed ice.
