No visit to the coffee shop is complete without confronting a particularly vexing question—should I get a cappuccino or something else? To make this decision, one needs to understand how the cappuccino stacks up against other popular coffee drinks.
The cappuccino, for starters, is a balanced mix of espresso, steamed milk, and froth.
This three-tiered architecture sets it apart from other coffee beverages.
Consider the latte, for instance.
It also contains espresso and steamed milk, but there is only a small amount of froth.
This translates to a creamier, milkier taste—different from cappuccino's frothy goodness.
Then there is the espresso, which is essentially concentrated coffee.
Being the base for many coffee drinks, including cappuccinos, espressos are more potent and richer in flavor.
Next, we have the Americano, created by diluting an espresso shot with hot water.
It provides a longer-lasting coffee experience, but does not contain any milk.
A far cry from the milky-frothy world of cappuccinos.
Finally, the flat white—similar to cappuccino, but with microfoam milk and no froth layer.
It offers a smoother, velvety mouthfeel compared to the bubbly, frothy cappuccino.
In a nutshell, choosing between a cappuccino and another coffee drink boils down to personal preference.
If you're after a balanced trio of espresso, steamed milk, and froth, the cappuccino is your cuppa.
