Cappuccino, a drink of espresso, milk and milk foam, takes its name from its color being reminiscent of the red/brown of the robes and hoods worn by monks and nuns of the Capuchin order in 17th century Europe.



  • 2 shots brewed espresso
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • ground cinnamon, optional


Froth milk with the "hot froth" function. Prepare espresso shots in to a large, heat-safe mug, ideally a cappuccino mug. Pour frothed milk out of frother into the mug, taking care to keep foam behind. Top with foam. Sprinkle with cinnamon or chocolate shavings for added appeal, if desired.
