CAPPUCCINO COFFEE: CREAMY, TASTY, ICONIC

The best recipe to prepare one of the world's Italian most beloved drinks in a few simple steps.

By Lavazza Team 2/3 minutes

Beloved the world over, it is one of the most iconic drinks. While some people cannot start their day without drinking a cappuccino, others prefer to enjoy it during their afternoon or evening break.

Ladies and gentlemen: the Coffee Cappuccino!   

Once upon a time, its name referred to its similarity with the brown colour of the Capuchin friar’s robe. Its origins date back to a very popular legend that links its name to a Friulian presbytery who, for the first time, decided to correct the strong taste of coffee with a dash of milk. For this reason, in the twentieth century, thanks to the introduction on the market of the first espresso coffee machines, the beverage began to take the form we know today.

To prepare this iconic beverage, we suggest using blends such as Intenso. An intense, full-bodied, and well-rounded espresso made from a combination of Central and South American Arabica and Asian and African Robusta.
