Personally, I think when it comes to making cappuccino froth, only our "hand" can do a good job.
And here, we would learn how to make cappuccino without the use of any cappuccino machine or even espresso machine. But before that, what is this drink all about? It is actually:
1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk and 1/3 froth.

4. Whisk faster as the temperature increases and slowly you would noticed that the volume of the bubbles begin to swell.
5. Take caution although the heat and the whisking are giving you the froth, do not allow the milk to boil -monitor the temperature carefully. If the milk boils, both your froth and taste will be ruined.
6. After a while, take the saucepan away from the heat source and continue to whisk until the froth double its size. Now, your froth is ready.
