Do You Drink The Foam In
A Cappuccino?

Use equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and foam when preparing your own cappuccino for a delectable morning beverage.

When it comes to cappuccinos, the most important rule is to drink them in the morning. When you drink your cappuccino later in the morning. It is believed to upset your digestion. Cappuccinos contain a lot of dairy, which does not sit well in the stomach in the late afternoon or evening. Drinking your cappuccino first thing in the morning will help you avoid indigestion.

An espresso cappuccino contains one-third espresso as its base. Following the addition of espresso, steamed milk is poured into the coffee, resulting in a foamy top coat. It's a work of art, and should be savored as soon as possible after preparation.

A common problem with cappuccinos is that the microfoam that forms a dome on top of the coffee beverage must be managed in some way. If you immediately drink it after it has been served, you will almost certainly end up with a foamy nose or foamy moustache as a result.

To help avoid the dreaded foam-moustache or foam-nose, use a teaspoon to scoop it up and eat it while you wait for the coffee to reach the desired drinking temperature. This ensures that the drink is finished and that you can enjoy the foam without having to wear it on your face. When stirred, the spoon would cause the froth to cover the entire cup, improving the flavor by reducing some bitterness.
