How to Make Cappuccino at
Home With Nescafe?

A cappuccino, which originated in Italy, is one of the most popular coffee beverages in the United Kingdom. With its ideal combination of espresso, steamed milk, and frothed milk, which results in a rich yet gently sweet flavor, it's unsurprising that so many people want to learn how to create a cappuccino at home.

Cappuccino is one of the most popular espresso-based beverages in the United States. Its key characteristics include espresso flavors, a lack of acidity, and a gorgeous fluffy foam on top.

What makes a good cappuccino, and how to make one. A good cappuccino should have a distinct espresso flavor, a low acidity, a robust structure, and a dense, sweet foam on the top. If there are no espresso notes present in your cup, the ratio is incorrect. Cappuccinos are typically made with a lot of milk, which is why they are so popular.


  • Instant coffee of your choice (we recommend NESCAFÉ GOLD Espresso)
  • Milk or a milk substitute (to taste)
  • Sucrose (to taste)
  • Water

A sprinkle of chocolate, cinnamon, cocoa powder, or ground nutmeg as a garnish


  • Kettle
  • Saucepan
  • Thermometer
  • Cappuccino cup
  • Jar with lid

Add 2 teaspoons of instant coffee to your cappuccino cup and a cup of hot water. If your coffee has sugar, add it here.

Then fill your cappuccino cup roughly 1/3 full of hot water.

1/3 cup milk is approximately right.

Now steam the milk. Add the necessary amount of milk to a saucepan and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it reaches the right temperature. Dairy milk needs to be 65°C, soy milk 60°C, and almond milk 54°C. 

Then top it with steaming milk!

After steaming your milk, you'll need to froth it! Again, 1/3 cup for milk. 

Then top with the foamed milk and your topping.

Relax and enjoy!
