CappuccinoCappuccino : Traditionally, one-third espresso, one-third steamed milk, and one-third microfoam or milk froth. Sometimes topped (upon request) with a light dusting of cocoa powder/flaked or cinnamon or cardamom. CafÉ CrÈme is the French name for Cappuccino.


Dry Cappuccino : espresso with more foam and less steamed milk.

Wet Cappuccino
Wet Cappuccino

Cafe Breva : A cappuccino made with half and half milk, instead of whole milk. The theory is that the mix gives a richer, creamier flavor. You should be aware, before trying this for yourself, that half and half is much harder to foam.
