What is National Cappuccino Day?
Chatting in a café or curled on the couch, Americans like their cappuccinos. It’s an elegant drink. National Cappuccino Day celebrates this concoction of espresso, steamed milk, and foam.
Crafting a cappuccino can be challenging. The ratio of foam in the milk, the quality of the espresso, and the art of the pour demand focus and patience.
The cappuccino name hails from the Capuchin friars, a branch of the Franciscan order in the Roman Catholic Church. The Capuchins wore a hooded habit with a color similar to this mixture of frothed milk and espresso. The cappuccino origin story is murky, but the beverage’s popularity boomed after World War II with major improvements to espresso machines.
Cappuccinos take espresso to another level, and National Cappuccino Day is the chance to enjoy one of coffee’s more refined arts.
