Cappuccino or Latte?

I can guarantee answering several questions is not what you want to do first thing in the morning.  Unfortunately, it’s inevitable.  We have questions to ask like “What type of drink?” or “What size would you like?”.  You may just want a simple espresso coffee with steamed milk.  Still, there is another question “Cappuccino or Latte?”

Now, what does that mean?  It’s hard to answer questions when you don’t even know what you are choosing between.  I had no idea what the differences or similarities were between the two drinks until I started working in the coffee shop.  So I am here to help you; let me explain, so this question doesn’t have to be so mysterious.

Latte is a coffee drink that is espresso with steamed milk poured in over it.  The milk is only steamed so it has very little foam.

Cappuccinos are also made with espresso but the steamed milk poured over is frothed.  This results in more foam in the milk and an airier drink.

So there you have it!  It’s that simple.  Next time we ask you “Cappuccino or Latte?”, you can answer with confidence!
