Coffee Type for Cappuccino

A cappuccino is 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, and 1/3 frothed milk.

Espresso doesn’t refer to a type of coffee, but rather the brewing method used to make it. Any type of coffee bean can be used, and which type–arabica or robusta–depends on your location and coffee establishment. In Italy, for example, many espresso blends are based on dark-roasted robusta.

Espresso is made by forcing water through coffee grounds under pressure.
