Caffeine Trivia 04.28.14

A cappuccino is an Italian coffee drink prepared with espresso, hot milk, and steamed-milk foam. The Italian name ‘cappuccino’ comes from the long, pointed cowl, or cappuccino, that was worn as part of the habit of the Capuchin Order of Friars. In Italian, the word cappuccino also describes espresso coffee mixed or topped with steamed milk or cream, because the color of the coffee resembled the color of the habit of a Capuchin friar. Some people also believe that the term relates to the aspect of a friar’s tonsured (white) head, surrounded by a ring of brown hair.

  1. This was an awesome simple read. I’ve heard stories about the history of coffee and read folk stories about coffee. I love that I’ll now have another great story to share. Espresso is my favorite style of enjoying coffee. Thanks for the blog post. Aloha.
