How to Make a Cappuccino | Perfect Coffee

My name is Mike Jones, and I’m a barista at
Third Rail Coffee right by Washington Square Park in New York City. I’m going to teach you some basic coffee-making
skills. I’m gonna show you how to make a cappuccino. A cappuccino is traditionally between five
and six ounces. You have your shot of espresso, some milk,
and then foam on top. Usually it’s gonna be in thirds, which is
two ounces of espresso, two ounces of milk, two ounces of foam, but somewhere around there
is good. Officially, they say between one and two centimeters
of foam on top, but there are many different interpretations. So, let’s start off by pulling the shot, steaming
the milk, and then pouring it. OK, so we have our espresso, we have our milk. Since I’ve let more air into the milk on this
cappuccino we can do a little bit extra texturing, which is just swirling it around. You can give it some side to side shakes to
incorporate the foam into the center. Sometimes if you’ve added just a little bit
too much, you can pour about an ounce off the top. All right, now just pour and that is a delicious
looking cappuccino.

  58. simon suckerr says:

    cappucino is 30 ml espresso, 50% steamed milk and 50% the foam is very less and steaming was too early..this is latte coz latte has 10% foam and that foam is too less to call it a cappuccino

  59. joe pesci says:

    for everyone that is not Italian and is commenting , once for ever cappuccino is not made of foam but CREAM!!stop making this undrinkable foamy shit

  60. Iridescent Noise says:

    the way this dude looks the music should be some deathcore instead. Metal goes with coffee like whiskey and coke.

  73. Hongfa Yianprayong says:

    Serious quality.>>> This coffee maker is the Cadillac of drip systems. We recently switched from K-cups in an effort to save a little money and reduce waste. This is no Mr. Coffee. It is easy to use, it has robust features, and it makes great coffee. I would recommend this to anyone who misses having a pot of hot coffee waiting in our single-serving world.

  74. Gregory Wolff says:

  83. Ryan Chalmers says:

    Fuck I hat this guy

  84. Anthony W Lee says:

    When ordering a cappuccino I expect there to be a dome of smooth and soft white foam. I do not expect a latte-ish coffee… you're supposed to cap a cappuccino with a dome of foam. No matter if it's a dry or wet the end should look the same, with a dome of foam no matter how thick or thin it is.
