Homemade Cappuccino

Last night we had a fabulous dinner at Ca 'Del Sole and with dessert my husband had a cappuccino. It had been so long since I had one, I usually order a latte, and I loved it. So for breakfast this morning I decided to make my own. I don't have a milk frother but I improvised with a pot of hot milk and my immersion blender. It worked perfectly. The milk was steamy, frothy, creamy and delicious.

I love this cup and saucer. My sister gave me 2 of them for my birthday a few years ago. Makes me smile whenever I use them.

 Anthony Bourdain had a cappuccino in Rome on his new show The Layover and it showed the Italians finishing their drink by using a spoon to eat the cream at the end. Delicious!

You'll need an espresso maker for this drink. I use the 12-cup stovetop one. I've had a fancy electric one in the past that didn't make espresso nearly as well as this one does.

Do you make fancy coffee drinks at home? What's your favorite?


  1. For awhile I did peppermint mochas. I used peppermint mocha coffee creamer and dark chocolate almond milk. It got old though. I'd love to have an espresso maker. It's on the list along with a vitamix!

  2. mmmmmmmmmm! Love fancy coffee drinks :). I never make them at home

  3. What a perfect treat! I love cappuccinos!

  4. Wow! Your home is like a mini cafe now...Your cappuccino is very professional made.

  5. I have that same espresso maker in my motor home - it makes camping so much tastier! Your cappuccino looks wonderful.
