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?
