Our cappuccino is a coffee-based drink made primarily from espresso and milk. Where our recipe differs is that we make "dry" cappuccinos; meaning that we use more foam than milk. This keeps the cappuccino insulated so they stay hotter longer, and is much lighter.

According to legend, the word cappuccino comes from the Capuchin monastic order. In 1683, soldiers fighting for Marco d'Aviano, a monk from the order, found a hoard of coffee following a victory over the Ottomans in the Battle of Vienna. The coffee was too strong for the European's tastes, so they diluted it with cream and honey. The resulting brown beverage matched the robes of the monk, and was dubbed cappuccino after the order. However, it should be noted that this event predates espresso, one the key ingredient of a cappuccino by nearly 300 years. It is more likely that this event did lead to the popularization of coffee in the West and its rapid spread throughout Europe.
