A cup of coffee, made with a espresso base, which is then topped with milk. This is then frothed up with steam, to form a foamy top. A scattering of chocolate or cinnamon powder often finishes the drink. In Italy, its home country, cappuccino is a morning-only drink. It"s so called, because its colour resembles the robes of the Capuchin order.
