Cappuccino Fiorentino...

Bahamas A traditional cappuccino is usually served in a white cup, similar to a tea cup,(around 150 ml.)
The correct proportions are: 1/3 of just made espresso coffee, 2/3 of froth. The froth is prepared as follows:
  • Fill a small jug to 1/3 of its capacity with fresh milk.
  • Immerse the frothing arm found on all electric espresso machines just below the surface of the milk.
  • Turn on the steam and gradually lower the jug, allowing the milk to froth up while still keeping the froth arm just below the surface.
  • Add half of the froth into the espresso coffee.
  • Add some sweet cocoa powder or grated chocolate (dark).
  • Add the rest of the froth into your beverage.
  • Off with a dash of cocoa or grated chocolate again.
