  • 2 min read

Would you like to make your own Cappuccino at home? We've got a great way for you to make that perfect cup in your own kitchen without the need for a special milk frother

Make a Cappuccino at homr

First of all make a short Americano otherwise known as an Espresso. You can do this in a number of ways:

  1. Use ground coffee/coffee maker (Nespresso Machine etc)
  2. Add a small amount of boiling water to two teaspoons of instant coffee
  3. Add 50ml of boiling water to one of your CAFFIN8 Americano coffee cups

 Make a small Americano or Espresso

Now for the milk.. We have two ways for you to make the perfect milk:

1) With a saucepan

  • Heat milk in a saucepan until the milk is almost boiling
  • Remember to keep stirirng the whole time so that a skin doesn't form
  • Pour the milk into a jug
  • Whisk the milk thoroughly for about 2mins to create a thick layer of foam
    • You need to keep whisking until all the large bubbles are gone
  • Swirl the milk in a circular motion so the milk swills around the jug (x2)
  • Tap the jug on the side twice
  • Repeat those last two steps one more time
  • Now pour the milk over your Espresso
  • We suggest using a spoon to pull the thicker foam onto your drink
  • If not... just pour slowly

2) In the microwave

  • Pour Milk into a jug - ensure it's microwave safe!
  • Heat the milk on 15-25second intervals, stirring between each interval to ensure the milk doesn't form a skin
  • Repeat the above until the milk is almost boiling
  • Whisk the milk thoroughly for about 2mins to create a thick layer of foam
    • You need to keep whisking until all the large bubbles are gone
  • Swirl the milk in a circular motion so the milk swills around the jug (x2)
  • Tap the jug on the side twice
  • Repeat those last two steps one more time
  • Now pour the milk over your Espresso
  • We suggest using a spoon to pull the thicker foam onto your drink
  • If not... just pour slowly
