How to Make a Cappuccino at Home with L'OR Espresso and the L'OR BARISTA System
  1. Use your L'OR BARISTA Coffee and Espresso System to make a shot (or two) of espresso.
  2. Top it with equal parts steamed milk and milk foam. This is done by warming a few ounces of milk on a stovetop until it begins to release steam.
  3. Once you've poured some over the espresso in your cup, whip the rest of the milk in the pan with a handheld frother or whisk.
  4. Add the foam to the top of your drink and enjoy.

A cappuccino is a classic espresso beverage which, in Italian coffee culture, is enjoyed only in the early or mid-morning and often accompanied by a breakfast pastry. It's made with equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and milk foam, lending a rich, frothy mouthfeel to each sip.

For an iced cappuccino, follow the steps above, but give the espresso a few moments to cool before pouring it over ice. Follow it with cold milk instead of steamed milk and complete the process with an equal amount of cold frothed milk on top.
