A cappuccino is traditionally served with three distinct layers: espresso, steamed milk, and milk foam.
Stirring the cappuccino would mix these layers together and alter the traditional taste and texture of the drink.
It is generally not recommended to mix a cappuccino, instead, it should be enjoyed with the distinct layers as intended.
