What Goes In First Coffee Or Milk In Cappuccino?
Espresso goes in first, followed by the steamed milk and then topped with milk foam in a cappuccino.
How Do You Layer A Cappuccino?
To layer a cappuccino, the barista first pulls a shot of espresso and pour it into the cup. They then use a milk frother to steam milk and create a creamy, velvety texture. The steamed milk is poured over the espresso, creating a distinctive contrast of colors between the dark espresso and the light milk. Finally, the barista will add the milk foam on top of the steamed milk, completing the layering. The barista may also use a spoon to smooth and shape the foam, creating a more visually appealing presentation.
