How to make a Cappuccino at home ☕️

At Dualit, we love playing the role of a barista and we're not the only ones! Cappuccinos are proving to be one of the most popular types of coffee in the UK. Did you know that the cappuccino originated in Italy and is traditionally consumed once a day with breakfast?

In the UK a huge 65% of coffee is drunk at home and Dualit is here help you make that coffee the best tasting it can be.

Try creating your own by following these simple steps, to create an upscaled version of your everyday cup of coffee.

To make the best cappuccinos, we use the Dualit 3 in 1 or Espress-auto coffee machines.

  1. Start by choosing your favourite coffee blend or single origin coffee.
  2. Warm your cup by filling it with hot water and then discarding.
  3. Make the espresso. The perfect shot should be 60ml and fill approximately 1/3 of your mug.
  4. Steam the milk until frothy, paying close attention to create the correct ratio of foam to heated milk. If you don't have a steamer, Dualit's Milk Frother can do all the hard work for you.
  5. Pour the hot milk followed by the frothed milk directly into the coffee. This should be an even split of 60ml each. If you're feeling creative, why not try some latte art?
  6. Dust the top with cocoa powder.
  7. Sit back, relax and enjoy your very own luxurious, full-bodied cup of frothed, milky coffee. Mmmmmm...

The perfect cappuccino is a combination of equal parts espresso, heated milk and frothed milk.

We have created this handy guide to assist you in brewing your very own creamy cappuccino!
