Espresso comes from the Italian word that means "pressed-out," which explains how the coffee drink is made; doppio is Italian for "double", as it's a double espresso, but interestingly, cappuccino takes its origins from an Italian word that refers not to coffee, but to friars.
The Capuchin friars were not only renowned for their missionary work among the poor, but also for the distinctive nature of their dress. They wore simple brown robes with a long, pointed hood that typically hangs down the back. The Italian word for the hood, cappuccio, gave rise to the Italian name for the order - and later became the name for this popular cup of coffee given that the color of the espresso mixed with frothed milk closely resembled that of the Capuchin robe.
A modern day cappuccino is made up from a double shot of espresso, topped with thick, hot, velvety frothed milk and dusted lightly with cocoa powderor cinnamon.
