How to recognise a perfect cappuccino
A cappuccino must be well-balanced, without any “clear-cut” flavours. The aromas of the espresso are toned down and mellowed by the texture, taste and aromas of the milk.
To assess a cappuccino, start by looking at the froth: it must be completely free of bubbles and must be glossy.
Now begin the tasting. First of all, sip twice to see whether the feel is the same both times. In fact, a cappuccino should produce the same effect as the foamy head of a beer, with each sip always having the same feel. The cappuccino must be a “cappuccino through and through”, to the very last sip.
