What's Really in My Cappuccino?

The Cappuccino (or 'Cap' if you are the one wearing the green apron) is a very popular espresso drink. At the same time it is one of the simplest drinks Starbucks has to offer aside from regular drip coffee. So what is in it? I'll show ya

1.) you're cap begins with fresh brewed espresso
2.) next the barista (the coffee maker) uses a wand to shoot steam into a pitcher of milk
3.) the steam is concentrated onto the top of the milk, making it turn to a frothy foam
4.) we fill you cup halfway with steamed milk, then we fill the other half with the foam
5.) so basically we go: espresso - milk - foam

*The example on the right is topped with a little cinnamon for some extra kick
