My cup runneth over with cappuccino.
I recently got my machine out. I usually pack it away for the summer.
While cappuccino is good any season, I prefer it through
fall and winter.
My machine is a Mr. Coffee.
I’m not familiar with other brands but
here are a few pointers about mine, which I am familiar with.
1- You can get burned like the dickens if you don’t follow the
2- Never try and clean out the little steamer hole with a toothpick.
It can break off in the hole and stop up the steam and you’ll
never get it out. You will have to take it back and get
a refund, acting like you don’t know why it won’t steam properly. (exaggerated)
Use a needle instead.
3- A good cup is said to be 1/3 cream, 1/3 coffee, 1/3 foam. I have
achieved that a time or two.
4- Don’t try and pour your coffee from the carafe with the lid on.
The lid will fall off into your cup and you will loose all that great
tasting foam on your counter, like I did here. I have done this
a zillion times (exaggerated again), and still try to preform this
5- If you do loose your foam just top it off with more coffee.
It still tastes pretty good despite the fact that it isn’t perfection
in a cup.
