Cuisinart original

Traditionally, a cappuccino is made by layering equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and
foam. We recommend using a lungo capsule when preparing this drink, but if a stronger
drink is desired, 2 single espresso capsules can be used.


Makes 1 serving


1     lungo espresso capsule
       (or 2 standard espresso capsules)
¹⁄³   cup milk (dairy or nondairy)

1. Put 1 espresso capsule into the unit.
2. Put the milk into a heatproof mug. Hold
the mug in one hand and place under the
steam wand so the bottom of the wand is
just below the surface of the milk at an
angle. Select the Steam function and
press the START/STOP knob to start
steaming. While holding the mug at an
angle, allow the steam to move the milk
around. Once the milk begins to increase in
volume, lift the mug up higher so the steam
wand immerses deeper into the milk (this
will prevent large bubbles from forming and
will make a nice fine milk foam). When the
foam has almost reached the top of the
mug and you can feel that the milk in the
mug is quite hot, press the START/STOP
knob to stop steaming. Tap the mug a few
times to remove any larger bubbles.
3. Place one mug underneath the brew head
and select Double Espresso if using a
lungo capsule. If using 2 capsules, brew
2 single espressos. Once the espresso has
finished brewing, slowly pour about 3
ounces of the steamed milk into the mug
with the espresso and then spoon 3 to 4
tablespoons of frothed milk on top.
4. Serve immediately.
