National Cappuccino Day Today: Have A Brew-tiful Day!

NATIONAL CAPPUCCINO DAY: NOVEMBER 8

WISHING ALL CAPPUCCINO LOVERS A BREW-TIFUL DAY!

 

Are you a cappuccino lover? Then today is your day! 

 

Cassandra Clare (City of Ashes) said: “as long as there was coffee in the world, how bad could things be?” That's how I feel about cappuccino... "as long as there was cappuccino in the world, how bad could things be?"

 

Have you ever wondered how cappuccino came to be? Typically regarded as myth, it's said that a 17th century Capuchin monk, Marco d'Aviano, invented cappuccino after the Battle of Vienna in 1683, and that it was named after the color of capuchin robes which are similar in color to an espresso mixed with milk. No one actually knows whether this is true. But did you know that it was actually in German that "Kapuziner" was first applied to coffee? Cappuccino was more widely introduced when the espresso coffee machine was invented in Italy, with the first patent being filed by Luigi Bezzera in 1901. After World War II espresso machines were simplified, making them more available for cafes and restaurants. It wasn’t until the late 1940s, actually, that the word “cappuccino” made its way into common usage.

 

Today, cappuccino is still the preferred breakfast beverage in Italy, where cappuccino is generally consumed early in the day as part of breakfast. Generally, Italians do not drink cappuccino with meals other than breakfast.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... my built-in Miele coffee maker also makes cappuccino, but I'm usually too lazy to do it. We have a couple of restaurants in Charlotte where the cappuccino is excellent.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty hi Jeff... that is certainly one way to put it! But you just may be right that a good cappucinno is a gift from God.

Kathy Streib hi Kathy.... by 6:30 am I'm on my third cup of coffee and there's always one more later in the afternoon. I have a built-in Miele coffee maker but have had my eye on a Jura for a long time.

Nina Hollander, Broker we've had our Jura since 2003 and love it. We have had to send it in over the years when it has issues but it is well worth it. We drink too much coffee to have the Keurig or the other single cup coffee makers. Call me if you have any questions.

Kathy Streib hi Kathy... same here with my built-in Miele. It needs some maintenance now and then, but it's been running strong for almost 16 years.

Occasionally, I will have one as a sweet treat, a cafe latte with no flavors is more to my taste, Nina. I have t-shirt that says, Red, White and Brews! Have a fantastic day!

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! hi Wanda... I'd have a cappuccino every day if I could! Are you sure that t-shirt doesn't refer to beer? :)))

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho good morning, Mark... since I was a kid I've loved everything about coffee (even though my Mother did not allow me to drink it). And I love coffee flavored desserts, coffee in just about any form, coffee ice cream, Kahlua, etc.
