Creating The Perfect Cappuccino

We have making cappuccinos down to an art. And so will you! Kick back, relax, and enjoy a beautiful cup o' cap with this "cow-to".

  • Prep: 5 min
Yields 1


  • 4 tablespoons (60 ml) brewed espresso
  • ½ cup (125 ml) Canadian whole milk


When you see the Blue Cow Logo on a product, it means it’s made with 100% Canadian quality milk.



Use an espresso machine or manual espresso maker to make two shots of espresso and pour it into a cup.

Heat the milk to 150 degrees Fahrenheit, which is hot to the touch but not simmering. (Measure with a food thermometer)

Use a milk frother, to froth the milk until it’s very foamy.

For a cappuccino you’ll want a good amount of froth: you’re going for ⅓ espresso, ⅓ steamed milk and ⅓ foam.

Serve by pouring the milk and foam into the centre of the espresso cup.
