Cappuccino is a coffee drink composed of espresso and hot milk, with the surface topped with foamed milk. Cappuccinos are most often prepared on an espresso machine. The espresso is extracted into the bottom third of the cup, followed by a similar amount of hot milk, which is prepared by heating and texturing the milk using the espresso machine steam wand. The top third of the drink consists of milk foam; this foam can be decorated with artistic drawings made with the same milk, called latte art. In a traditional cappuccino, as served in Europe and artisan coffee houses in the United States, the total of espresso and milk/foam make up between approximately 150–180 ml (5–6 imp fl oz; 5–6 US fl oz). Commercial coffee chains in the US more often serve the cappuccino as a 360 ml (13 imp fl oz; 12 US fl oz) drink or larger.
Cappuccino differs from caffè latte foremost in size: Cappuccino is traditionally small (max 180 ml), while ‘latte’ traditionally is large (200-300 ml). Cappuccino traditionally has a 1cm+ topped layer of textured milk micro foam; Caffè Latte is often served in a large glass; cappuccino mostly in a cup with a handle.
