How to make the perfect cappuccino at home

Making a cappuccino at home is actually quite easy! All you need is a good quality espresso machine and some fresh coffee beans. Start by grinding your beans and then brewing a strong espresso. Next, add some steamed milk to your espresso and top it off with a layer of foam. Use equal parts of espresso, steamed milk and milk foam(1:1:1) for a cappuccino.

First, you will need to brew a shot of espresso. Then, you will need to steam some milk. To do this, you will need a steamer or a milk frother. For a delicious pumpkin spice cappuccino recipe:  Add 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin spice and 1 tbsp of pumpkin puree(not pumpkin pie filling) or pumpkin pie syrup to the milk. Once the milk is steamed, you will need to pour it into the espresso. Be sure to pour the milk slowly so that it doesn't overwhelm the espresso.

Finally, you will need to top the cappuccino with some foam. To do this, you can either use a foam wand or simply spoon some foam from the top of the steamed milk. Garnish with pumpkin spice.
