About National Cappuccino Day
A cappuccino is an espresso-based coffee drink that originated in Italy, and is traditionally prepared with steamed milk foam.
'Cappuccino' takes its name from the Capuchin friars: the color of the espresso mixed with frothed milk was similar to the color of the Capuchin robe. ... The Italian word for this distinctive hood, cappuccio, gave rise to the Italian name for the order.
