Everyone’s Favorite, the Cappuccino

The Origins of Cappuccino

Originating in Austria, the cappuccino is easily one of the world’s favourite coffee drinks. Typically made of double espresso shots and steamed milk, the drink provides a perfect balance of taste and caffeine to people across the globe.

Originally called “kapuziner”, a German name, the drink as we generally know it first appeared in Viennese coffee shops sometime in the 1700s. Cappuccino, as a name, comes from the Italian word “cappuccino”, meaning hood, and is believed to have been inspired by a Capuchin monk—hence the name.

In its original form, the cappuccino (then “kapuziner”) was found in German and Austria coffee houses, and was first described as simply “coffee with milk and sugar”, with no other mention of it composition or how it was created. When it pops up in writing again in the 1850s, it is described similarly, but with the addition of spices, though there is no mention of exactly which spices those may have been.

The name “kapuziner”, which was inspired by the Capuchin monks as previously mentioned, refers not to the actual hood of the monks but rather the colour of the hood, which was similar to the colour of the drink after the milk was added.

From Kapuziner to Cappuccino

The Italian variation of the cappuccino does not appear until the 1930s, and it appears to resemble a Viennese coffee with whipped cream which is then sprinkled with cinnamon or chocolate. Over the next few decades, the drink evolved into the basis of the cappuccino as we know it, with the steamed milk covering.

North Americans originally mistook the steamed milk “cover” as the basis for the name, believing the white covering to be the “monk’s hood”, though of course that was later discovered to not be the case.

The Best Alternative to Milk and Creamer

The best alternative to using traditional milk, creamers, and half-and-half is Dure Foods liquefying creamer. This is the best way to have a creamer product because it doesn’t take up too much space in a kitchen, or end up going to waste because you don’t use it in time, and it’s easy to carry around or add to various recipes.

Great Ways to Use Liquefying Creamer

Contrary to what many people believe, powdered or liquefying creamer doesn’t always have to be used in coffees or teas. There are other great uses for liquefying creamer, such as in yogurts, pancakes, gravies, and soups.

Adding flavoured creamers to yogurt can enhance the taste of yogurt and give it an extra creamy flavour. Unflavoured creamer can also be used in the place of milk in any mashed potato recipe, and it works well as a milk substitute for sauces, gravies, and soups.

Powdered or liquefying creamer can also be used in more complicated recipes like in soufflés. A great way to use hazelnut flavoured creamers is in a sweet potato soufflé.

Advantages of Powdered Creamer

The best advantage to our powdered or liquefying creamer is that it will cut your costs! One gallon of our non-dairy creamers is cheaper than a normal gallon of milk, cream, and even dairy half-and-half.

Another advantage of buying the powdered or liquefying creamer at Dure Foods is that it cuts the cost of storage. The packages at Dure Foods are 1.2-pound pouch-packs and only takes up a few inches on a dry shelf compared to the gallon that would take up space in the fridge.

The third advantage of the great powdered creamer is that it cuts down the cost of running the refrigerator. Since you don’t need to refrigerate the milk or creamer, then there isn’t a need to continually open the refrigerator. The way that Dure Foods powdered or liquefying creamer cuts down on waste is that you are only going to use what you need.

How it Keeps Customers Happy

A great way to keep customers happy through powdered creamer is that it cannot be tasted and is healthier in baked products. It also tastes great in coffee or teas.

Additionally, liquefying creamer means it’s not just comparable to half-and-half—it’s even better than non-dairy products. It has a great consistency that is rich and creamy no matter how or where the products are used. Our fine granulation also is great for customers because it prevents our products from clumping, making it more appetizing.
