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.
