It’s on the annual coffee calendar – National Cappuccino Day falls on November 8th, 2019. Its a celebration of all things we love about this smooth, foamy coffee creation.
The Cappuccino is believed to have been first invented in Italy in the early 1900s, with the first recorded reference being cited as appearing in the 1930s.
However, its etymology goes even further back and comes from the word ‘cappuccio’. One of the first uses of this term is in the first part of Dante’s Divine Comedy, Inferno, and was used by the poet to describe a group of reformist friars who opted to cover themselves from head-to-toe in brown fabric.
It is from this that the word cappuccino originates as the espresso is served ‘cloaked’ in milk.
This drink is now more popular than ever before, and is now seen as a
permanent fixture on the menu boards of coffee shops all over the world.
