National Cappuccino Day
It is well-known for its wide range of coffee drinks. Cappuccinos are beloved by coffee lovers, and despite their vague history, many people still enjoy the warmth that this hot, foamy milk beverage brings.
National Cappuccino Day is a day of joy where anyone can enjoy a cup of frothy, whipped coffee with any meal. Let’s look at the history of National Cappuccino Day.
Cappuccino was originally named after the Capuchin Friars. They are a minor order within the Franciscan Church that is based in Rome, Italy. These 16th-century friars were known for their missionary work helping the poor. They were committed to extreme poverty, austerity, and simplicity.
The name Marco d’Aviano is believed to have been given the name because he wore a brown robe and a pointed hood. According to the Telegraph in 1683, an Ottoman Turk army attempted to march into Vienna. d’Aviano gathered the outnumbered Christian troops, and they won the battle for Vienna.
Legend has it that the Turks fled to Ottoman coffee. The Christians found it bitter and sweetened it with honey and milk, and named it after the Order of Capuchins.
Another source claims that the idea for the cappuccino drink originated in Austria’s “Kapuziner” coffee houses. These coffee houses used coffee with cream, sugar, and later added spices. No one knows where exactly the name originated.
The cappuccino coffee drink we all know today was created in Italy during 1900, shortly after the invention and popularity of the espresso machine. In the 1930’s, the first recorded record of modern cappuccino was made. Back then, espresso machines were rather bulky and complicated-certainly not something the average person would have at home in their kitchen. As the Italian coffee culture developed, specialty cafes and baristas were key to its success.
The espresso machine was improved after World War II. This changed the way cappuccinos are made. They now use steamed cream and frothed cream.
