Tonino Lamborghini Cappuccino


  • Freshly ground coffee beans (preferably a dark roast or espresso blend)
  • Fresh milk (whole milk for a creamier texture, or alternatives like almond or oat milk)
  • Sugar (optional)
Best Italian Coffee Beans


  • Espresso machine or a moka pot
  • Milk frother or steam wand
  • Coffee grinder (if using whole beans)
  • Measuring spoon

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Choose High-Quality Coffee Beans

    • Start with high-quality coffee beans for the best flavor. Tonino Lamborghini’s espresso blends are perfect for a rich, aromatic cappuccino. For a true Italian experience, use freshly roasted coffee beans.
  2. Grind Your Beans

    • Use a coffee grinder to grind your coffee beans to a fine consistency. The grind size should be finer than what you use for a drip coffee maker but not as fine as powdered sugar.
  3. Brew Your Espresso

    • If you have an espresso machine, use it to brew a shot of espresso. Alternatively, you can use a moka pot to achieve a similar strong coffee. For one cappuccino, you’ll need about 1-2 tablespoons of ground coffee for a 2-ounce shot.
  4. Steam Your Milk

    • Use a steam wand or a milk frother to steam your milk. Aim for a smooth, velvety texture. Whole milk froths best, but you can use alternatives like almond or oat milk. Heat the milk to around 150°F, being careful not to scald it.
  5. Froth Your Milk

    • Create a frothy top by swirling the milk in the frother or using a handheld milk frother. The goal is to achieve a microfoam – small, fine bubbles that give the milk a silky texture.
  6. Combine and Serve

    • Pour the espresso into your cup, then add the steamed milk, holding back the foam with a spoon. Finally, top your cappuccino with the frothy milk. You can add a sprinkle of cocoa powder or cinnamon for an extra touch of flavor.

Tips for the Perfect Cappuccino:

  • Use Fresh Ingredients: Freshly ground coffee and fresh milk make a significant difference in flavor and texture.
  • Maintain the Right Temperature: Avoid overheating the milk, as it can affect the taste and texture. The ideal temperature is around 150°F.
  • Practice Frothing: Achieving the perfect froth takes practice. Experiment with different types of milk and frothing techniques to find what works best for you.
  • Enjoy Immediately: Cappuccinos are best enjoyed fresh. Serve immediately after preparation to enjoy the full flavor and texture.
