What is a Muggaccino?


QUESTION:


I would like to know how much coffee would go into making a Muggaccino. Can you help?

ANSWER:

A Muggaccino is simply the name give to a Cappuccino that is served in a mug, rather than a glass.

To make Cappuccino, first make a single or double espresso, then add steamed milk and a little milk foam.

So, when you ask how much coffee goes into a Muggaccino, the accurate answer is, none. You make it with espresso, not coffee.

I would substitute "little foam" with "lot of foam" or "healthy amount of foam." Most restaurants get that wrong and serve you plain old lattes when you ask for a cappuccino. They're two different animals.
