Step-by-step g​uide to a perfect cup of cappuccino at home


Ask the coffee freaks how challenging it is to get hold of a perfect cup of cappuccino. It may seem as easy as boiling an egg; mixing all the ingredients—sugar, coffee, and milk—in a pan; bringing it to a boil, and bam! All done!


That’s how boring people drink coffee. Because obtaining that perfect cup of happiness is no child’s play. Even for many coffee connoisseurs, equating to an apt proportion is a big struggle. With a slight imbalance, the entire indulgence can be thrown into an unpalatable cup.Thus, a perfect cup has an agreement with sheer chary.

But don’t worry, you won’t have to end up drinking machine blends all your life. This step-by-step guide will help you brew your own aromatic cup with pride.

All you need is:
1 cup milk
2 teaspoon instant coffee powder
2 teaspoon sugar
10 minutes of dedication


amul milk

You can take any brand of milk. Here I am opting for Amul Taaza. (Tip: For better results, use powdered milk. Preferably Everyday milk powder. I found it helpful)


milk pouring

Pour milk into a pan and bring it to a boil.



Meanwhile, take 2 teaspoons of instant coffee powder in your favorite mug. For instant coffee powder, I use Nescafe.



Add another 2 teaspoons of sugar.



Mix both ingredients using a spoon.



Take one teaspoon of milk from the boiling pan and mix well.

Consistency is the key. If the mixture is too dry, try adding a few more drops to it. But remember, each DROP counts. A slight imbalance can douse the entire mixture.



After you have mastered the consistency stage, whip the mixture, faster, slower, and at regular intervals, until the sugar dissolves, leaving no lumps. The blend should look thick.


milk boiling

Once the milk starts frothing, switch off the burner. Now is the time for magic. But hey, wait. There is a rule involved in dribbling milk into a coffee mug.

Make sure you pour milk from at least 15cms above and watch the blend form that desired froth.



Stir slowly making circular moves around the cup.



Whoa! There goes your aromatic cup of cappuccino.
