  1. First, steam the milk. Heat 1 cup of milk in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Let the milk simmer until bubbles form around the edges, but don’t boil the milk. Remove the pan from heat and set it on a flat surface.
  2. Next, whip the milk with an electric mixer, increasing the speed as the milk begins to thicken. Continue mixing until you get the desired volume of froth.
  3. Now, make the coffee. Measure 2 tablespoons of grounds for 5 to 6 ounces of water. Try using Folgers French Roast Coffee for a full-bodied taste, or make it with Folgers® Classic Decaf Coffee for less caffeine. You can brew the coffee in an automatic drip coffeemaker or a French press.
  4. Now, make the cappuccino! A classic cappuccino calls for 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, and 1/3 foam. You can mix it up by using 2 or 3 tablespoons of flavored syrups or even different kinds of milk, like chocolate or vanilla.
