What is a Cappuccino?

Whether you’re an espresso enthusiast or are new to the espresso scene, we know it can be tricky to remember the subtle differences between espresso drinks. That’s why we’ve got your back with the answer to the frequently asked question, “what is a Cappuccino?”

Did you know that Dunkin’ offers a variety of handcrafted espresso options? That’s right, you can enjoy quality, approachable espresso beverages at a great value. When it comes to espresso, our high-quality Arabica beans are dark roasted, then freshly and finely ground. The espresso is then brewed by forcing hot water through the grounds at high pressure, delivering the rich, smooth taste of an espresso shot.

To create a Hot Cappuccino, a classic espresso drink offering frothy, bold deliciousness, we combine espresso with steamed milk, then top it with a thick layer of milk foam. For a refreshing Iced Cappuccino, we combine espresso with cold milk, then pour it over ice and top it with a thick layer of milk foam. You can customize your Hot or Iced Cappuccino just the way you like it with your choice of milk, almondmilk, or oatmilk, Dunkin’s newest non-dairy option, as well as classic and seasonal flavors.
