The trick to the perfect cappuccino

Myth: Cappuccino’s silky magic is beyond the grasp of home baristas.  It’s just too delicate of a dance, best left to the cafe.

Nonsense, the perfect Italian cappuccino is a cinch. All you need is a little practise and some great Italian coffee…

Said great Italian coffee: We’re using Gimoka’s Deciso. A decisive and intense coffee, it can stand up to all that milk, ensuring you won’t be drinking a watered down mess, while its woody aroma with hints of bitter cacao is just what you want in a cappuccino.

The ratio: The perfect Italian cappuccino is 25ml espresso and 85ml fresh whole milk. Yep, sorry dieters, it has to be whole milk or you won’t get that great cafe froth.

The recipe:

  • Pour cold milk into your electric milk frother, about a third full and get frothing
  • Once it’s has finished, tap the base of the frothing jug firmly on the countertop to compress the foam
  • Prepare your Gimoka Deciso pod espresso in a large cup
  • Pour the foamed milk directly into the cup, first aiming for the centre, then continuing in a circular motion out toward the rim
  • Dust with bitter cacao

Our Gimoka and Gran Caffè Garibaldi espresso ranges are specifically designed for Nespresso machines. Designers spent years making them so they’re a perfect fit, which means they work just as well as a traditional Nespresso capsule and won’t harm your machine in the slightest. The brew process isn’t put under any extra strain when you use our compatible capsules and the coffee produced is just as good, if not better. Also Nespresso has repeatedly stated that using compatible capsules won’t void your warranty, so even if something goes pear shaped (which it won’t), you’re still covered. So sit back, relax and dream of Italy. Oh, and save hundreds of dollars a year drinking our not only cheaper, but also authentically Italian coffee!
