Many have experienced sticker shock at the coffee shop as inflation bumped costs for beans, cream, flavorings, transportation, and labor higher. A popular Seattle-based coffee chain announced it was increasing its prices across the board by 6 percent last year, according to the Associated Press, and several competitors followed suit.

Market experts are mixed on coffee’s price trajectory over the next two years. Regardless, a trip downstairs is always quicker and more affordable than a trip to the cafe – or to Italy, the home of the frothy beverage. The guide from Coffee Lover walks customers through the process of making cappuccino at home.

Rather than a pricey cappuccino maker, home baristas will only need simple tools like a percolator, milk frother, and sauce pan, according to Coffee Lover. The guide recommends an aluminum or stainless steel percolator with a capacity of 1 to 10 cups. Manual or battery-operated frothers will both yield good results.

Even though it’s a simple recipe, cappuccino is a relatively modern drink, when compared to tea or even standard coffee. A drink similar to cappuccino arose in Vienna coffee houses in the 1770s, titled “kapuziner.” The name came from the drink’s color, which was reminiscent of Capuchin monk robes, thanks to the combination of coffee and whipped cream.

The Viennese drink, which also includes cocoa and other flavors, has since become associated with the name “Wiener Melange.” Italian cappuccino, which emerged around 1900, is made simply from espresso grounds, milk, and sugar, which is why it’s so easy and affordable to make at home without complex machines and processes, according to Coffee Lover.

“Cappuccinos are a delicious coffee drink, but they can be expensive to buy from cafes,” a representative for the company said. “With just a few minutes of preparation, you’ll have a delicious and satisfying homemade cappuccino that costs a fraction of what you’d pay at the cafe.”

Coffee Lover was founded by Scott Hall, a long-time coffee connoisseur on a mission to create the perfect custom roast. Starting off with a workbench and a one-pound roaster, Hall experimented until arriving at an assortment of rich, full-bodied blends with just the right touch of acidity.
