1.The different of ingredients
Cappuccino has exactly the same ingredients to latte that are milk and coffee espresso.However,the difference between them is the amount and the form of the milk.The coffee at least has half of a cup of milk foam,while the latte has no more than 10% of the cup.In other words,the cappuccino mainly consists of milk foam,but the latte mainly consists of milk.
2.The difference of appearance
Look from the appearance,there is an obvious difference.On the one hand,the milk foam of cappuccino is higher than the rim of the cup,and the milk looks very full and smooth,it would not over flow though lightly shake the coffee cup.Compared to cappuccino,latte has only a layer thin milk foam,it general at the same height of the rim of the cup.On the other hand,the cup of cappuccino is smaller than latte.generally,cappuccino use the shorter ceramic cup,while latte use the higher mug cup.Due to both of these two coffee use the same amount of coffee espresso that made by the Italian coffee machine,so the size of the coffee cup means how much milk should be added into the coffee.Because the cup of cappuccino is smaller than latte,so the milk added to cappuccino is less than latte that decide the cappuccino has stronger coffee taste than latte.
3.The difference of the taste
The taste of different coffee is decided to the amount of different ingredients.The cappuccino has smoother taste and stronger coffee taste because of lots of milk foam and less milk.By comparison,we can know that the latte has more obviously milk taste and lighter coffee taste.
