History of the Cappuccino

In Italian, the word “cappuccino” means “little capuchin” and is a way of saying a little hood, or head covering—no, it does not mean a little capuchin monkey, although the words share the same history. The drink took its name from the monks and nuns of the Capuchin order, who wore hooded robes that look remarkably similar to the coffee-colored border around the edge of the frothed milk in the cappuccino beverage.
