How To Make the Perfect Cappuccino According to the World Barista Champion (Almost NSFW)

What do I want for Christmas? I’ll settle for a little more insight into how to make the perfect cappuccino, the stuff that has reliably kept this site running day in, day out, for the past 9 years.

Enter Michael Phillips, Director for Education at Blue Bottle Coffee and the 2010 World Barista Champion, who, in this video produced by Munchies, offers a six minute primer on cappuccino-making. When all is said and done, what’s my takeaway? To achieve coffee Nirvana, maybe I need some better gear, like a La Marzocco. Or maybe, really, I need to take my love of coffee to another level, as Phillips clearly does in a nearly x-rated moment at the very end. As with so many things, it’s not the gear, but the love and dedication, that makes the difference.
