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.
