Capo Triestino

Capo Triestino



logo Università del Caffè


  • 1 tbsp plus 1 or 2 tsp (20-25 ml) Espresso
  • 2 tbsp (33 ml) fresh whole milk


They say it was loved by intellectuals like James Joyce and Italo Svevo: this typical specialty from Trieste, which, when ordered at a café, is generally enjoyed at the counter, is a miniature Cappuccino, with more milk than a Macchiato, and is perfect for a quick breakfast. Served in a small glass, revealing its seductive color contrasts, it is also known as ‘capo in B’, from ‘Capo in Bicchiere’, or Capo in a Glass.

  1. Prepare the Espresso in the little glass you will serve it in.
  2. Foam the milk in the pitcher, using your Espresso machine’s steam wand.
  3. Pour the foam onto the coffee, filling the glass to the rim, and serve.
