In How's your Crapuccino on Word of Mouth (Food Blog from The Guardian), Warren Murray posits that the best way to have a good cappuccino in the UK is to make it yourself, at home.
He does not mince words: "On this side of the pond we've been known to heap ridicule on the Americans and their dishwater filter coffee, but let's face it: buy a cappuccino in the UK and there is a fair chance it will be crap."
It is true that some Americans like their coffee watered down.
In my days on the restaurant scene, I heard people complaining that the Decaf was too strong, I have to admit I was puzzled.
In the US, many people still have the bad manners of asking for a lemon peel with their espresso.
Many Italians would consider it a crime if you ordered a Cappuccino for Dinner as Delicious Italy tells us.
