What is a Bone Dry Cappuccino?

Coffee is not just coffee to avid coffee lovers around the world. It is their morning assistant, their rocket fuel, their cupped lighting, their brain juice, etc. And when you are that close to this drink, you are not as afraid to try an uncommon version of it. Some would stay a mile away from bone dry cappuccino, but not you, you like the thrill.

But a little research doesn’t hurt. So, here’s all that you need to know about the bone-dry cappuccino before going for it tomorrow morning.


Are you someone who is just starting out in this delectable yet confusing world of cappuccino? If yes, then there’s some basic information you should have under your sleeve before you begin.

Cappuccino is one of the most loved coffee regardless of the continent you might be on. In the recipe, it is simply a blend of one-third steamed milk, one-third espresso, and one-third foam. And how do you get espresso, you ask? Espresso is made by forcing steam into the coffee grounds.

Types of Cappuccinos

Everybody loved cappuccino, but the one-size-fits-all drink didn’t work for too long. And they had to roll out three different types of cappuccino to keep everyone happy.

Bone Dry Cappuccino

Bone dry cappuccino is the regular cappuccino minus the steamed milk. So, when you order a bone dry, you get a cup mainly full of frothed milk foam and a shot of espresso. The absence of steamed milk is what gave it the name that it has.

This will be a great addition to your breakfast if you are looking for an extra push one morning. Just to give you a little heads up, no milk also makes the coffee taste stronger than it otherwise would. So, it might be the best choice if you don’t like strong tasting coffee.

Dry Cappuccino

Can a drink really be dry? Well, dry cappuccino again contains the regular cappuccino at the base except that the amount of milk added to it is lesser than normal. Also, the foam layer on this cappuccino is pretty thick, but not as thick as the bone dry one.

This is a safe route between wet and bone dry if you would like a moderately strong coffee. Also, the foam being considerably thick acts as an insulator and doesn’t let the coffee go cold too soon.

Wet Cappuccino

If you are all about coloring inside of the lines, then wet cappuccino is the drink for you. And that’s because it is not extreme in any way. With wet cappuccino, you get a shot of espresso at the base with heaping amounts of steamed milk and thin layering of milk foam. Having more milk than the other two variants makes it the ‘wet’ type. This is sure to satisfy your cravings for a hot and creamy drink.

Have you been missing out on these amazing coffee drinks just because you don’t have enough knowledge? Then it’s definitely time to change that. Read up a little and go treat yourself to a cup of new coffee this time.
