I hate it when my cappuccino comes out more like a burnt confused latte. I worked in coffee for 3 years or so, and I know very well that well-made, as-good-as-you-can-get-from-a-coffee-chain cappuccino is not that hard to construct. Unfortunately, for lack of time and the ability to tolerate poorly made coffee drinks, I declined to bring today's cappuccino to my corner Starbucks' attention. le sigh. So my cappuccino today was heavy; more like an extra foam latte than anything else. I could even taste the fact that the barista who made it probably let the espresso shots oxidize. Yea, three shots of espresso in a 16oz. beverage is supposed to taste strong, but not 'burnt.' ...I still drank it, all of it.
