This is not a cappuccino, but a caffe' macchiato. What I normally order when going out.
Macchiato means spotted and is topped with a small amount of steamed milk, a mini-cappuccino.
It seemed a good time to also talk about coffee rules in Italy.
We go to a bar for coffee, it is not an American bar to have drinks, but a place with all sorts of drinks, mostly espresso, juice
At home, one has breakfast normally with a caffe latte, a large hot milk with coffee and something to eat with it.
When you head out to work, you would stop and get an espresso out, from a bar which has a fabulous espresso machine and good coffee with a nice choice of pastries or savory.
If it is still early, you can have a caffe', caffe latte ( don't order a latte or you get a glass of hot milk) or a cappuccino or like I do a caffe' macchiato, which is a mini cappuccino.
Once you have moved on in the day, Italians do not EVER have a cappuccino.
NEVER after a meal, but if you would like a little milk, you can cheat and ask for a caffe macchiato any time of the day.
Check out this little video from New York, he has more espresso than I like but I suppose for what you pay in USA, might as well have a larger portion!
Our espresso's when made correctly are just a tiny sip of incredibly intense coffee, never half the cup, but should be about 1/4. If you want more to drink you can ask for a lungo or in a larger cup with more water an Americano.
