CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Wednesday is National Cappuccino Day, which is the perfect drink for a frosty morning, meeting with friends, or just to enjoy.

A cappuccino is an Italian coffee drink that is prepared with espresso, hot milk, and steamed milk foam, according to the National Day Calendar.

The word cappuccino is from the Capuchin friars and is the diminutive form of cappuccio in Italian, meaning hood or something that covers the head. This drink is named after the color of the hooded robes that the friars wore.
