Can someone clear this up for me?
I thought I had read that the difference between latte and capps was the ratio of steamed milk to espresso - with capps having a higher content of coffee and thus being stronger than lattes.
Is this the difference? And why do I have trouble when I order a capp with NO foam? Is foam just a tradition or am I not knowing what I am talking about? My local small town barista told me today that her ratios were the same for both drinks and seemed a little confused when I said I wanted NO foam?
