Yes, believe it or not there are five major types of Cappuccino?.

Think you know them? Reply to this topic and I'll be notified of your post, I'll relay the answers to you then and maybe you can let everyone know of some other types of Cappuccino.

****UPDATE****

I've had a few good responses to my topic but seems a little mystery frustrates people so I'll post the answers here and re-word everything.

"Hey, I heard that there are actually five different types of cappuccino, which were described to me as

Traditional - 1/3 Foam, 1/3 Steamed Milk, 1/3 Espresso

Cappuccino Chiaro - More Steamed Milk & Less Espresso

Cappuccino Scuro - More Espresso & Less Steamed Milk

Dry Cappuccino - More Foam & Less Steamed Milk

Wet Cappuccino - More Steamed Milk & Less Foam

.Is that right? Do you know of any more?"

I know two of them.
1 is the original Italian cappuccino, and also populized in, maybe, the whole Europe.
  Maybe the samething is called Melange in Austria and Germany.
2 is the American counterpart, probably started by *$s.
Not knowing others.

Hey,

Thanks for the feedback. I sent you an email to your profile address with the Five Types of Cappuccino so I can keep my topic going.

The Melange from Austria is one I haven't heard of, this is just the type of feedback I was looking for. Thanks!

I'm not quite sure what you are looking for.  There are certainly textbook definitions of cappuccino - and they vary sometimes greatly and can cause amusing arguments - but some kind of universally accepted taxonomy defining THE five types is something that has eluded me until now.  

So the best answer I can come up with would be:
  • Very Good Cappuccino
  • Good Cappuccino
  • Middling Cappuccino
  • Not Very Good Cappuccino
  • Most Other Cappuccino You Don't Make Yourself

Those aren't the five I have on my list but somehow I think you got a better way of looking at it than most anyone I could have come across. Cheers!

I like the way you think.  Those would have been my answers.

I've heard of "Wet" cappuccinos, which are almost like a latte, but have more foam, and "Dry" cappuccinos which are mostly just foam with very little milk.

I have no idea about the remaining three..

Yes, Traditional, Wet, Dry and you can get them with flavors at some places.

So that would be 4, ponder a 5th

I'm curious, why not just post something along the lines of, "Hey, I heard that there are actually five different types of cappuccino, which were described to me as <list>. Is that right? Do you know of any more?"

Since the purpose of this website is, generally speaking, to share knowledge and discoveries about our shared enthusiasm and appreciation of coffee, this post as it stands seems more like trolling for click-throughs to your website, since you display the hyperlink in your signature, than it does as a genuine attempt at conversation. Perhaps I'm mistaken, but why not just hold the conversation here, in public?

I couldn't have come up with a more negative response if I tried.

My topic was actually posted so I could create more interaction with people and if they click through to my site well then that's a plus isn't it?

I appreciate your thoughts but they just scream negativity to me????? Why?

The reason I posted the topic the way I did was so I could create ongoing interaction and not a topic which would die out, sincerely that was my intention. Now I took something and looked at it in a positive manner and you took it and looked at it as something negative immediately. I think that says as much about people as the kind of answers I was looking for about cappuccino.

I don't know you and forgive me if I seem rude but my intentions were different than you suspect but I do see your point and I guess I wouldn't be completely truthful if I said I didn't intend for the topic to help me interact more on the forum. So many people seem to show up and make a few posts and disappear forever. I'm trying to change that for me and for my interaction on the site.

That was my main intention and purpose. If you have an email in your profile I'll send you the answers I have for the question I asked. The question was asked in a way where I wouldn't supply the answer without responding to every post made. That was it.
