Greetings

I met a local espresso roaster in Dubai, UAE and he advised me to do ristretto for latte & cappuccino rather than espresso. For a latte the roaster told me to use an 8 ounce cup, extract a double ristretto 30ml. However, for a cappuccino he told me to use an 6 ounce cup, extract double ristretto 30 ml.

What do you think?

There are no rules. Try it, and if it tastes good to you, go ahead.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but a "traditional" Italian cappuccino is a doppio ristretto with 5 ounces of milk.
