Did you know that the name "Cappuccino" originated from the Capuchin monks, whose robes are chocolate in color decorated with cream colored rope as belts? Cappuccino, which is an Italian drink made from espresso, hot milk, and steamed-milk foam, share the same color as the monks' robes, so that's why it is named after the Capuchin monks.

It is said that Italian never drink Cappuccino, either it be hot or iced, after 11 AM because they believe that the milk contained in the drink will disturb their digesting system. Italian consider milk as heavy meal, same like scones for English people and rice for Indonesian people, that is why they usually only drink a glass of Cappuccino for breakfast without toasts or boiled eggs. 

I personally like Cappuccino because it has this interesting flavor and aroma. I once was served with a glass of instant cappuccino at a car showroom, which surprisingly tasted great. I also bought myself a cup of instant cappuccino a while ago that tasted as good as it looked. It tasted milky and sweet, yet bitter and asdfghjkl, but pretty much delicious and amusing.
