WET VS. DRY – WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE
Two key terms to know when it comes to espresso drinks are “wet” and “dry” A “wet” drink has more creamy, hot milk. A “dry” drink has more frothed milk. The foam in dry drinks keeps them more insulated, so they stay hotter longer. Plus, they are great for making latte art in caffe lattes and other dry drinks.
For a cappuccino (or cap, as it is sometimes called), the difference is this: A wet cappuccino has more steamed milk than frothed milk. A dry cap has less steamed milk and more frothed milk. To add to this long list of coffee jargon, you can also order a cappuccino “bone dry,” which means only espresso and foam—no steamed milk at all and a “super wet” cappuccino is actually a latte since latte is espresso and steamed milk.
