Cappuccino originated in post-World War II Italy Achilles Gaggia perfected his high pressure machine for making the espresso coffee mixed or topped with steamed milk or cream. It had a piston that created a high pressure extraction to produce a thick milky foam.

The name Cappuccino comes from the resemblance of its color to the robes of the Roman monks of the Capuchin order, which is light/darkish brown with a white hood.

The first use of cappuccino in English was recorded in 1948 in a work about San Francisco.
