Espresso and cappuccino are both coffee drinks that are usually brewed with the use of an espresso machine. Both of these drinks use espresso as their base but they have a few differences that will be helpful to know for your next shot of caffeine. Espresso is made from densely packed fine grounds of coffee that is pressed down with very hot water. On the other hand, cappuccino is made from 1-2 shots of espresso with frothed and steamed milk.

Compared to the Americano, espresso has a stronger taste and thicker. A shot of espresso has almost the same caffeine kick as a cup of black coffee. This might be too strong to some people thus cappuccino would be a good recommendation for them.
