A grande soy cappuccino, please.

I had a soy cappuccino today, a drink I haven’t ordered in years. I honestly felt like I was in Starbucks, and it almost seemed sacrilegious to order when a regular cappuccino is so delicious. But, I felt I had to try one in Italy. For awhile, I didn’t even know they were on the menu here, but it is a drink that some Italians order. It tasted . . . like what I expected! I thought it might taste different because the espresso is better in Italy, but the strong, rather chalky taste of the soy milk overpowered the delicate flavor of the coffee. I’ll take a regular cappuccino any day, but it wasn’t a completely wasted experiment. I also got to eat a lovely chocolate croissant.
