Make DIY Cappuccino Coffee On A Budget With My Italian Man!


My husband Luca promised something to you, guys. He’s the kind of man who always keeps his promises. Yes, I know, he’s sweet… That’s why I fell for him.

Today is the day when he’s going to show you how to make a perfect Italian cappuccino coffee on a budget. A DIY cappuccino. Without a machine. But with lots of foam. And with lots of love!

All you need is just a very cheap gadget that you can find at Ikea or many other stores for just a few dollars, and a simple Italian cafetiere for espresso, which are quite trendy now, so you might even have it lying around your home. If not, they’re pretty cheap and unbelievably useful. There’s nothing like espresso made in that traditional metal thing that you can find at every single Italian home, no matter where it is.

This video was inspired by all of your requests when we asked if you wanted to see it. But also by hundreds of guests who have tried Luca’s cappuccino and were amazed to see how easy it was to make it. A lot of them even confessed that they already had that little cheap gadget, but they had no clue how to use it. Well, now we’ll make sure you never become one of those people! 🙂

We hope you’ll enjoy your DIY cappuccino coffee from now on, and if you do give this recipe a try, please let us know!

Lots of love,

Vita & Luca xx

P.S. Please show some support to Luca if you like his work. It was the first time he starred in a video alone, so the poor guy was really nervous. But it all came out so well, I think. What do you think?
