The number 1 on the Enneagram has idyllic expectations on life and is a rational thinker. According to enneagraminstitute.com “Ones are conscientious and ethical, with a strong sense of right and wrong. They are teachers, crusaders, and advocates for change: always striving to improve things, but afraid of making a mistake. Well-organized, orderly, and fastidious, they try to maintain high standards, but can slip into being critical and perfectionistic.”
In the world of specialty coffee the drink we chose to reflect the One is a perfect cappuccino. A cappuccino is a beautiful balance of espresso and silky textured milk in a cup small enough to allow you to enjoy the quality of the coffee. The markers of a “perfect” cappuccino is thick crema on the espresso and smooth milk texture which makes way for beautiful latte art. The cappuccino is ideally served at a temperature which allows you to enjoy the drink immediately.
There are other versions of the cappuccino, most common is a dry cappuccino. In a dry cap the milk is worked to a thick foam and is dolloped onto the espresso. The cappuccino is also similar to the popular Australian “flat white.” Don’t let Mike Myers fool you a cappuccino comes in one size, “Did someone order the large cappuccino? Hello!” (So I Married an Ax Murderer)
