In the Netherlands, the average Dutch person therefore drinks about three cups of coffee a day. In addition, drinking a cup of cappuccino is becoming increasingly popular in the Netherlands. Originally, cappuccino was mainly drunk during breakfast, but nowadays we drink it all day, after all, there is not so good if you start your busy working day quietly with a newspaper and a cappuccino in the coffee shop on the corner or after dinner just as delicious to enjoy with a cup of cappuccino? Often it is not even considered that drinking a delicious cup of cappuccino is unhealthier than a cup of coffee and is often accompanied by more calories, so that cappuccino can sometimes be seen as an unhealthy fattener.
