I'm not quite sure what you are looking for.  There are certainly textbook definitions of cappuccino - and they vary sometimes greatly and can cause amusing arguments - but some kind of universally accepted taxonomy defining THE five types is something that has eluded me until now.  

So the best answer I can come up with would be:
Very Good Cappuccino
Good Cappuccino
Middling Cappuccino
Not Very Good Cappuccino
Most Other Cappuccino You Don't Make Yourself

OK, stupid question then.. I apologize if it sounds rude...

Why wouldn't you just post your answer on the forum itself?

I've heard of "Wet" cappuccinos, which are almost like a latte, but have more foam, and "Dry" cappuccinos which are mostly just foam with very little milk.

I have no idea about the remaining three..

Hey Thanks for your Input! I sent you the answers to your MSN email that was in your profile. Cheers!

Yes, Traditional, Wet, Dry and you can get them with flavors at some places.

So that would be 4, ponder a 5th

So I can get different answers from everyone, just a different attempt at interacting with more forum members so it'll force me to respond to everyone.

I know it's a different approach but honestly just trying something a little different to have better interactions.

A little mystery in life adds to the adventure wouldn't you think?

Traditional - 1/3 Foam, 1/3 Steamed Milk, 1/3 Espresso

Posted May 17, 2013 link

Actually, to my knowledge the the traditional Italian cappuccino recipe is 1 caffè espresso (25 ml) + 125 ml frothed milk, wheareas 1 Caffè espresso (25 ml) + 120 ml hot milk + 80 ml frothed milk is a Latte macchiato, something Italians serve their children.

I'm sorry but this double-speak is pure nonsense, as was your private e-mail about "keeping your topic up on Coffeegeek without giving away the answers," as was the whole notion of there being exactly five kinds of cappuccino to begin with.  

The Coffeegeek Forum is not your private quiz show, or a stump-the-members game or a scam-let to drive traffic to your own site under the guise of a plausible coffee question.  

If you want to interact on this forum with other members about coffee, that's great and we'll all love to have you.  If not, please find something else to do.

Just a personal thing, but:

-I don't care for adding anything to coffee.  There's more than enough variation in just the coffee itself that watering it down (and yes, in my opinion it is watering the coffee down) with milk is (again, my opinion) a waste.  The basic recipe for cappuccino cuts perfectly good coffee by 50% with hot milk.  Just changing the recipe from whole to skim to 2% changes the recipe so much that you could have overextracted crap and still have something vaguely drinkable by the time you cut it with hot milk.

-I generally don't do espresso because the flavor concentration is just too high for my personal tastes.  When I do enjoy it, I cut it to about 2% strength.  For me, the super low yield ristretto experience is just too transient (2-3 tablespoons) for me.

Dunno why I felt I needed to respond.  :D

"Dunno why I felt I needed to respond."

You felt the need to respond because the Dark Side of the Force is strong on this thread, Padawan.
