A team of 1,000 baristas in Croatia have successfully broken the world record for the biggest cup of cappuccino in the world.
They used 22 coffee machines to create the coffee monster and set the record at a staggering 440 gallons (2,000 litres) of cappuccino – equivalent to 3,384 Venti (large) cappuccinos in Starbucks, or nine full bath tubs!
And the team didn’t cut any corners either – they worked for three hours creating the cappuccino in the traditional, Italian way.

“In total there are about one thousand baristas here. A thousand people, really, who do this job every day, who make cappuccinos every single day, and they are certainly good at this,” said Julius Meinl, whose shop in Zagreb, Croatia, sponsored the world record challenge.
'What is also interesting is that we make cappuccinos by the book, so one third espresso, one third milk foam.
So each and every cappuccino here is made exactly how it should be.”
Guinness World Records judge Seyda Subasi-Gemici was present during the attempt and her announcement that they had broken the world record was greeted with huge cheers.
“This record category is a new record category at Guinness World Records,” she said.

“And always when there's a new record category there is a minimum requirement that has to be fulfilled.
“And in this case for the largest cappuccino - actually largest cup of cappuccino - it has to be a minimum of 1,500 litres.”
