How to Make a Cappuccino with a French Press

In my search for ‘french press’ articles, I came across this one at wikiHow. When they say make a cappuccino, they are not only talking about making the coffee with a French press. They suggest a method for frothing milk using a French press.

They say to heat the milk and pour into a French press. Then do the following:

Cover with the top/filter and pump up and down. The froth is created by pumping down into the milk and pumping up out of the milk while holding the top down. Continue pumping until desired froth is reached. Pour frothy milk over the espresso/coffee.

I’d rather use a milk frother if I were to attempt to make cappuccino milk without an espresso machine, but if you’d like an alternative, there you go.
