Having homemade coffees on hand is nice for a quick hot drink, and makes a great gift for others, too. Put some in a Mason jar and tie a decorative ribbon around the neck. Tie a small card with the name of the contents and how to mix it.

Here is the cappuccino recipe that you asked for, as well as some other recipes for instant coffees:
