A coffee shop in Croatia has earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records with its enormous, 440-gallon cup of cappuccino, now officially the world's biggest.

A Zagreb location of Julius Meinl, a Vienna-based coffeehouse that has been in operation for about 150 years, enlisted more than 20 traditional coffee machines to fill the huge mug.

The shop's manager Marko Crnogorac told several publications that the cappuccino was made "exactly how it should be:"

"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," he said.

The baristas filled the giant mug cup by cup with traditionally-prepared cappuccino: one part espresso, one part warm milk and one part foam.

Guinness World Records judge Seyda Subasi-Gemici said the Julius Meinl team beat the previous record by more than 100 gallons.
