When you order a latte at a café, you are most likely asking for a caffè latte (Italian for coffee with milk – sometimes written café latte). What you’ll get is a coffee drink with a shot (or two if you like a stronger drink) of espresso in an 8 oz glass with steamed milk and small amount of foam.

You can also make lattes at home if you have ground espresso coffee beans, a way to brew them, milk and a milk frothing implement. First, steam the milk to your desired temperature and then brew the espresso. Pour the espresso in the cup, add the steamed milk and froth it a bit on top. If you are a fan of flavoring, you can also add chocolate, hazelnut or many other delicacies to spice up your drink.
