What is a Café Latte?
It is a latte that is similar to a cappuccino. The difference is that it contains more milk. In Italian, Cafe latte means “coffee with milk”. A cafe latte typically mixes six to eight ounces of steamed milk with a shot or double shot of espresso
- Espresso, Steamed Milk, Foamed Milk
How to Make:
Prepare an espresso (single or double) directly into a latte glass.
1/3 fill your milk jug — whole milk is recommended
Purge your steam arm prior to attempting to steam your milk
Foam your milk prior to brewing your espresso, paying attention to creating a nice smooth microfoam
After foaming/frothing your milk, gently tap the jug or bump on a table to remove any unwanted large air bubbles
Begin pouring the frothed milk to your espresso from a relatively high position
Continue to pour whilst lowering the milk and steepening your pouring angle
Ensure a small amount of stiff milk foam sits on top after pouring
