A latte or cafe latte has become a pretty popular espresso based coffee drink around the globe.

A latte is simply steamed milk and at least 1 or multiple shots of espresso.

  • The steamed milk is then poured into the espresso slowly in a fashion that sends some of the crema to the top of the cup.

Skilled baristas can even create beautiful designs with the correct pour method.
